No such word as ‘Can’t’…
St Denis Parish
Jessica Cox, 25, a girl born without arms, stands inside an aircraft. The girl from
Tucson, Arizona got the Sport Pilot certificate lately and became the first pilot
licensed to fly using only her feet. Jessica Cox of Tucson was born without arms,
but that has only stopped her from doing one thing: using the word "can't."
Her latest flight into the seemingly impossible is becoming the first pilot licensed
to fly using only her feet.
With one foot manning the controls and the other delicately guiding the steering
column, Cox, 25, soared to achieve a Sport Pilot certificate. Her certificate
qualifies her to fly a light-sport aircraft to altitudes of 10,000 feet.

Joke of the Week
A child was mis-behaving in church. Her father picked her up to take her outside.
As they headed for the doorm the little girl called out to the congregation, “Pray for me!”
We pray for leaders of our communities that they be good stewards of the environment entrusted to
them. That in keeping their natural resources healthy they will be able to pass along good livelihoods to
future generations.
We pray for a greater respect for the traditions and teachings that the apostles have given to us through
the ages, that we seek to gain deeper and greater understanding of this wisdom and to be bold in its
We pray for an increased awareness that Jesus’ invitation is to everyone, not just those gathered here.
Help us to rise above the temptation to keep Him to ourselves.
