Clay’s Corner Episode #11: The Pat Down

Would you ever choose a human pat down over an automated scan?

I did just that on my way home from Calgary…and the male screener wasn’t very impressed.

After a somewhat stressful travel experience trying to make my way back to Calgary from New Jersey (in which the airlines lost my luggage), it was nice to have a more light-hearted moment on my way home to Vancouver.

Showered With God’s Love: The Story of Joseph and Marion

On May 30, 2015, my dear friends Joseph and Marion got married and it was such a wonderful day:  the Mass at St. Paul’s was beautiful and the reception at All Saints was fun and full of love.  I was blessed to emcee the reception that evening, and as part of the program I presented the following story about Joseph and Marion:  their meeting, the courting period, their dating, and the proposal.

In the fall of 2011, the Catholic Church was preparing to embrace a new translation and new parts for the Mass. Little did Joseph and Marion know that God was preparing them to celebrate a big change via a sacrament as well…but 4 years down the road.
