What is a Grand Prize to you? Some people might smile and say, "If I won a million dollars...what a prize!" Well, what do you think of: Heaven. Heaven? Clouds and gold streets...boring! But Heaven is more than that. It is being with God who is Love and Joy and Truth and Beauty and Happiness and even more...in all the glory and all the wonders...FOREVER. Now that's worth more than a mere million, and it can be yours. How? Jesus shows us! He is The Way! We can read the Bible. We can pray. We can find out how to live. We can be with other people who are trying (our Church members).
NOW is the time to start. Lent is the perfect time to look at your life right now and change what you need to get to Heaven.
PLAIN and SIMPLE
In the South: dates and places vary...ask Jane Long.

On Feb 18, Ola Wratten, a member of the Syracuse Deaf community died after a long battle with cancer. She died at St Francis House. People who take care of the sick at this House were with Ola when she gave up her spirit to God. They held her hand and prayed with her. Ola was a person who was satisfied with very little. She enjoyed the simple things in life. Now she has the best gift of all-eternal life with our loving God.

Hi everyone! Sabbatical time continues. It is a good time for thinking, praying and learning. I miss everyone!
On Feb 1, I began driving to Texas. It took me 10 days to get here, with stops in Erie Pa, Cleveland OH, Greenville OH, louisville KY, St louis MO, Joplin MO,and Ft Worth TX. I visited relatives and friends in many of these places.
One of my favorite sights on the trip was seeing the arch over St Louis from many miles away. Wow! It is big! Also, I found out that lots of places in Missouri and Oklahoma have small hills, it is not all flat. In Kentucky, I stopped to see the Gethsemane Abbey. A famous holy person, Thomas Merton once lived there.
I arrived in San Antonio on Saturday Feb 12. I am at the Mexican American
Cultural Center, to learn Spanish. The program continues until April
21st. Then I will drive home, and see other friends and family along the
way, in Alabama and Florida. I will return to the Syracuse area in the
middle of May. Here In San Antonio, I am in a area where mostly Mexican-Americans
I am living at the Mexican American Cultural Center (MACC). I have not yet seen a Deaf Mass here, but I will have to check that out. All the buildings are new, and it is a plaesure to be here. The weather is warm and sunny, 75 to 80 degrees everyday this week.
The classes are keeping me very busy! I have lots of homework, and I am working hard to learn a lot. Well, that's all for now! I have to go back to my homework! I think of you all often in my prayers!
My address in Texas, until April 21 is:
Fr Pete W.
