Totus Tuus: “All Yours”

    Today our family began setting up a fund through which to give donations to non-profits.  We decided to call it the “Totus Tuus Fund”–Totus Tuus was John Paul II’s motto, meaning “All Yours.”  He meant that he was giving himself over entirely to Mary, whom he trusted would bring her perfectly and unwaiveringly to her Son.
     I explained to the family at the dinner table what Ron and I were doing, and what the name of the fund would be.
     Jake piped in, “The what?  The Totus Tootus Fund??”  It sounded like “tooting” or passing gas to him!  Yikes.
