Holy Thursday 2016

1. The reflection on the stones is one I can't take credit for. That's from my classmate Fr. Brendan Kelly. In both Masses I failed to give credit, so I want to do so here.

2. If you had kids in Totus Tuus in the Diocese of Lincoln last summer, they may have already heard the story at the end here. I always give that caveat though. I am not responsible for any mishaps your children may engage in.

MOPS Talk on the Sabbath

The MOPS group (Mothers of Pre-Schoolers) in Minden invited me to give a talk on Keeping Holy the Sabbath. I had made a joke at the beginning that I may talk a little too fast and that that is even what I had named this blog. They chuckled, I told myself to go slow, and then ended up going about as fast as I can remember in any talk recently. Maybe knowing they were tired moms made me subconsciously think I needed to go quickly? Who knows.

Content note: At the beginning of the talk I told the story of the ancient martyrs of Abitene who proclaimed "We cannot live without Sunday!" I messed up a few details. I got a few names jumbled as I was trying to read some of the detail bits off my phone as I went. If you want to read the whole (accurate) story click here.

And here is the audio of the talk itself.
