Readers, as I am still dealing with a somewhat evil stomach/digestive system I was able to write five favorites for this week.
As many of you know the Conclave began yesterday, and as of today it is still just black smoke coming from the Chimney. As this is my first ever experience of such an event.
One of the greatest things for me is there is a reliable source of commentary when it comes to the Conclave, not like the secular media who asks commentary from people who have NO CLUE what they are talking about. EWTN has a live stream feed for the network online, for someone who has no cable it is a plus.
My favorite Cardinal Dolan Quote
I hope the conclave will not go on too long. All I know is that I’m just taking in a small “carry-on” piece of baggage. If we’re in there too long, and if they show photographs of St. Martha’s from outside Vatican City, my room will be the one with the laundry hanging in the window to dry!
I was laughing a lot when I read the quote on his blog, the last he wrote before entering the Conclave. But, it does send a signial that as I have noticed with others (EWTN Commentaries) are thinking this Conclave will not be that long. One would never know, but if it is longer, will Cardinal Dolan do as he mentioned, I highly doubt it, but would it not be funny if he did.
Two Sailors from the Civil War
Last week something amazing happened (I did not find out about it until this week), two Civil War Sailors were buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. These two men were aboard the USS Monitor which sank in 1862 due to bad weather. What is amazing is how they were found, they were found in the gun turret (I think I am spelling that correctly) after it was brought out from the North Carolina coast over a decade ago.
I find this just amazing! When I go to Washington, D.C. guess I am adding a new set of boys to me list of visiting. Hope my boys won’t be jealous over this.
My Style Board
Recently I have been pinning a lot of things on my boards over at Pinterest. But, I must say My Style Board has the most pins yet. I know I will never wear most of what I pinned because well I will never have the money nor can I ever find that outfit, that doesn’t cost me an arm and leg. Yet, if I could I would so wear all those outfits.
