Saturday Prayers

Today is Holy Saturday. I think the Easter Vigil Mass is the most beautiful of the year. Although it is also the longest. My parents and I contemplated briefly about going, but figured it would be too much. At this Mass, new people are brought into the church. A young woman I know from years […]

Powerful Symbolism

Good Friday at church tonight was beautiful and moving. I love the symbolism in every detail. The silence broken by chanting, darkness changed by two lit candles, carrying and venerating a cross,¬†an empty altar draped plainly for the Eucharist that was consecrated the day before and then escorted out, and finally exiting the church again […]

Common Passover

I was happy to go to Holy Thursday Mass tonight. The choir started the evening off right with a beautiful song. The music was exceptional all night. The scripture reading was the story of the Last Supper, when Jesus was celebrating the Passover meal with His apostles. I have heard these words before. As I […]

Sleeping Day

Over the past couple of days, I have been making and taste testing lots of goodies. It was bound to catch up with me as I don’t do well with too much sugar. Today the upset stomach and migraine set in. This morning’s meteorologist said it would be a good napping day as the thick […]

Speedy Recovery

Last week I found out that a friend’s brother has been having serious health problems. He has just been moved out of ICU. My friend reached out on social media asking for prayers. His condition seemed to improve rapidly after that. He should be home by the end of the week. I Found God today […]

Easter Eggs

I have been making Easter candy the past couple years. I enjoy finding new recipes and new ways to put them together. My son, sister, and I talked about what kind they wanted this year and decided on coconut, peanut butter, and creme filled eggs. I got all the ingredients along with milk chocolate, dark […]

Relaxing and Rejuvenating

I love being outside and I love taking pictures. Today I found and attended a photography workshop at one of the state parks. It was led by a man who was a volunteer ranger, photographer, and archaeologist. He was very informative as we hiked around looking at rock formations and trees. I took a few […]

Passing of Beloved Priest

Today I received an email from my church announcing the death of a priest who has been serving our parish. He was retired, but was present quite a bit recently as we are without a pastor right now. My parents and I were very surprised as he was there at Mass a couple of weeks […]

Get To Cleaning

I got up bright and early this morning to get ready for the carpet cleaner to come. I picked everything up off the floor that I could. The guy was running a little late, so I cleaned the bathroom. He showed up as we were finishing lunch and got to work. It was very mild […]

Forgiveness Wins

Today I read a beautiful story about a young man who wanted to start a singing career, so he moved to Tennessee. Right after that, he was hit by a car and left paralyzed. He thought his life was over along with the career he wanted so badly. However, he forgave the person who hit […]
