He is tired but in good health and spirits, and we are relieved that he tested "negative" for the coronavirus. Please understand that Father Joseph will be resting in his room for the next week or two, but truly misses you and remembers you in his prayers. Thank you for remembering him in your prayers as well, especially this Thursday when he turns 86 years old ("Sto Lat!").
