Hmmm...well, I guess I better bring other petitions here.
Sometime this afternoon, our son, the one whose pack was stolen, just "happened" to find it lying on the floor of our very busy "Commons" building, several buildings over from where it was stolen.
Inside was his check book and his passport. I don't yet know what is missing, but at least those are still there, thanks be to God!
As soon as I see him, I am going to coerce him into publicly thanking you people, God, St. Joseph, St. Jude, and St. Philomena, and his guardian angel, amongst others.
I might add that neither my dear Wife nor I believe in "coincidences". They simply do not exist.
Thank you all! You are all in my prayers every day.
