A special shout-out this week to a great man and friend. But first, three things:
Three things in life that, once gone, never come back –
Three things in life that may never be lost –
Three things in life that are most valuable –
Three things in life that are never certain –
Three things that make a man –
Three things in life that can destroy a man –
Three things that are truly constant –
Today, I want to celebrate Father Juan M. Lopez, who retired after 60 years of service to the Lord, 34 of those in our parish of Sts. Peter & Paul. We wish him a happy and healthy retirement, and we thank him for his friendship and dedication, and for the difference he has made in the lives of so many.
Father Lopez wore many hats, including that of a photographer. Here he is in 2013 taking a picture of our family at the end of our vow renewal ceremony.
“The measure of a man’s greatness is not the number of servants he has, but the number of people he serves.”
