Happy fifth week in the Easter season, everyone! Yes, it’s still Easter. We Catholics like to party! After rising from the dead, but before the Ascension, Jesus was so kind and affectionate to want nothing more than to visit the holy women, Mary Magdalen, the disciples of Emmaus, the Apostles, and His blessed Mother. And don’t forget His affection when Jesus went to Limbo to once again and was able to visit once again His earthly father Joseph, as well as his grandparents St. Anne and St. Joachim and all the holy men and women from the Old Testament.
Well, it’s been a couple weeks since my last post. I have an excuse though (don’t be that guy with excuses). All at the same time, I finished up fire fighter recruit school (EMT is next) as well as coordinating the First Communion and Confirmation classes, while keeping up with my tennis part time job I was working before the full time Religious Education job started recently (RIGHT before the biggest time of the year…First Communion and Confirmation that is).

We all know Saint Therese of Lisieux, the Little Flower, and her message of doing small things with great love. As a man, I love that there’s a male saint who essentially said the same thing!

Well, Happy Thursday in the Easter Octave to all you crazy cats! He is Risen! Continue reading “Kissing”
One paragraph to share personal good news. I’m off to a good start with the new job. I still intend to keep fire fighting and jiu jitsu and weight lifting (these biceps don’t get this way on accident!) But the new job is going well. My boss only has one picture on his wall and it’s of Pope Benedict XVI! And he quoted the Baltimore Catechism in today’s homily! A priest after my own heart!! God had mercy on me after this past rough year! Please keep this in your continued prayers.
And now for today’s topic, which will just mention 2 non-catholic sources that back up the first two blogs on this topic! Links are provided if you’d like to read or reread them! Continue reading “Slow Wins the Race…part 3”
