Thank you

He'd said it before, but it really struck me this time.  I was visiting Gus, taking him communion.  And we prayed the confession and I absolved him.  His "amen" to the absolution was to look me in the eye and say:  "Thank you."  It made me smile.  It still makes me smile.  A dear saint of the Lord who loves and values the absolution and sees it for what it is.  Made my day.
