  • Thank you for making us all realize our responsibilities as Christians to open our minds and hearts to others. Sometimes it starts by letting others know us. I miss your pew buddy, too! We were blessed to have him with us. He would watch me when I cantored and often smile if he caught my gaze.

  • This is so true! We don't get to know each other well even though we are together sharing the same faith and believes every Sunday! Thanks for making us think about this more, Mary!

  • Mary, I think the Holy Spirit has inspired you to do this! And I think your pew buddy is "smiling down" at your efforts to build community, one "hi" at a time. What greater tribute can you pay to someone who served and built our country--and served God right until the end--than to do this. I'll join you, my friend. Thanks for the great reminder.

  • Hi, as I was reading your blog I realized that what you say is really true of so many of us. From now on I will try to be more involved. Thank you.

  • This is inspiring. We are merging and it is difficult for some to reach out to others. It is important to begin by saying hello!

  • My Mom and I don't go to church anymore ( she is elderly & gave up driving, I am disabled - Cerebral Palsy). I miss going and we don't have anyone to bring us Communion. I do watch the Mass on EWTN, and feel I do know everyone in the Chapel!!! Hopefully someday, I can have someone bring Communion to the house again. And also, we did know people where we went to Mass, where we live, and we lived in quite a few places... I still have contact with a few by e-mail!

  • Hi i am happy too to be a part of this ... in my case as a young family man i and my wife sees to it that our obligation in "PASSING OF THE FAITH " to our five children is even effective so to speak because we bring them to Church on Sundays likewise we bring them to celebrate Eucharist in our community where we Walk..."Neo-Catechumenal Way" GOD BLESS TO ALL

  • Sr. Cindy, I hope and pray that you can find someone to bring you Communion. Surely there is a group in your parish that does this. I'm sure you already have, but if not, I encourage you to call your local parish and ask. No one should have to go without the Eucharist, especially someone like you who has so faithfully served her Church. I will keep you in my prayers. Many blessings dear lady.

  • He was quite the thinker! I was blessed with having him be a part of a small group once. I also will miss the tomatoes he was so generous with at our picnics. I got to see his family pictures, he was a loving family man and gentleman farmer! Thanks for writing about him. We all will miss him!

  • Mary, you'll be proud of me. I bit the bullet and went to a new playgroup at my church this morning so that I can be part of a community. (We just moved and continue to get adjusted.) Anyway, your article was timely and I wanted to thank you for the great prompt to reach out to those around us. It's hard sometimes but important! :) You're so faithful!
