Wandervogel Diary

The relationship I had with my father left much to be desired. He was always a distant and troubled man and, after his divorce from our mother, a largely absent figure in my life. By the time he died in 1988, we were virtually estranged.

He responded to this sorry situation by designating me as his executor and left me with a neatly organized file drawer of materials as a legacy of his life, as well as a bundle of cash and mementos to distribute fairly between me, my sister, and brother. As I studied the contents of these files, it was as if my father were speaking to me from beyond the grave, summing up his life for me and its meaning. It was a spare, meticulous, and eloquent presentation which left me free to draw my own conclusions, as if being drawn into a give-and-take conversation.

I understood…

Laugh – Come ‘on Sourpuss, Laugh it Up to Your Health

The healing power of laughter
by The Dailey Sun~Chronicles

Laugh!

It is great for the mind, body, and spirit.

It may seem odd to find humor when facing a serious issue. Research with cancer patients have shown that laughter can help lift the spirit and connect with others.

 

Many benefits of laughter . . .

St. Augustine wrote “Serve the Lord with Laughter”

 

Humor heals the physical body, strengthens the spirits, and is great for mental health.

 

Laughter may help you feel better about yourself and the world around you. Laughing leads to physical changes in the body.

 

After laughing for just a few minutes, feeling better may last for hours.

 

Physiologically, laughing has multiple benefits:

 

1)    Enhances oxygen intake.

 

2)    Stimulates both the lungs and heart.

 

3)    Relaxes the muscles throughout the body.

 

4)    Triggers the release of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.

 

5)    Eases digestion by soothing the stomach muscles.

 

6)    Relieves pain.

 

7)    Balances blood pressure.

 

8)    Improves mental functions.

 

9)    Enhances alertness.

 

10)    Boosts creativity.

 

11)    Improves memory.

Italian Who Brings All Christians Together

by Robert Ellsburg

St. Pope John XXIII led efforts for ecumenicalism of all people.

On October 28, 1958, a new pope greeted the Church from the balcony overlooking St. Peter’s Square. There stood the smiling, rotund figure of Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli, the son of peasants and recently the patriarch of Venice. “I am called John,” he said.

In appearance, and in almost every other respect, Pope John XXIII stood in contrast with his gaunt and otherworldly predecessor, Pius XII. Gregarious and open, John exuded an enthusiasm for life that in itself set a positive tone for his pontificate and raised hopes for a season of change. These hopes were answered by the astonishing announcement that he intended to convene an ecumenical council, the first in almost a hundred years. He spoke of the need to “open the windows” of the Church and to let in fresh air. It was the signal of an extraordinary renewal, an era of openness and positive dialogue between the Church and the modern world.

On October 4, 1962, on the eve of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, Pope John made a rare trip outside of Rome to visit Assisi, to pray to the Blessed Mother and St. Francis for the success of the Council. It was a reminder of his deep Franciscan roots. As a young boy of fourteen, while enrolled in the junior seminary of Bergama, he was received as a Third Order Franciscan. “Oh! The serene and innocent joy of that coincidence,” he later said. “A Franciscan tertiary and cleric on his way to the priesthood, drawn in, therefore by the same cords of simplicity, still unconscious and happy, that was to accompany us up to the blessed altar that was later to give us everything in life.”

There were many steps along the way to the Chair of St. Peter: Apostolic Visitor to Bulgaria and then Turkey, nuncio to France, and later Patriarch of Venice. But Pope John always acknowledged his familial bonds with the followers of St. Francis. In 1959, just before his election as pope, he presided over a celebration marking the 750th anniversary of Pope Innocent III’s approval of the Franciscan Rule. At the end of his remarks, he said, “Beloved sons! Allow us to add a special word from the heart to all those here who belong to the peaceful army of the lay Tertiaries of St. Francis: I am your brother Joseph.” Having launched Vatican II, Pope John did not live to see it completed. Dying of cancer, he retained his humor and humility. “My bags are packed,” he said, “and I am ready to go.” From his deathbed he dictated a final message of hope for the Church he loved:

Now more than ever, certainly more than in past centuries, our intention is to serve people as such and not only Catholics; to defend above all and everywhere the rights of the human person and not only those of the Catholic Church; it is not the Gospel that changes; it is we who begin to understand it better…. The moment has arrived when we must recognize the signs of the times, seize the opportunity, and look far abroad.

Pope John XXIII died on June 3, 1963. In a few brief years he had won the hearts of the world, and his passing was universally mourned. He was canonized in April 2014.


In convening the Second Vatican Council, Saint John XXIII
showed an exquisite openness to the Holy Spirit.
He let himself be led and he was for the Church a
pastor, a servant-leader. This was his great service to
the Church; he was the pope of openness to the Holy Spirit.

Life Lessons from Uncle Dan and Aunt Holly:

Pentecost Sunday ’18                           Happy Birthday (#1975) to the Christian Church!

What we have heard (Uncle Dan would be #70 today!) and learned:

Dan and Holly. They had a “quiet classiness” that is rare to see these days.

One of Dan’s main points of advice was “don’t give people a reason to say no.” That also means not to deliberately bring negative attention to oneself.

I believe that it’s better to be lost in the crowd than to be remembered for the wrong reasons. I’ve found this important to remember when job searching and negotiating office politics.

I agree with Henderson Louis Dailey.
