  3. I told our son, who is 10, about the commemoration of St. Thomas. He loves the movie "Becket," and once, when he was little, ran around the house with a blanket on his shoulders shouting, "I'm Becket!" Blessings to you, Kindred!

  4. Happy feast day to you all, and thank you for your very nice comments. I have a little saint, Thomas Edmund, in Heaven so this is a very special day for me. May Almighty God give us the grace to live our Faith always and everywhere. And may He bless you all abundantly.
