Let us remember that we are in the holy presence of God.
Jesus, someone I’ll meet today is lonely and afraid. Give me your words to bring them comfort, courage, and calm. Amen.
Saint John Baptist de La Salle...pray for us. Live Jesus in our hearts...forever!

The play tells the story of the Sycamores and the Kirbys. At first the Sycamores seem mad, but it is not long before we realize that if they are mad, the rest of the world is madder. In contrast to these delightful people are the unhappy Kirbys. Tony Kirby, falls in love with Alice Sycamore and brings his parents to dine at the Sycamore home on the wrong evening.
