De Colores! My husband, Ron and I attend St. John Vianney in Fairmont. He has recently taken over the Ultreya Rep position.
As I did my palanca notes for candidates and team, I felt drawn to do a special palanca for Ron. We had arranged that I would do his adoration hours from 8-10 PM on the Friday of the weekend. I have such great friends in Sonya Fujan and Mary Bretey that they felt they could help with the hours and I could just drive to Prior Lake earlier that night. Instead, I stayed and prayed a heart-felt rosary with them and we chatted eagerly about the upcoming weekend. They knew I was going to drive the two hours after adoration to spend the night in my car in St. Michael's parking lot. They were concerned that I would do that by myself. However, I knew God would watch over me and I would be close to Him!
No worries! I arrived at the Church at 12:30 AM and slept great! (LOL!) I was welcomed into the Palanca Chapel by the awesome team along with the Kayser's and Hufstedler's to pray over and for Ron during his talk. The Palanca Mass was wonderful as well! Such love!!! God's love!!! Praise God, who is deserving of all our love!
