with very short notice, hubby and i rushed to st. patrick church in st. charles for 11:30am holy mass. his eminence, luis cardinal tagle, archbishop of manila, was the presider con-celebrated by several filipino clergy. radley, seminarian at mundelein, served as mc .
the cardinal exudes warmth that somehow envelops you, perhaps a holy glow. he strikes me as one of great humilty. he sounded very pastoral with genuine love. he greeted the faithful after mass followed by fellowship hosted by the fox valley filipino community. the young-looking prelate was happy to chat and seemed to not mind being swarmed by photo ops and selfies.
thank you marta for this wonderful and rare opportunity.
