Birthday in Babylon

I recently celebrated my natal birthday.

At Mass that day, during the bidding prayers, I prayed: "Please pray with me for my mother, who 53 years ago today gave birth to the ne'erdowell standing before you now."

Only a few people wished me a happy birthday thereafter, so I suspect they might not have been familiar with the term "ne'erdowell"....

Blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ

Pater Reverende:
After I was old enough to understand the love of a mother, I would take my own dear Irish mother out to a nice dinner, and give her a Thank you card on my own birthday. I'd tell her that, "After all, you did all the work that day so long ago."

Happy Birthday, (Belated)

Fr. R.S.
