Thank you, Frank T. Wells of Center Harbor, NH...your timing is perfect!

From today's Gospel on the Feast of All Saints:

Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and utter every kind of evil against you (falsely) because of me.

Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in Heaven.

Matthew 5:11-12

From today's Boston Globe letters section:

So, the good reverend at St. Joseph's School in Wakefield has banned Harry Potter books because the themes of witchcraft and sorcery were inappropriate for a Catholic school (City & Region, Oct. 25). Really? How about transubstantiation, immaculate conception, virgin birth, walking on water, resurrection? Sounds a little Dumbledorish to me.

Pray for Mister Wells. (And rejoice and be glad!)
