It's probably a bit of both. But the only thing we can effect now is how we nurture our faith.

On new year's eve Fr. Brian Hess asked me what we are doing with the basement of the rectory. "Nothing," I said. To which he suggested that we should use it to host young adult events and the like. I took his admonition and ran. So Saturday evening was the debut of St. Joe's Pool Hall.
For a while now I've been looking for a second horse. Not knowing if I should, or even what I'd get, I just left it in the hands of God. That desire was fulfilled two weeks ago when we went down to see Riley. At the end of our ranch tour he showed me a colt with my name on it. After a bit of thought and prayer, and by God's grace and Riley's generosity, she's now part of the WCC herd.

Deep down there's a cowboy in all of us. The purpose of Wyoming Catholic Cowboys is to help us discover it. The path to this freedom is raw and real. Eli Guinn came on board this fall to help us with the last few cows and find this hidden treasure. He's all in.

Kurt called the other day and said he had found an ambulance in Rapid that he wanted to buy. Being the proud owner of a school bus, I knew this was something I wanted to be part of. So hit the trail we did, and what a gem we found.

One of the perks of the priesthood is pastoral visits. Those are all the more exciting when they lead you into the mountains. This time it was northeast of Hulett in Black Hills. So like any Wyoming Catholic Cowboy priest would do, I flew in.
