A few clarifications about Saint Dominic Kouba

When I began the post about our newest Saint Dominic the date was September 5th, but when I finished it was well past midnight thus the date stamp on the blog reads September 6th.  There is a very important connection that must be made regarding the date he actually departed this world.  Saint Dominic Kouba joined the rest of the heavenly company on the morning of September 5th, 2013, the feast day of Blessed Teresa of Calcutta (Mother Teresa), to whom Dominic's mother has a devotion.  What kindness and mercy our Lord showed to Dominic's family to bring him home to himself on such an important date for the Kouba family!  Surely he was with Blessed Mother Teresa yesterday as they both celebrated their feast day!

Also, I have had several people assume this Dominic is our Dominic.  This is not our Dominic, but rather one of his most treasured friends.  They shared the same name and the same blessed simplicity and goodness however.  Saint Dominic Kouba has received his reward while our Dominic is still waiting in his most beautiful disobedient body here on earth with us.

Saint Dominic Kouba, pray for us!
