Spring greetings from all of us at Adeodatus! How terrific to feel the sun’s warmth after this winter of snowstorms and rain. If you have a moment, grab a chair and read this letter from a Kensington guy named “Joey.” His tale of growing up on the streets, without much parental presence or love, is the story of many young people today. Think of the recent “flash mobs.” The number of high-risk children of the incarcerated is a national problem. 5,000 children in Philadelphia have at least one parent in jail today. Joey, whose four year old son’s name is tattooed on his arm, calls out with a cry for all of these young people. His father was missing as Joey is now for his son! Will you listen to him, maybe put yourself in his place? Then put yourself in his son’s place: Where is my daddy?
