On December 10, I received a phone call saying my brother-in-law, Cozz Regele, had died. He and my sister, Colleen, had been married for 59 years, raised 7 children and have 20 grandchildren. My mind rolled back many happy memories of Cozz; one tangible one was that he had given me his two Baltimore Catechisms from his grade school days at St. Mary Church, Metamora, Illinois.
Standing in the Dark with the Shepherds
By Sr. Ruth Ksycki, OSB
Have you ever experienced the total darkness when the electricity goes off in a storm? You stand in a moment of panic and grope about for candles or a flashlight. Then the questions come one after another: How will I fix food or do laundry? How will I open the garage door? Ohhh! No TV or radio!
