It's Caturday Again, and Sula Is Back with Post-Christmas 2020 Memories and Pictures
(Sula, reminiscing, in her own pew, donated by parishioners in her honor.)
So, how is Christmas 2020 going? You might ask Sula, beloved parish cat at Old Mission San Juan Bautista and MSI Press author, considering that she wrote a book a few years ago--a popular one really--called Christmas at the Mission.
Different this year, she may tell you because her cancer returned in the form of a tumor but with some very skilled veterinarian care her very bad prognosis turned around and the tumor is disappearing. At the same time this is all too familiar.
Because of covid, her "home" being closed from lock-down many times, and her cancer, Sula retired in December. (Please pray for her cancer to disappear entirely.) She now lives with parishioners and gets to interact with a retired priest from the Mission who lives nearby, so it feels like home.
But she does work on Sundays, and she participated in all the normal activities--if anything could be considered normal this year. She helped light the Advent candles at the gift shop. You can see more pictures and tales of her Sunday activities HERE.
Christmas goes on for 12 days, you know. You can read about the 12 Days of Christmas in Sula's book HERE.
