Mom code: we take care of each other. And when this mom's son was ordained and planned to celebrate his first Mass the next day, you BET I was there to help.
At the end of Mass, Fr. Thomas explained one of the beautiful traditions of the ordination, the Maniturgium...Let me just say, there was not a dry eye in the church...even on Fr. Thomas...And Mom came to rescue to comfort her son...because that's what Moms do.
Thank you M family, for trusting me to capture such a momentous occasion. It is such an honor. Thank you for praying for me Fr. Thomas...And thank God for your ministry!
