Another Holy Priest


I tried to link to Msgr. Reilly's talk in my response. Alas, it didn't "take." So below is the original excerpt and then the link to the rest of the talk.

>>But the war is over. You're not in the front lines; get that out of your head. We lost the war; you are behind enemy lines. When you're behind enemy lines, in occupied territory, you have to fight differently.

If you go there and say, 'Babies are being killed, we've got to get them out!' they're going to take you away. You are not going to the clinics to save the physical life of the baby; you're going there for the conversion of the abortionist, the mother, the people going in.

A lot of pro-lifers who go to clinics are like Peter, ready to take out a sword and lop off a few ears. Jesus said, put away the sword. He shows us we must be there with the long-suffering and patience of Christ<<<

This is a good idea.

Snipped from site-

The "3 Rs" of BookCrossing...

Read a good book (you already know how to do that)

Register it here (along with your journal comments), get a unique BCID (BookCrossing ID number), and label the book

Release it for someone else to read (give it to a friend, leave it on a park bench, donate it to charity, "forget" it in a coffee shop, etc.), and get notified by email each time someone comes here and records journal entries for that book. And if you make Release Notes on the book, others can Go Hunting for it and try to find it!

End snip-

Bad as it may be...


we still may have it worse.

The folks at Catholiceducation.org link to the UK's Cosmo and their new "spirituality" column. The term is to be used loosely. (Pun intended)

Call it bad but at least the UK readership is on the hunt for someting to placate their rabid hedonism with something other than rabid hedonism. The Carnal Counselor and The Bedside Horoscope are the closest we get to spiritual columns in the US edition.

My inner twelve-year old says "blech!"

Now some preachin' to the choir about s.e.x. from a gal who even lived in Texas for a spell-

Color this mama surprised after walking into the TRAP that was a dual baby shower. And take a guess who wove the web?

Bless their hearts-

Have ta brag a bit on how well MamaT and Smock put this together. I had thought I was going to another friend's shower and she thought she was coming to mine. That is until I asked her if she was suprised. She gave me one of those head tilted,frozen thought, are you an alien kinda looks. So right when I'm thinking why is she looking at me so funny. Smock yelled "Surprise!"...clever grrrrls.

The vittles (I don't think I have ever typed that word) thanks to Terry, were so very yummy and the games, kudos to Micki, were a hoot !!!!!

My highlights...

* Seeing all the beautiful people there. I think we thoroughly enjoyed each other's company that night.
* Standing in amazement of Terry and her ability to pick out baby food by sight alone!!!!!
* Thinking that my Mother-in-law was going to have to wear bloomers all night.

Scariest moment...

*Thinking (with a bag on my head) These ladies REALLY don't expect me to strip do they????

Merci buckets my precious friends...you did a lovely thing for all of us.

We shall not cease from exploration. . .

And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

My daughter is a saint! I praise God!

What a wonderful day.

Greetings from the land of Pink and Lace

Thanks to everyone for your prayers and well wishes. Our 'lil bambina is here. She is too beautiful. I think we are now finally over the shock of entering girldom. As I kept saying to everyone when they would ask if I wanted a boy or a girl..."Well, if the baby's a girl the dinner table will be a bit nicer." I never ask people that question. I guess mostly because I am really not interested in their answer...what's the point when you're not in control of the outcome.

My husband IS different with an infant girl. I can't really explain how, but now in the house there is an air of pink and lace to add to the dinosaurs and grasshoppers. It will be interesting to see our family unfold into this brand new person. Right now, I am just constantly adjusting my expectations. LOL, actually I think until Easter I have three expectations....no one dies....people eat and we all sleep at some point -- that last one will have to go too.

Much love and thanks to Micki and Terry...for their Summa love and prayers.
