You know, this “Pr0n” thing can certainly take on a life of its own.
Witness the motorcycle pr0n I captured yesterday at our church’s annual Padre’s Run – which raises money for our warriors. This year the funds will go to the Fidelco Guide Dog program that provides dogs to our wounded warriors.
Nearly 100 motorcycles with an estimated 150 riders came to our beautiful country church yesterday morning for a blessing and then – the ride! They all take off at the same time – rolling thunder indeed.
They travel 25 miles to a pub on the shoreline where they ordered appetizers and a few drinks – all provided by the venue free of charge. Then back to the church for a sumptuous BBQ celebration with a live band.
All of it the baby of our blessed priest, Fr. Michael. As a Harley-rider himself he conceived of this Run and he is the leader in every respect. From the prayers after Mass and the physical blessing of the bikes to finally leading the pack out of the parking lot – he gives himself fully to this event, as he does with everything he touches.
Fr. Michael aka Padre is definitely NOT your grandmother’s Catholic Priest.
