A long time ago in Japan there lived a travelling man who went from place to place with his monkey who could dance. Sometimes he played music or sang and the monkey danced along with the music. After he put on a show he got money from the people who watched. After a while the monkey got old and stiff, and he was no longer able to dance very well.

In March 2013, Columban Fr. Bobby Gilmore wrote this letter to his niece Sarah and her husband Rob when he found out that Annabel Grace was born with Cystic Fibrosis.

Dear Rob and Sarah,

Just got the news about Annabel Grace and I said, God, why Annabel Grace? And God said, “Leave that to Annabel Grace and Me.”

Then, I said, “God, why Rob and Sarah?”
