We were surprised this week when Brenda, the Office Manager at our local parish, called all excited and told us that our Pastor, Father Mike, had directed her to the Bishop's "Monday Memo." The Bishop sends this memo out weekly by way of the diocesan website. Brenda told us the Bishop had written a section about us and our blog, and gave us the web address.

Importance of Hospitality - I shared with you last week the wonderful experience of this year's Celebration of Marriage Mass at St. Augustine's Cathedral.
Among the couples celebrating their marriage anniversaries were Jerry and Suzy, who describe themselves in their "Our Life on Wheels" blog, as "old married folks, since 1960. After raising two daughters and helping with their kids, we hit the road in 2002 and haven't stopped since. We are full-time RVers - no house, no jobs, no lawn to mow, and like rolling stones, we gather no moss."
Their blog entry about what they experienced at the celebration is priceless. I think you will enjoy reading it. There is a beautiful example of the importance of hospitality in their account.
The Bishop even included a link to our blog! We tried it and it worked.
But what I am wondering is -- where did Bishop Kicanas come across our blog? We sure didn't tell him, or anyone else, that we write a blog. We didn't give anyone our traveling card that lists the blog address. Even though he is the Bishop of Tucson, I don't think he has supernatural powers to pick things out of the air. I guess the Diocese has a search engine that picks up Internet references to the Diocese or the Bishop.
However he found us, we were so pleased that he mentioned us on his website, and even put in the link to ... Our Life on Wheels
