Blog: NY Chutzpah. NJ Turnpike. Buffalo Priests, JOY.

NJ Turnpike:
As I drove down the NJ Turnpike from Manhattan, I prayed the Rosary with my wife and 10, 7, 6 & 2 year old kids.  No one complained. Their praying voices were just music to my ears.  It was one of my greatest blessings and I thank God.  

NY Chutzpah:
They were charging $60 for parking near the convention center. I drove a few blocks away and found this place where they stacked 4 cars using hydraulics. That place charged $20.

The Blues & JOY:
A friend posted in FB that she is down.  So I hope this helps:
I get the blues myself and those remind me of what St. Augustine said:  "Our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee O My God."  And what JOY means i.e. J is Jesus 1st, O is others 2nd & Y is yourself last.

Buffalo priests:  cf.
The Irish child abuse scandal has grown to a point that perhaps the only way to save the good clerics is to extract them there and replace them with "Buffalo priests" from Africa, Latin America and Asia.  Otherwise, there's a whole lot of ugly that can blow up anytime and that can result in the loss of faith or of lives. ( similar to the Buffalo soldiers at WWII)

Buffalo Soldier 9 said...

How do you keep a people down? ‘Never' let them 'know' their history.

Keep telling that history; read some great military history.

The 7th Cavalry got their butts in a sling again after the Little Big Horn Massacre, fourteen years later, the day after the Wounded Knee Massacre. If it wasn't for the 9th Cavalry Buffalo Soldiers, there would of been a second massacre of the 7th Cavalry. Read the book, “Rescue at Pine Ridge”, and visit website/great military history,
