This morning at Holy Mass for First Saturday, Saint Mary's Assumption was graced with the presence of seven seminarians from Saint Thomas Aquinas Seminary in Winona, MN, among whom was our very own nephew. Seven future priests! (Click images to enlarge)

And on top of that, our boys served!

Deo Gratias!

Up the raging Mississip
And at the St. Paul’s source
South, below the ragged cliffs
There is a fiercer force.

A force which surges
Human blood between her banks each June
Then tears and rents herself for all
She is…Winona’s womb!

And like the raging Mississip
Her channels open wide
And birth the men who are the priests
The source of Mother’s pride.

And from that raging Mississip
And at that St. Paul’s source
South below the ragged cliffs
Push priests from land of Norse.

Who ride the river far and wide
For souls from shore to shore
And bring them home to Mother’s side
To leave Her never more.

And up where current’s all the rage
And sin is sorrow’s source
Still south, below the ragged cliffs
