Thanks, Mom!

The banana bread you sent was greatly appreciated, and as expected the guys here made quick work of it. (Incidentally, I also enjoyed the copy of O Jornal that Boo sent in the same box.) We're also still working through numerous goodies that Mrs. Marquard left on a recent visit - including some awesome cheesecake - so despite being in a penitential season we're doing quite well in the dessert department. Living in a community of nineteen novices (thirteen of them in residence this month, the secundi being off on Long Experiment) is almost like having nineteen moms, inasmuch as we receive shipments of baked goods and other assorted treats with welcome regularity. Even if the 'Jesuit Mothers Club' is a thing of the past, we at Loyola House still appreciate the thoughtfulness of the mothers and other family members who send us brownies, cakes, cookies, pies and the like. If nothing else, I hope this post serves as an adequate expression of our (and particularly my) heartfelt gratitude. AMDG.

You are more than welcome, and I'm glad you're getting a good supply of goodies from the various moms. We enjoyed seeing you all last month, and having the opportunity to get to know some of your Jesuit brothers a little better-a really great group of guys!
