The Names Change...

...But, the mission remains the same.  Sister Adrian has retired.  Sister Maryalice now runs "Friends of the Poor."  Bishops Timlin, Dougherty, and Martino have made way for Bambera.  The high school kids who have assisted with the Easter food distribution in years past have graduated.  A new batch of young people is in their place.

The people who need help are still here, and there seem to be more every year.  The economy is in tough shape.  A couple financial pros debated Tuesday on "Good Morning America," just before I left for Holy Family Church in Scranton.  The bottom line is that even the experts don't know what will happen next.  The people who showed up for a little holiday help don't know what the future holds.  There are so many sad stories.

Through it all, it's nice to know there are those willing to lend a hand, even if it's one meal, for one day.

I snapped this camera phone picture during the blessing Tuesday morning.

I hope you and your family have a great Easter.
