I urge you to read the wonderful tribute to Father Carl Gracely by the Rev James Richardson which can be found on his own church blog Fiat Lux. It is a wonderful remembrance from a man whom Carl so obviously influenced from an early age.
We never know, do we, how a small act of kindness or a first impression well made can shape the lives of others. It is one of God’s greatest creations giving each of us the power to shape another life for the good and for good by our own deeds. And here before our eyes is proof to the pure and perfect gift of grace that flows from loving one another as Jesus loved the disciples.
DioBytes carried the word of Carl’s death in the edition posted today. A Eucharist will be said for Carl on Saturday, March 12th at 1pm at St. Timothy’s.
