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.
Amen.

Met an old soworker...

I was at an offsite today.  Going out to get a drink of water, I saw an older grey haired man with a beard working on a computer in the open area. He suddenly called my name. I didn't recognize him. He was a 1st LT  that I worked with in 1982. I am amazed how time flies.

For all St. Thomas' bad rap...

STA in Woodhaven, NY (H/T to Kathleen Jones!)

Easter Monday...

Blessed Easter Monday to one and all. I had a pretty good day today - got to brief the director today. It went well. I still have a lot to do but this was one thing off my plate.

Happy Easter to One and all!!

I got to go to our church for Easter Vigil. We hadn't been to Easter Vigil in years, maybe never. It was impressive albeit smoky!

We had a beautiful day for Easter Sunday.

45th Day of Lent... Good Friday...

Good Friday. We don't understand how important this day is. Our Lord gave his life for us.

We adore You, Oh Christ, and we praise You! For by Your Cross, You gave us eternal life!

I had a dream that I was tying to care for a premature baby who was less than six inches long. It was black and there was nothing I could do to keep it alive.

I was able to fix the plumbing issue that plagued me yesterday, which was good!

44th Day of Lent... Holy Thursday...

The Triduum begins...

I had a dream about visiting my mother in her new apartment. Time is marching on and her generation is getting ready to move on.

I was able to complete two project deadlines at work, which felt good.

I have to show Christ to all I come into contact.

I had a thought during Mass tonight that what if Purgatory wipes clean all of the sin BEFORE Baptism? Is that a Catholic way of looking at it?

We hadn't been to Mass on Holy Thursday in years. It was refreshing compared to the new age Seders we used to go to. It felt Catholic.

It was 10 years ago today that Pope John Paul passed away. Now he is a Saint.
Requiem Aeternam dona ei , Domine  et lux perpetua luceat ei: Requiescat  in pace. Amen

43rd Day of Lent...

Today is the last day of Lent, I guess. Tomorrow is Holy Thursday - the start of the Tridium. It's also April Fool's Day. I'm not a good joker. There have been some awesome jokes on facebook. (Although facebook is evil!)

Can I live my life in such a way as people can say they see Jesus instead of me?

41st Day of Lent...

I thought Lent was forty days long! Guess not. Back to the mines, but people were asking me for information. I like to be helpful.

My youngest son was stopped by the local Sheriff's deputies on his way to catch the bus to school. Everyone wants the police to protect them, yet we hate the cop that writes us the ticket.

40th Day of Lent... Palm Sunday...

The beginning of Holy Week already, where does time go?

We got to Mass early to try & get to confession. Unfortunately, there was a HUGE line. We will have to make other arrangements.

Did a lot of work on the new house, installing a new kitchen faucet. I got the water working but it wouldn't drain...
