Monday morning, Mark and I had some free time and decided to visit the Mountain Man Museum in Pinedale. I was quite surprised and impressed with this out-of-the-way museum. They have a very good book selection on the mountain man era and history. The displays are very well done, and quite informative. I highly recommend if you ever pass through Pinedale to pay a visit to this museum. It is time well spent.
From Pinedale we made our way to Green River. We were joined by priests from Rock Springs as well as Kemmerer for the evening’s Confirmation. I believe 33 received the sacrament Monday evening, including some from Rock Springs who were unable to make their earlier scheduled Mass due to weather.
Last night, Tuesday, we were in Fort Bridger for confirmation with the St. Helen community joined also by the St. Mary Magdalen community from Evanston. Twenty seven young people received Confirmation last night.
I thought today’s reading from the Morning Prayer spoke beautifully to the reality of how God is at work in and through us. Here is the selection from St. Paul to the Romans 6:8-11:
If we have died with Christ, we believe that we are also to live with him. We know that Christ, once raised from the dead, will never die again; death has no more power over him. His death was death to sin, once for all; his life was life for God. In the same way you must consider yourselves dead to sin but alive for God in Christ Jesus.
