I'm a holy man minus the holiness.--E. M. Forster

Sancte Michael Archangele,

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in proelio;
contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium.
Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur:
tuque, Princeps militiae Caelestis,
satanam aliosque spiritus malignos,
qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo,
divina virtute in infernum detrude.

2nd Sunday of Lent...

It snowed today. We should've gone to Mass last night. This was a "How an Atheist spends Sunday day".

I dreamt about going to a college function before I got my degree and meeting people that I have worked with and still work with. I felt so stupid.

10th & 11th Days of Lent...

I wasn't able to log yesterday... It was a busy day. I did the Crossfit games Open WOD 15.1 & 15.1a. It was disappointing. I was only able to get 2 rounds and 15 Toes To Bars. The TTBs were the choke point of the WOD. Doing Clean & jerks afterward was tough. I did 135# & 155#. I was not able to clean 165#. This was very disappointing.

Today was a typical Saturday. I don't have to think about work. Everything I do HAS to be perfect. Being an editor of my own work is very difficult for me.

9th Day of Lent...

This was a day I was busy. I was able to work out and I'm glad about it! I am doing things that I don't see how I can get credit for. Supposedly the Lord is making me what He wants me to be. Sadly, I don't seem to do what He wants...

8th day of Lent...

This was a day to dig into my work. I did a lot of work, though I question whether it will get me anywhere.

I did have a dream that the presentation I am giving next week went terribly awry. Hopefully it will go well!

7th day of Lent...

At least when bad things happen, they eventually let up. I'm being watched. I don't do well under pressure. At least today I was able to work out, which felt better. I have to remember more stuff to write in this blog...

Oh yeah! The Lord Giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord!!

And it looks like I'm going to be a grandfather again!

6th Day of Lent...

Mondays are tough. Today was a bunch of work, much was just to stay local, BUT it HAD to be perfect. Editing my work has always been hard. I always stare at the same thing, seeing nothing. Then I submit it and the errors pop out!

That's fine, yet other people make the same mistakes and no one cares...

The 1st Sunday of Lent...

Went to mass today. The sermon was basically am I willing to sin if that adds to the nails or the thorns, basically adding to the sufferings of Jesus? This is sobering. If only I can remember it!!

4th day of Lent...

A snowy day focusing on the death of my career. I had such high hopes for what I wanted to do. At least I was able to do a lot of snow shoveling which helped.

3rd Day of Lent...

Things are going on as they have for the past few days. My chickens are coming home to roost and I'm being watched like I know nothing. I get extra work which interferes with things that need to be done.

Also I'm concerned that when I try to be firm and stand up for myself, I'm accused of being insulting and yelling...

2nd Day of Lent

What have I done??

"Let us keep our eyes fixed on Jesus, who leads us in our faith and brings it to perfection: for the sake of the joy which lay ahead of him, he endured the cross, disregarding the shame of it, and has taken his seat at the right of God's throne.
3 Think of the way he persevered against such opposition from sinners and then you will not lose heart and come to grief.
4 In the fight against sin, you have not yet had to keep fighting to the point of bloodshed.
5 Have you forgotten that encouraging text in which you are addressed as sons? My son, do not scorn correction from the Lord, do not resent his training,
6 for the Lord trains those he loves, and chastises every son he accepts.
7 Perseverance is part of your training; God is treating you as his sons. Has there ever been any son whose father did not train him?
8 If you were not getting this training, as all of you are, then you would be not sons but bastards.
9 Besides, we have all had our human fathers who punished us, and we respected them for it; all the more readily ought we to submit to the Father of spirits, and so earn life.
10 Our human fathers were training us for a short life and according to their own lights; but he does it all for our own good, so that we may share his own holiness.
11 Of course, any discipline is at the time a matter for grief, not joy; but later, in those who have undergone it, it bears fruit in peace and uprightness.
12 So steady all weary hands and trembling knees 
13 and make your crooked paths straight; then the injured limb will not be maimed, it will get better instead.
I'm a sinner and an going through this at work!! This is what Fr. Larry Richards preached on this today on EWTN!
