April 28, Divine Mercy Sunday.
"A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014."
Afon: a sort of moving portrait, on the playground.
I was sick from Tuesday onward this week, so these pictures are from Monday. Nothing new since then. We've been taking him out for long walks each day to get him tired and have noticed a profound difference in how long it takes to get him to fall asleep. He still stirs easily in his sleep, though.
We had a beautiful walk home from Mass in Colwyn Bay today along the seashore. But Afon tired quickly and kept intercepting me as I walked, pulling me by the arm where we held hands and nearly tripping me: "Hold me!" Silly boy!
Today, on Divine Mercy Sunday, Pope John Paul II was canonized Saint John Paul the Great. The Catholic blogosphere is abuzz with celebration, and many of them have stories of how the saint touched their lives personally, whether in person or from a distance. If you're not Catholic, did you know that JPII was canonized today? What do you think, or did you think when you heard the news? What is your fondest memory of this well-loved pope?
Pasg hapus, everyone!
