It wasn't a soccer game or a football game or a even a concert of a popular artist that drew an estimated 50,000 faithful to the Rose Bowl on May 19. It wasn't a job fair or an exhibition of boats or cars that drew people from as far away as the Philippines to the 85-year-old stadium. The event was a simple and humble devotion to Mary and her rosary. Many were there to pray for their families. Many came with their parish families. Others were there to testify on how the rosary helped them achieve peace in times of cruel uncertainty.

Letters to the Editor Bush's Troop Buildup in Iraq Last week's address to the nation by President George W. Bush is his attempt at throwing a "Hail Mary" pass by sending 21,500 more troops to Iraq, in the hope that a miracle will occur and some kind of victory can be salvaged from the chaos that now exists in war torn Iraq. I doubt if anyone will catch this "Hail Mary" for a touchdown. The truth is no one knows what the outcome of such an escalation will be. In war you often experience unintended consequences.

Prior to Friday night?s game with St. Francis High, St. Paul football Coach Pete Gonzalez called it a playoff game. While it was only the Mission League regular-season finale, it had the feel of a postseason affair. Each squad was in dire need of a victory in order to extend its season. The loser would be sent packing. In what proved to be a chess match the entire way, St. Paul found the winning moves, as St. Francis was defeated, 7-3, at Friedman Field to conclude its campaign.

Simone was on the ropes. She had played soccer for six years and was ambivalent about making it seven. I was careful not to encourage her continuance; after years of schlepping her around to practices and weekend games I was saying my “Hail Mary’s.” I can be such a jerk! Kaitzer proclaims as though it were a dictum from the herald angels: “Simone, guess what?” When I heard that, I figured I was done and the thought of having a free weekend began to ebb away.

I was sitting with the family around the kitchen table trying my best to run interference on this crazy, fandangled idea about us going on a skiing trip. I'm thinking, maybe if I run the dishwasher the noise will squelch this nonsensical talk and we can then get on with our day. With ballet and Holy Communion classes, it's not like we don't have enough to do. Well, this skiing idea began to pick up momentum and even the din of the dishwasher could not quell the excitement of Sabine and Simone.
