I stepped onto my enclosed front porch when I saw a neighbor looking at me from outside the window. He was standing on a ladder.

I asked what he was doing. He said he was washing that big window — someone had egged it. I had not seen that.

That good man is a Catholic, a surgeon. He had many uses for his time and energy, but he chose to clean my window. He is truly a good neighbor.
