Tuesday y except celebrated birthdays time. Once each set aside the lunch period for those whose bir- thdays occur in that month. On Tuesday, we honored Mrs. Catherine Marks and Sister Cecilia Ann Moix. After lunch, I enjoyed a golf game at Rebsamen Park with David James and his father who was visiting from Indianapolis. Wednesday began early in the morning following Mass at Coachman's Inn. Assembled with me for breakfast were other religious leaders of Arkansas along with our Deacons Tim Massanelli and Buddy King. The subject of the meeting was the death penalty in our State. Ways were sought to educate our people in the State to a realization of the value of human life.

On Wednesday, we also celebrated National Secretaries Week. A won- derful luncheon was provided outdoors, tasty hamburgers and hotdogs. It was the company that made the difference. We welcomed the opportunity publicly to ex- press our thanks to those who serve the Church of Arkansas in the important role of secretary. I take this op- portunity publicly to express my thanks to Mrs. Charles (Martha) McNeil who serves as my secretary. In- telligently, generously and joyfully, she keeps things going through the typewriter, the telephone and the written word. ALMOST ALL of Thursday was consumed in a Clergy Personnel Meeting. Associated with me are priests freely chosen by their peers in the placement of our priests throughout the diocese. I am grateful to them for their help and their wisdom. In the evening, I participated in a joint meeting between represen- tatives of the Guardian staff, the Guardian Board and our Editorial Advisory Board. In a spirit of harmony, ,re work together to try to find ways to improve the weekly issues of our diocesan newspaper. On Friday, I traveled to Subiaco with Mr. Norman Schmuck for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Among the students there are always a few converts. There are likewise a number of students who have missed Con- firmation in their parishes in earlier years. The Monastery is filled with peace and joy. It was an honor to be associated with Father Benno, Father Hugh, Father Jerome and the students. In the late af- ternoon, we returned to Little Rock. In the evening, I welcomed the opportunity to visit Monsignor McKee, beloved Pastor of the Church of Our Lady of the Assump- tion in Atkins and charged with the care of St. Joseph's, Center Ridge. He underwent surgery earlier in the week and we are glad to report that he is on the mend. It is not likely that anyone is more loved by his people than this good priest. Please pray for his complete recovery. I then visited Mrs. Carl Zajac at Memorial Hospital in North Little Rock. She too has had surgery and is in need of our prayers. ON SATURDAY, I worked on homilies for special oc- casions in the month of May and June. I was glad to call on Gary Rolf who is sick at home right now. In the late af- ternoon, I traveled to Pine Bluff to participate in the Mass, the Banquet for the State Convention of the Knights of Columbus. This is home surrounded by her children. May she soon recover her health and may all those who lost their life in the accident rest in peace. I really enjoyed the supper. Brenda cooked it. She married Tim Nabholz last year. Tim was there. Brenda's brothers, Joe, Dennis, Scott were there. Mrs. Rappold was at the table too. It was a happy family re- union but we did miss Paul, devoted husband and father. the Centennial Year for the Knights. Throughout the State of Arkansas, the Knights and their families are strongly linked to our Church especially on the parish and diocese levels. This link is also visible on the part of the entire organization in its efforts to serve the Church of the United States and the Church Universal. Gladly I welcome the opportunity to spend an evening with them. On Sunday, I traveled to St. Augustine's in North Little Rock for Confirmation at 12 noon. Father Aureli, Sister Theresa and the parish leadership gave me a warm and cordial welcome. After a very moving liturgy, we enjoyed a potluck luncheon. In the afternoon, I drove to Conway to visit Mrs. Jo Ann Rappold. After three months in the hospital following a serious automobile accident in which her husband died, Jo Ann is now at home.
