Merry Christmas, Catie, to you and your family! While at Mass today, I thought of you receiving your First Holy Communion, and a great big smile appeared on my face. I said a prayer for you right then and there. What an extra-special Christmas this is for you today! Enjoy the time with your relatives. I'll see you soon. Love, Mrs. Earnest

Hi Catie, We hope you had a wonderful, blessed Christmas. We sure were thinking of you and praying for you as you received your 1st Communion! We also hope you enjoyed the celebration of your Poppy's 80th birthday! What a week for you! As promised, we will send you photos of the Love Light tree at St. Columbkill. Of course there's a story behind this and I know it will make you chuckle. We told you a bit about this before, but here's the quick recap. We were supposed to cut the tree down from our yard on Friday, 12/19 but we had an ice we didn't get to do so till the next day, then we let it sit in our garage over night till it was time to decorate the church on Sunday. The tree was 16.5 feet tall and took 6 guys to handle when we got there. While 1/2 the tree had thawed and dried out, the other 1/2 was still very wet. The guys were soaked by the time we had it standing, as if they were out in the rain themselves! We had fans in the narthex and had mop duty for quite some time (almost 2 hours) until the tree dried enough to put lights on it. Then we added the ~150 paper doves. As promised, we put the dove labeled "Catie O'Brien and Family" as high up as we could. Beautiful!!! We left with a great deal of pride in a job well done and were very excited about the grand unveiling to our church congregation on Christmas Eve. We arrived early and anxiously approached the narthex. My heart sank. The tree was not lit. WHAT? I asked Fr. Quinn who the Patron Saint of Unlit Christmas Trees was and he just chuckled. He told us that it was lit as late as 2:00 that afternoon and they didn't know what happened. This bothered me all through Mass, needless to say. First of all, it's called the Love Light tree and I was thinking we'd have to refund half the donations made as now it was really only a "Love Tree", since there were no lights!!! Friends of ours who had helped us with the tree and had accompanied us to Mass were about as disappointed as we were. They recently retired from owning a Hardware Store andI knew if anyone could fix this, it would be them. After Mass, they jiggled wires, changed fuses and extension cords, trying every possible combination. It took quite some time, but eventually they came up with the winning combination and the tree was lit again. We all cheered LOUDLY!!! Of course no one really heard us as Mass was over for at least 1/2 hour and everyone had gone home. But we were ecstatic and with any luck at all, it remained lit for the 11:00 Mass that night as well as the two masses on Christmas Morning!! What a time! But a happy ending for sure. We continue to pray for a happy ending to your story also, as we join you all in prayer for a miracle. Lots of love and hugs, Candee and family

Hi Catie. Congratulations on receiving your first Holy Communion. We lit two candles after mass today - one for you and one for your family. We miss you a lot. I really liked being able to see you before Christmas! Love, Audra and Mrs. White

I know your first Holly Communion was very beautiful and memoriable. It sure brought back memories. I also remember being very nervous and excited. Thank you for giving me that memory. I pray for you all everyday and for our gracious loving God to place many miracles of healing for Cathie and her family.

I just absolutely love these O'Brien and the GODincidence stories! So glad you made it back home safe and sound in time for your Second Holy Communion Catie. Cannot wait to see all of your pictures! We continue to pray for all of you. God bless you! Last night I went to see the movie Bedtime Stories - I took three of my four special Ronco family children - Luke (, Alexis, and Isabella - afterward we came back to our home and roasted hot dogs over the fireplace in the livingroom! : ) And then we made S'mores! They wanted to have a sleepover, but I had to work today, so I told them that I'll plan to send their mommy and daddy on a honeymoon one night and they can all come over for a sleepover. I know they won't let me forget! I was so glad to have the opportunity for this outing as Michele left for Boston and Meghan left for DC - and our home was awfully quiet after a very nice Christmas together. I hope you all have a beautiful evening! Thanks so much for the update Kevin. God bless you all. love, sylvia xoxo

Congratulations on your First Holy Communion, Catie. I know you were very beautiful in your special communion dress, and you have made God very happy that you have accepted communion with Him. You and your parents continue to amaze all of us and every member of my family has asked about all of you while we were visiting them in Ohio over Christmas. I told them all to watch for your St. Jude TV commercial which we have seen several times. They knew exactly which one was you in the commercial! Happy New Years Blessings to you all! Ellen Skinner and family ;)

Dear Catie, I am 5 years old and you know my Aunt Marissa and cousins Cole and Alessandra. I think you are so lucky to see Lourdes with your family. I would like to go to Lourdes some day too. Also, I loved the picture on your website with the Red Sox hat, especially since it makes my daddy CRAZY since he likes the Yankees. I don't like the Yankees! I loved the picture with Santa, too! I love him so much. I think you are my good friend. Love Isabella.
