It's the real thing


Got a card in the mail today from the Archdiocese:

"Dear Mr. Chonak,

Please accept my appreciation to that already extended to you by Bishop Lennon for your generous contribution to The Annual Catholic Appeal...."

Huh? Did the Development Office lay off its highly-paid proofreaders? Or is this some new technique in fund-raising mail: to keep a few solecisms and typos so that we will know the note was written by a bishop? (Exercise for the perfectionistic reader: identify them.)

[Oh, this is too cynical; I should post something more constructive than this.]


how about a review of your reception at IHM in concord nh? did you get a chance to see the Padre Pio chapel for Eucharistic Adoration?
I am so very bummed that I couldn't make the C&G workshop!

Wow... book reading makes speaking English good.

I'll bite. I would have replaced "accept" with "add." Being before noon, though, it's too early to tax my brain any further.

What? Who?

On life and living in communion with the Catholic Church.
