Yesterday I arrived outside Kansas City Missouri at the house of Dino and Cathy Durando. Dino works for Bishop Finn as director of the department of Family Life. He came to support Bishop Finn in maintaining catholic culture. Pray for Bishop Finn because since he has told “The National “Catholic” Reporter to take “Catholic” out of their name, he has been targeted to be “removed” from office as bishop. The local paper is pushing for that too.
The Durandos have 8 children and one more on the way. Here are 6 of them.Perfectly behaving children.
What a joy to arrive and be greeted with love. Dino was the director of Religious Ed at St. Joseph’s in Modesto California before moving here to Missouri. They say they live in a bit of heaven here. They are like many large traditional families we have met who are leaving California or other Metropolitan areas to be on farms and home school. Grandma Durango lives with them too.
They have 2 baby goats and 3 cows. They also have a lot of cats. These animals are not “their children“. They are here to give milk and catch mice and gofers.
Tomorrow I will say the Holy Latin Mass for the workers at the chancery and then have an appointment with Bishop Finn.
