29th October 2016 was also Deepavali, the festival of lights. Praise God for the flowers which were so lovely, and they were placed in the hotel lobby of One Farrer Hotel and Spa where we had not only our thanksgiving dinner but also an auction. The painting here is of Mother Mary, and it was snapped up at a love offering of almost ten thousand dollars. The painter took much care to see that the oil painting was done almost to perfection!
A wonderful performance by four youths who called themselves PTL.
Guess what PTL stands for. . . . Praise the Lord!
And then you see Fr Cornelius carrying out the auction like a professional . . . gifted and talented, for sure! What a sacrifice he made!
