Congratulations to my “baby” cousin, Salvatore. He was ordained at St. Patrick’s Cathedral on Saturday, and celebrated his First Mass yesterday. I was very fortunate to receive one of his first blessings, an honor that I will treasure for the rest of my life.
A special thanks to blogger Deacon Greg Kandra, for posting a link to www.NYPriest.com, where I found a nice picture of Sal from his days at the seminary (he’s in Photo #11 of the Gallery). I stumbled upon Deacon Kandra’s blog today, and found it an interesting read that offers a unique perspective to the blog world. You can see it here: The Deacon’s Bench.
Better still, he’s a fellow Brooklynite. Yay Brooklyn!!
