They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, that the best way to begin to understand someone is by meeting their parents and seeing where they come from. Like it or not, we often take the traits of our parents, including their values, sense of humor, subtle mannerisms, and annoying ticks.
Ladies and gentlemen… my parents.
While home on vacation last week, I had the wonderful opportunity to sit down with my parents and ask them fan-inspired questions in this week’s video. Ranging from vocations to what I was like as a child, my parents don’t hold back in their answers, sharing their joy, their support for me, and just enough personality to reveal the proverbial tree from which I fell. In my case, I didn’t fall far, and I’m okay with that.
I really enjoyed the video. fr.Jack Lydon,
What a great video. So often we know so little about one’s background and family. Christmas is the time for family and thank you for sharing your wonderful parents with us all. It was great. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !
Wonderful! Lovely and loving parents…helps remind us that Friars are ordinary folks called to serve in an extra-ordinary way. Wishing you and your family a happy, healthy New Year full of God’s grace and blessings.
