    Think of the abundance of prayers Elvis most likely received throughout his life and in his death from Mother Dolores and the other sisters in her order. That alone is awesome! Imagine how many lives were changed because she chose to become a sister. Their lives were changed because of her prayers!

    Do you ever think of that in your life, Father? Do you ever think about the countless lives that have been changed because you chose to become a priest? What an awesome thought!

    That’s what I have been thinking about since I watched the video earlier today.



    PS You can count 5 for the Lacey family!
