how I will deal with Father's Day on Sunday. I already feel a tremendous sadness since my father passed away two week ago on Friday. There is a little spot in my backyard that I always spruce up every summer. This year I decided that I'll do something to honor my Dad. I was thinking just the other day that when my mother was pregnant with my brother and was was in labor for a long time, my father, who was not Catholic (my mom was though), asked Saint Martin de Porres to intercede before God to help my Mom give birth. I think I'll try to get a statue of Saint Martin de Porres or an angel and plant some flowers around it.
