Molly's Invocation:

Heavenly Father, We ask that you bless this gathering and its meal to our use. On this Memorial Day Weekend we ask that you bless the families here who have been touched by a family member who served our great country. We are thankful this evening Lord for the gift of friendship. While some might call it a game, we are thankful for the sport of golf and all that it has brought to our father, through great days and less then great, you have given the gift of purpose, the gift of distraction from all that is complicated and that of focus on something more enjoyable; a game yes, but a game that is simply the conduit for comradery, joy, laughter, health and fitness. To know that he has a tee time, a place to be, people looking forward to seeing him, counting on him as their fourth, that he is needed. I know that whenever I hear someone say "It's only a game", I will think back on this night.

 

Finally Lord, we thank you for the gift of Faith, which has always been my Dad's greatest gift to us. Amen.

The Reverend Robert J. Randall, Pastor Emeritus

(Father Randall forwarded this blessing to be read at Clint’s 90th birthday party. It did not arrive in time to be read before the dinner.)

 

God our Father, we beg deepest blessings on the ninetieth birthday of Clint Wynne, great husband of Rosemary, great father of David, Clint Jr., Molly and Martha and grand-father of their children. In Rhode Island he is known as a Trustee of St. Sebastion Church, reader of The Word, Eucharistic Minister, promoter of Marriage Encounter, member of the Diocesan Clergy Renewal panel, member of the Diocesan Executive Advisory Council, and honored by Saint  John Paul ll with a Knighthood as Knight in The Order of St. Gregory The Great, Vice President of Hospital Trust National Bank, President of a Consortium of six banks, Trustee St. Joseph Hospital, President Rhode Island College Foundation, recipient Rhode Island College Presidential Medal of Distinction, Class President Northwestern Univercity, golfing member of the great Wannamoisett Country Club, and weekly competitor of Dr. McNelis, playmate of George Burns of Block  Island and penitent and golfing rival of me, his old pastor. For all who knew him up North, a gentleman par excellence.

 

As you know him, heavenly Father, he is one of your “stout-hearted men” that leads your “ten-thousand strong,” As You know him Jesus Christ, he is your tender-hearted disciple who lifts up his family and all his brothers and sisters. As you know him, Holy Spirit, he is another apostle Paul who would walk a thousand miles to answer the call of the gospel of mercy and love.

 

As we in Florida know him, he is our golfer, organizer of team sports, our light-house keeper and bon-vivant at our club parties. He is our neighbor who fills our time with joy and hope. He is our brother who keeps pushing us up the mountain of fellowship. He is just a man who can’t say no, one who invites rather than divides, one who cements rather than weakens, one who keep silent in the halls of gossip so he can speak truth in the heavens.

 

Along with the papal blessing of Pope Francis, I send my priestly blessing of family joy.

For all sixty years of knowing him, I sing his honors and accomplishments. He has never disappointed me as pastor, as comrade, as fellow Christian. In fact, I have learned from him the patience and steadfastness of his Master, Jesus Christ.

 

Since I am elder by two years and seven months, I command him now to let loose with family and friends in exorbitant celebration this night. And if he meets his God and his saints before I do, I hope he would say a good word for me, that I might also be one with him in the communion of saints, with his good wife Rosemary, his son David and his missionary priest brother Jim. Happy birthday, Clint, king-day, wing-day, fling-day, family day, club day and forever happy day! All the blessings of God, from your friend, Father Bob Randall.

Ode To a Fellow Named Clint

 

A fellow we know as Clint Wynne

A notable gent among men

Will celebrate soon

With a toast and a tune

His 90th year among friends

 

His life has been full from the start

From family to golfers in carts

A treasure is he

and he tells me you see

He's got all his original parts

 

He plays lots of golf, I should mention

A way to have fun and ease tension

Though he might not hear well,

His golf game is swell

And his putter still stands at attention

 

He always maintains his cool

When the Men's Group adds a new rule

He continues to play

And at the end of the day

He strips down and jumps in his pool!

 

So let's raise a glass in good cheer

And wish him the best for the year

As he starts the next ten

With a swag and a grin

And a smile for the upcoming year

 

Let the party begin.
