JEMAIL: Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1957) gives an Addis Hope update


Christmas, 2014

Dear John,

I hope this finds everything going well for you. You may be wondering
why you haven’t heard from me in a while; it’s because Ethiopian
telecommunications has been in the process of upgrading. As a result,
the network has been down for quite a while. I’m now racing before it
goes down again.

As we are an eastern rite Catholic Church our Christmas is January
seventh and our new year is September eleventh, following the Julian
calendar. No matter, we want to wish you a blessed Christmas and
joyous New Year.

All here at Addis Hope are doing very well thanks to the generosity of
our donor partners. During this Christmas season, I’m reminded that
many of our children live in terrible stable like conditions not too
unlike those of the Holy Family. Still, they are grateful for the
education they are receiving thanks to you. I had hoped to attach a
photo of the children expressing their joy and appreciation for all
they have received but it took almost ten minutes to download; thus
ended that wonderful show of gratitude.

Many thanks for your continuing generosity to our desperately poor and
marginalized children. Their daily prayers of thanks will continue to
be your reward.

May God bless and keep you,


Flynn, Bro. Gregory (MC1957)

POSITRACTION: A bald Cinderella



‘Wow, you look just like me!': Girl battling cancer meets bald Cinderella
Published December 11, 2014

2014 Dec 12 bald cinderella

*** begin quote ***

“She’s OK at the hospital. She’ll wear no hat at the hospital because other kids look just like her,” Harvey told ABC. “It’s more when she goes places where there are people that she knows, she gets more upset and she wants her hat on.”

Harvey wanted to do something special for her daughter— namely, to show her she wasn’t the only one who looks the way she does. So she contacted Gianna Nicole’s Heart of Hope, a group that works with families of children battling cancer. According to ABC, Heart of Hope was collaborating with photographer Alana Hubbard and Bella Princess, an event company that orchestrates princess-themed photo shoots and parties.

The organization created a surprise photo shoot for Isabella and Cinderella— a model dressed like a princess with a bald cap to help cast away Isabella’s insecurities.

Nice when folks doing something special.

Now I’d have been more impressed if the model was truly bald.

But, it’s a start.

“Bon courage a vous tous”

ENDNOTE: Vandalism is just stupid



‘Wild, Ugly’ Scream Alerted Nuns That Something Wasn’t Quite Right — and What They Discovered in a Church Garden Left Parishioners ‘Visibly Shaken’
Dec. 10, 2014 11:50am Billy Hallowell

*** begin quote ***

Authorities arrested two suspects Tuesday following acts of vandalism at a Chicago-area church over the weekend that left parishioners “visibly shaken.”

The heads of Mary and Joseph statues were lopped off in a church garden and a nativity scene was egged, according to a parish priest.

Describing the suspects as juveniles, Pastor Anthony Brankin St. Odilo Church in Berwyn, Illinois, told TheBlaze that they have been arrested and could be charged with misdemeanors in a “spiritual blow” that has shaken the congregation.

*** end quote ***

Merry Christmas!

And folks think that there isn’t an anti-religious result of the “Secular Progressive” Gooferment Skrules!


“Juvenile justice” means a slap on the wrist.

Time for “tough love”?
