After the Mass, we enjoyed lunch with Mother Mary John, the sisters and their guests. We then drove back to Little Rock in the late afternoon. Tuesday was devoted to work in the office. After supper, Leo and Mary Hiegel and I drove to St. Joseph's Church in Pine Bluff to offer the rosary for Monsignor Joseph A. Gallagher. The church was full. People do remember and they do return to give thanks. After the rosary, we returned to Little Rock and found a scoop of ice cream before the night was over. ON WEDNESDAY, at times I felt like a "very important person" and at other times, I felt like a "basketball" being passed around the court. At 9:00 in the morning, Leo Hiegel and Pinky Schmuck came to my home. Pinky took my automobile, picked up Father Frank Malone and drove to Bella Vista in the Northwest part of the State. Leo drove me in his automobile to Pine Bluff. A beautiful gathering of priests assembled at St. Joseph's. The church was again filled. The music and the hymns were most suitable for Monsignor Gallagher, featuring the Blessed Mother Philadelphia for the occasion. He is now more than 92 years old. Many relatives and friends came both from Philadelphia and from other parts of the State where Father Malone has faithfully served the people. The choir lifted us up to the heavens. The people joyfully responded throughout the blessing and we hope that the Lord's joyful spirit will rest upon the building and the community of St. Bernard for years to come. After the blessing, we enjoyed cookies and punch in thesocial hall. This hall is an integral part of the building because of the way in which the land is shaped. Later in the evening, we enjoyed a sitdown supper at the Bella Vista Club. The remarkable Mr. Francis Malone, 93 years young, gave us a wonderful talk. On that happy occasion, I was presented with two "snow people." One of them is obviously a bishop because he is wearing a hat with a cross on the top. The parishioners also gave me a golden putter properly inscribed April 14, 1982. and St. Joseph. Father John THE NEXT morning, Mr. O'Donnell gave us a magnificent homily touching Ted Loveland and Mr. Jim every aspect of the life and Twombley took Norman Schmuck and me to the Bella Vista Golf Course for eighteen holes. Intermittently, it rained but we did not notice it because we believe the tradition, "It never rains on a golf course." The golden putter worked like magic. Before the game was over, the sun was shining brightly. As we left Bella Vista with many happy memories, we greeted Father Bernard Malone again and thanked him for his outstanding pastoral zeal and loving care of his people. In the late afternoon, we drove to St. Thomas Parish on the campus at Fayetteville. Father Joe Pallo, Sister Mac- rina, Deacon Don Althoff, Dr. Paul Cronan had arranged an evening for us. We offered Mass for the students in the courtyard of the parish. Then we enjoyed a hamburger supper. This was followed by a dialogue and discussion between me and priesthood of this noble man of God. After the funeral, Leo Hiegel drove me to the Pine Bluff Airport where Bill Canino was waiting. He had flown from Little Rock. We took off at 12:45 and arrived at Bentonville at 2:00. Pinky Schmuck and Mr. Joseph Malone were there to pick me up. Pinky had already delivered Father Frank Malone to the church so that he could prepare for the blessing. At 3:00, my eyes fell upon the beautiful new Parish Facility of St. Bernard in Bella Vista. The joy of that occasion filled the hearts of everyone who participated. Again all of the priests from the Northwestern part of the State were present. Father Bolds came from the Nor- theastern part because he wanted to see the first church in our diocese named after his patron, "St. Bernard." Mr. Francis Malone, father to the pastor had come from the students. It was a most Diocesan Radio Ministry Gets Aid Chicago -- The Catholic stations across the state.

The young people are filled with enthusiasm and with joyful love of the Church. ON FRIDAY morning, we arose and went to St. Joseph's Church where Father Maus was on hand to greet us. We offered the 8:00 Mass in the presence of the school children and parishioners. The Mass was offered for David Connell who recently died. His parents were present along with relatives and friends. We enjoyed a good breakfast in the Connell home and tried as best we could to offer the bereaved our sympathy and our prayers. During the day, we drove to Little Rock. Saturday was a day of comparative leisure. In the chancery, I visited with Susan Wrobleski and her finance Randy Kuehner. I will per- beautiflfl day in our lives. Before we left Hot Springs, the McNeils, the Finches from El Dorado and we went to McClard's for a barbecue supper. On the way back to Little Rock, we "desserted" at Baskin Robbins.

Then Norman Schmuck, Mary and Leo Hiegel and I traveled to Magic Springs at Hot Springs for the Diocesan Family Picnic. The weather was peHect. I praised God for this mar- velous opportunity to have recreation with the families of our diocese. More than twelve hundred people were present. The children enjoyed the rides and parents enjoyed visiting with one another. At 4:00 in the afternoon, we assembled SUNDAY WAS a memorable day in the life of the diocese. At 11:00 in the morning, I went to St. Vin- cent's Infirmary to celebrate the Golden Jubilees of Sister Teresa Joseph Babcock and Sister Margaret Hayden. The ministry to the sick touches the lives of many people. St. Vincent's stands in the middle of central Arkansas and reaches out into all parts of the State. Not only does the Infirmary offer excellent medical care, but the total hospital atmosphere is flavored with the love, the mercy, the compassion of Jesus Himself. Throughout their long years of service, Sister Teresa Joseph and Sister Margaret have tried to imitate the Lord in care of the sick and the members of their families. Following the Mass in the hospital chapel, we enjoyed a luncheon with the sisters, relatives and friends. In the afternoon, along with Mary and Leo Hiegel, I visited Mountain View. I had never been to this folk cultural center. We enjoyed the arts and the crafts on display. In the evening, I went to the on Pleasant Valley Drive to participate in their Centennial Celebration. The invitation asked visitors to wear the robes that are used for festive occasions. I wore the red robes of a bishop. It goes without saying that I was "outstanding." (Smile) May that congregation continue to grow in love for the Lord Jesus. Together with them, may we work for the honor and glory of God and the spread of the Good News of the gift of His Son Our Lord. Your friend,. Andrew J.
