::Moments of Gratitude::
A roof over my head.
Why for some reason my washer is stopping mid-way through its run. I have not used it since the past Sunday.
For the Church
For the Pope, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, and all those in the Priesthood
For those in Religious Life
For the Unborn and Women who are thinking of having an abortion
For the marchers who are going to the March for Life
For all those in the military and their families
For Dr. Martin Luther King’s Family
For all those who are ill
For all those who have died.
Italian Wedding Soup with a side of Breadsticks.
Black Stretchy Capri Pants and a St. Charles’ High School T-Shirt.
Nothing today except what I am cooking.
No where, staying at home today.
Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Jurassic Park (well I am not watching, I am listening to it because my husband is watching it on his DVD Player)
::Wandering Around the Web::
At my home parish in Columbus, Ohio there is a young man who is a transitional Deacon (meaning that this coming May he will be ordained a Priest). I should also mention my home parish is run by the Dominican Friars of the St. Joseph Providence. What am I getting to? Well, the Vocation Director for the St. Joseph Providence has a blog devoted to the Vocations of Providence. And what I found was Br. Reginald’s vocation story. And I wanted to share.
Another Dominican Brother I have come to know through my home parish wrote an entry on the Dominicana Blog. If you have not read Dominicana before I highly recommend you do!
While I am unable to go to the March for Life because of reasons, I just do not have the money. Emily Stimpson, a wonderful author in my opinion writes on Catholic Vote on the Top Ten Reasons to March for Life.
Lastly, my home parish we have what I call a “Catholic Celebrity”, Patrick Madrid. If you have not read his books or heard him on the radio, I suggest you do. He and his family are wonderful people. Patrick Madrid posted a new entry on his website promoting his radio show. I find it great and funny.
Today is the Feast of St. Agnes.
::Around the House::
Cleaning, cleaning, and more cleaning. I have laundry to do too. Poor husband he might kill me with all the cleaning I want to do.
Tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of Roe vs. Wade. I am not able to do much (as in going to Mass) but I am praying for all those who will go and hold stance that LIFE IS PRECIOUS. Lots of blog entries to write, reading, and cleaning. Endless cycle alright by me.
