    Talking Greetings to all the Jakes out there

    Greetings to all my firefighting friends and neighbors. I am a Catholic Contemplative Monk from Venice, Florida and have been a huge supporter of the members of the Fire Services in every city I've ever lived in these past 43 years.
    That support doesn't stop now that I am a monk! In fact, now I pray more often and more earnestly for all of you. Please feel free to email me and let me know what you need in that department ! Also please visit our website.
    As always, stay safe out there and remember: you are NEVER alone!!
    God Bless you all and come home again. Someone there is counting on you too !

    Cool Hi Brother

    Hello and Welcome.

    We can alway use another friend in our corner.
    I appreciate you concern for us, and a little prayer
    now an then could not hurt.

    Something to think about for you, if you are interested
    you could stop by you local dept and see if they could use
    a chaplin. We have a Catholic Priest from the local Catholic school
    as ours. Just food for thought.

    Again Brother Mark Welcome to our forums

    Wink HEllO and thank you DFD

    THank you for your email..I tried to reply but couldnt so I'll post my answer here. I cannot be a fire chaplain since I am in a monastery and can't visit the local firehouses very much if at all. I have sent St Florian medals to the men and of course are praying for them as well as much as I pray for anyone here who asks for it.
    What part of NJ are you from? I was in Bayonne for many years!

    Lightbulb Hi Brother

    Oops. I didn't realize that you were in a monestary.

    I am from a little town called Demarest its about
    30 miles north of Bayonne. I grew up in Fort Lee though
    and my family comes for Union City. Not to far away.
    My grandparents live in West Palm Beach and I get down
    your way every once in while. I'm not a hot weather
    person.

    Well got to go, I work the morning shift and have to get
    up a 1 am to go to work.

    Take care and talk to you soon

    Talking Be safe out there Joe!

    Its always good to hear from a fellow Joisey man! I've heard of Demarest and have friends on the Police Dept in Union City. You just can't escape Joisey I'm afraid. No matter where I go I run into old homies LOL
    Be safe out there my friend and if you need me you know where I'll be ( for the next 40 years or so at least )
