I'm from Lake Charles, LA. Where's home for y'all in Louisiana? I've not been there since I was 8 but I'd love to go back again. BTW, thanks for stopping by, Marc

Hiya Chris,

Yes, I'd say that you do have reason. The place is HOLY GROUND. Serene, tranquil, and amazing.

If you do, I volunteer there on Tuesday afternoon. It'd be great to meet another Catholic blogger!

I'll keep that in mind. It will probably be a long time before I head that way, but it would be fun to check it out if I get a chance.

Take Care!

My wife's parents are Duplessis' and Thibodeauxs and they "came up" in New Orleans. Although now they live in a small town outside Houma (post - Katrina)called Independence. I lived in New Orleans for eight years. Most of the people we knew or worked with have been scattered hither and yon - but a nice thing that worked out was that our kids' godmother (she brought me back a rock from Assisi and a crucifix blessed by John Paul 2nd) wound up living right near her mom in Independence.

I hope to go back to Assisi someday. We were only there two nights last May and that was NOT long enough!
