  • Catholic Daughter's Tea
    EUGENE — Catholic Daughters of the Americas, Court Oregon #118 had their sixth annual high tea, “Tiaras, Fascinators and Hat’s off to the Queen,” Oct. 28. The event at St. Mary Parish in Eugene drew 168 including Frs. Ron Nelson, Edgar Rivera and Bryce McProud, Fr. Ken Olsen and his mother Anne, and Irene Duda, state regent of the Catholic Daughters.

    When we die and stand before the Pearly Gates, St. Peter is not going to ask to see our papers. Instead, as people of faith we are called to see Christ in every one we meet and, as our brothers’ and sisters’ keeper, we lovingly meet their needs. How we loved our neighbors will be the question St. Peter asks.

    There is a poem that I came across that is a little depressing to me. It is called “The Indispensable Man.” Part of the poem reads this way:

    “Take a bucket and fill it with water,

    Put your hand in it up to the wrist,

    Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining,

    Is a measure of how much you’ll be missed.”

    I personally believe this is a very cynical and pessimistic view of our time in this world. I would like to believe that the time we spend in this world has a greater impact on the lives of those we touch.
