Olympic Champion

Hi Friend!
In the 2012 London Olympics
Meseret Defar after crossing the finish line
to win the women's 5,000 meters Gold Medal
suddenly displayed for all to see
a picture of Mary and the Infant
which she carried with her in the race.

What a combination of faith and humility!
That's it! Faith and humility:
the two legs by which we walk
in the light and to the Light, Our Father.

Have a great day!
Father Peter
