As I was pulling out of the parking lot at work to go to St. Mary’s for the Friday rosary I could not help but notice that the car leaving in front of me had the license plate of XX13. I drove to Leesburg and picked Ted up. We drove to Emmitsburg and as we were pulling into the parking lot of St. Mary’s the car in front of us had the license plate of XX33. We prayed 15 decades of the rosary and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. We then went to the parish hall for refreshments as we do every week.
When we left I told Ted that I would like to stop and visit Sister Genevieve for a few minutes. When we arrived Ted waited in the truck because he said he was not feeling well and was tired. I went in and visited with Sr. Genevieve for a few minutes and she asked if I was planning to come to the 1st Mission of Mercy mass this coming Sunday at St. Mary’s. I told her that I was coming and so was S.C.C. and C.R.C. I told her that I would pick her up and take her if she was feeling up to it. She said she would like that.
Ted and I then rode over to St. Joseph’s on the way home and when we arrived there the time was 9:13. The steeple clock has been fixed and is now displaying the correct time. We drove back to Leesburg and I dropped Ted off. I then drove the rest of the way home and pulled in my driveway at 11:33 and the odometer was 13.
I have included this as an example of a typical, ordinary trip to the Friday rosary at St. Mary’s. I have not included nights like this in the past in my written descriptions because it is similar to this each and every Friday.
