“Teresa, It was my birthday this last Monday and I wanted to do something different to celebrate year 66 and starting year 67. So I wanted to thank people who influenced me in positive ways this last year and will continue to do so. Your show “Catholic Connections“ is something I look forward to not only for news and events but for your commentary. You put into words my feelings on topics and news and give voice to what I feel is right. So, thank you! Also, kudos for Andrew and his work in the production of your show. Thank you again and keep your “Italian” up.”
