3.5 timeouts Tuesday
Katie Holmes has returned to the Catholic Church. Some people are upset, because the church at which she has registered is not Catholic enough. Many comments have been made, some valid, some idiotic. The most idiotic came, sadly, from a priest:: "Ummm, do we really have to take the evil dwarf back?" Father, 'we' are not taking anyone back, the Holy Spirit is taking someone back, and I would seriously not advise anyone to try and place roadblocks for that reunion. For the proper attitude and reaction to someone returning to the fold, re-read the parable of the prodigal son.
Been travelling around by car on weekends lately. I love seeing my home. Last weekend we were at Kingston, taking in the old city. We also attended Mass, and had a bit of a revelation. I have often heard many conservative Catholics complaining about too much participation, misinterpretations of the active participation mandated by the council and all that. In Kingston, we saw what no participation looked like, and it was not good.
Pray for friend and fellow blogger Vox Cantoris. For some reason, trouble always finds him, wherever he is. Keep slugging, Vox. You would only find a quiet life boring.
Happy Birthday to LarryD, who started this whole 3.5 Tuesday mess. Without him, I'd be blogging even less. So he's to be praise, or blamed, or something.
