Let’s Talk about Thanksgiving

Let’s Talk about Thanksgiving

You know the story of the first Thanksgiving. You probably acted it out in school–maybe more than once–complete with Pilgrim hats and feathered headdresses. It is immortalized on your serving plates, your seasonal decorations, and your holiday sale...
What I Read in October

What I Read in October

Remember how sulky I was last month about having only read three books? Well, I made up for it this month! A major reason for this is that my daughter and I went to a Friends of the Library book sale and I bought so many books at rock bottom prices that I needed a...
Our Patient Father

Our Patient Father

People love to make fun of the songs we sang at church in the early 1970s, but I was a little girl then and I remember many of them fondly. Today’s Gospel took me back to that time instantly, to the refrain of a  song written by Medical Mission Sister Miriam Therese...

August was NOT a reading month, y’all. Among other things (and aren’t there always other things?), Lorelei started her Senior year of high school, William started his fifth semester of college, and we moved my father across town. Lorelei now has a 7 a.m....

Seeking Humility

In a world obsessed with social media, many of us judge our worth by how often our posts are liked or shared by others, hoping to go viral, obsessively checking our phones throughout the day when we think we have shared something exceptionally profound or amusing....
What I Read in July

What I Read in July

I finished my sixth book with just a day to spare and made my six book goal for July. You would think I would have an easier time meeting my goals in the summer but that has not seemed to be the case. Master of Middle-Earth by Paul H. Kocher I picked this up on...
Potter and Clay

Potter and Clay

Abba, Abba Father. You are the potter; we are the clay, the Work of Your hands . . . That is the beginning of a song I remember singing often at morning Mass when I was an 8th grader in parochial school. You probably recall the hymnal; it was ubiquitous in the early...
