Joachim & Anne

For Catholics, today, July 26, is the feast of Saint Joachim and Saint Anne, the parents of the Virgin Mary.

I've had a life-long connection to these grandparents of our Lord. My parents were married and I was baptized in St. Anne's Church in Bulger, PA. And, I took Joachim as my confirmation name.

July 26 also is a special day in these parts. At 10:18 a.m. today, I turned the big 3-1.
