My Brain is Becoming a Prisoner

I am so tired! I have felt especially tired in the past few days. I am not currently working outside the home and I can set my own schedule. I can rise from bed when I want and go to bed late if I want. I usually watch a live-streamed morning Mass and then goContinue reading “My Brain is Becoming a Prisoner”

The Grand Experiment: Giant Reset

I don’t know about you but I am starting to get used to quarantining. I rarely go out except to the grocery store or to an essential doctor’s appointment. I wear a mask out in public.

Sentimental Clothing: Why Do We Get Attached to the Clothes We Wear?

Why do we get attached to the clothes we wear? I want to preface this blog to say that I originally started writing the draft last September so some of the ideas might not apply right now but I wanted to leave it pretty much as is, as sort of a time capsule.

The Wondrous Mystery of the Paschal Triduum

“I have given you a model to follow,so that as I have done for you, you should also do.” I like to sit and contemplate this mosaic depicting the Last Supper, especially on Holy Thursday.

Some of our responses are how the virus has affected our lives and others are a response to the people we care for and who help us go about our day to day lives.Continue reading “COPING WITH COVID”

Easter: The First Sunday after First Full Moon after the Vernal Equinox

COVID-19. It took a week or so to really set in as to what life would look like while we isolate and practice social distancing which includes no celebration of Mass at church! Social media is flooded with virtual Mass and I have limited myself to a my church and my archdiocese.

Planted Near Running Water

Thus says the Lord:Cursed is the man who trusts in human beings,who seeks his strength in flesh, whose heart turns away from the Lord.He is like a barren bush in the desert that enjoys no change of season,But stands in a lava waste, a salt and empty earth.Blessed is the man who trusts in theContinue reading “Planted Near Running Water”

Lent Already?

I am still basking in the limelight, or should I say, pink light of Valentine’s Day. My husband and I usually celebrate at home with dinner, greeting cards, and chocolate, etc. It’s probably a holdover from when the kids were growing up because we always liked to celebrate the holiday with them as well. Now,Continue reading “Lent Already?”
