The Smile of God...

Sandy Barry, our Director of Annual Giving, has been out on leave as she and her husband Craig have been welcoming their newborn son. Dillon Barry was the center of everyone's attention as Sandy brought the newest member of the Saint John's community for lunch during this past week. His presence reminded me of Pope Benedict XVI's homily at a Baptism he celebrated in 2008: "Each child born," said the Holy Father, "brings to us the smile of God and invites us to recognize that life is His gift, a gift that must be accepted with love and protected with care, always and at all times." (Pope Benedict XVI, January 8, 2008)
