A mission back in 1981
Hi, here are some artifacts referring to a mission which Grandma had entrusted both Helene and myself with back in 1981: to take care of her friend priest Father Romuald as he went through Paris on his way to Rome:
Here's the photo I was sent in order to identify the gentleman:
And this is Grandma's letter of thanks:
I have to say I don't recall receiving any books from Kathleen O'Rawe - I wonder Grandma refers to?!
And here's my letter referring to the event!
On this side she mentions her sister's place in the North: this gives me an idea for another post.
Referring to Father Romuald, I had forgotten that on the occasion of our wedding party in November 1985, he had sent us a limerick, which I am reproducing below. First the card itself:
(it is a detail of the mozaic of the apse in Maria Maggiore basilica in Rome)
then the limerick itself, written at the back of the card:
In fact, Frédérique and I had had a try at a first limerick, inviting our guests at the party - I have forgotten it (it started in the same way, I think, "there was a young couple from France"), but Father Romuald answered us in his own way, indicating that he couldn't come.
