POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 13, 2014 Page5 A Frank De Pasc uale Venture Due to his increasing popularity and several suggestions from readers (and after much negotiating on our part with his huge salary demands), our friend Freeway has consented to try to answer readers' questions concerning him or any of our little four-legged friends. You can email your questions to to the attention of Freeway. Don't forget folks, Freeway is not a vet, so please keep the questions light-hearted! Thanks. Writing an article I some- times try to find a subject that I feel will interest my pooch friends as well as their human companions. I can talk about my adventures: my days spent down at the Greenway seeing all my pooch friends, but now I need to write something different. This subject involves every- thing that I feel is impor- tant. How often do we pick up the phone to say "hello" to a friend? Not a friend you see everyday, someone that you feel needs to hear a kind voice with kind words. When do we take time out to visit someone, a neighbor, a house-bound person or even someone in a nursing home? Do we take out the time to prepare a meal for someone that we feel can't cook for themselves? When I walk into a hospital I see all these people either visiting or going for check-ups for themselves. When do we take out time to CARE? Life is so precious, at least I feel that way and most of the time we take it for granted. Do we ever take out time to visit family or call or even send them a card to let them know we are think- ing of them and that we want them to know we love them? Being around the area all I hear is that so many individuals have prob- lems or that someone is very ill. When do we take time to do what is necessary in our lives to make some- one happy? Take time to "CARE." Life is not 0nly important to you but also to others. Take one minute to make a call; take one minute to send a card just to say I'm thinking of you today and most importantly take one minute to think of ALL our men and women that are fighting for' us every single day to keep us safe. Never look back with regret to what you should have done, and didn't do and what you could have done and never did. Caring is a won- derful thought. By the way don't forget St. Anthony -- his birthday is June 13th. Life can be better, it's up to you. That's all for now!!

Donato Fraffaroli k, donato @ be, the NEMPAC Opera Project has sought to use exclusively non-traditional spaces. In our first year, we took the provocative work of Bizet's Carmen to St. Paul's Cathedral in downtown Bos- ton, and also provided a com- munity outreach perfor- mance at Christopher Co- lumbus Waterfront Park. Last year, we performed Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte in Boston's Faneuil Hall. The production was so success- ful that we have chosen to return again to Faneuil Hall with our 2014 production, D/e Fledermaus. Want to support the NEMPAC Opera Project for the 2014 production of Die Fledelmaus? Have an ad that you want viewed by the over 350 people annually that view our opera programs?

He then journeyed to Assisi to attend a general chapter that was to begin on May 30th where he went entirely unnoticed. It was at Forli, where Anthony was asked to speak to his brethren gathered for an ordination, that his powers of oratory and knowledge of Holy Scripture were nor_ ticed. It was at that moment that Anthony's public minis- try began. Saint Francis, informed of his learning directed him to teach theol- ogy to the brethren which he taught successively at Bolo- gna, Toulouse, Montpellier and Padua. It was as an orator, how- ever, rather than as pro- fessor, that Anthony made his greatest impression. He possessed abundantly all the good qualities that charac- terize an eloquent preacher: a loud and clear voice, a winning countenance, won- derful memory, and profound learning. So numerous were those who flocked to hear him that no church could house them and he was often forced to preach in the open air. At the end of Lent, 1231, Anthony retired to Campo- sanpiero, near Padua, where, after a short time he was taken with a severe illness. Transferred to Vercelli, and strengthened by the appari- tion of Our Lord, he died at the age of thirty-six years of age, June 13, 1231. During his lifetime he was held in high esteem with miracles attributed to him. Saint Anthony was canon- ized less than one year after his death. He is especially invoked for the recovery of things lost. He is a Doctor of the Church and Patron of the Poor. The Post-Gazette is now on the Web?
