In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

In Celebration of MHS Class of 1958

A Tribute and Celebration

We were the class of 1958, members of the Greatest Generation as well as children of the Greatest Generation. Born in 1940, we are also called members of the Traditional Generation.

Our childhood, post World War II, "was the best of times . . . it was the age of wisdom . . . it was the epoch of belief . . .it was the season of Light . . . it was the spring of hope . . . we had everything before us . . .we were all going direct to Heaven . . . ." (A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.) At least, that's the way I felt about it. We were truly blessed.

And dwelt among us

When at night the Christmas trees are lighted
and presents are exchanged,
the unfulfilled longing strives further outward,
toward a different shining - until
the miracle of the Holy Night renews itself:
 "And the word was made flesh..."

(from The Mystery of Christmas by Edith Stein
aka St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross)

Glad Tidings of Great Joy

Merry Christmas & Happy Hanukah!

May your days be merry and bright,
filled with God's blessings on you and your family.

My prayer is that as these December days come again, year after year,
may our class continue to be one in our affection & care for one another.

Peace and All Good, Ouida
