A few weeks ago we went back to San Antonio to go to Michaels dad's (pops') Deaconate Blessing Mass. It was to mark the official beginning of the candidacy of his Deaconate class.
It was incredible. Celebrated by the Bishop . . .
AND a couple of our most favorite priests, Fr. Jonathan. . .
And Father Jimmy . . .
We felt so proud to be there to witness the first official step to him saying "yes" to God's call.
Michael and I are so inspired by him and cannot wait to see where this journey takes him.
The Paweleks had a lovely celebration at their house afterwards which of course ended in a little girl dance party. Cora just LOVES Taylor and Ella. She was so excited to play with them.
Cora took a special liking to her great grandpa that day. It was one of the sweetest things I have ever witnessed. He was just sitting on the side watching all the fun, when out of nowhere, she grabbed his hand to get him to come dance with her. He got up and danced with her for a bit, which was absolutely adorable, then went back to his chair.
But Cora would not stop. She knew exactly who she wanted her dance partner to be and wouldn't settle for anyone else.
