The big news in the Church today is Pope Benedict XVI's second Encyclical Letter, Spe Salvi (On Christian Hope). His first Encyclical Letter, Deus Caritas Est, was signed on Christmas Day 2005. I haven't yet read today's letter, but I intend to do so tonight and I hope that many of you will also find the time to read the letter sent to us by our Holy Father.
As for life in Gaming, we were delighted to receive an unexpected package in the mail this afternoon from a dear former piano teacher. The German Grammar book looks to be exactly of the sort that I was missing. Thank you, Nancy!
