Jay announces that Catholic Carnival 156 is up and running!
This week is Catholic Schools Week. Please pray for the future of Catholic education in the United States as well as that they might be truly Catholic.
This tag made it over from Uncle Jim at A Second Chance:
Rules:1. Pick up the nearest book (of at least 123 pages). 2. Open the book to page 123. 3. Find the fifth sentence. 4. Post the next three sentences. 5. Tag five people.(Though I am going to cheat and say tag yourself as he did.)
I am so thankful that I was close to a decent book! This is from Thomas Dubay's book, "Fire Within".
From page 123 beginning with the third sentence: "If the reader recoils at the thought of much solitude and at the unappealing prospects of fitting it into a crowded schedule, St. Theresa is an understanding mentor. She adverts to our needing to learn to like and appreciate being alone with God, and she is mindful that we need to get used to it, that it does not come easily at the outset. Determination is therefore in order to see to it that first things do come first, that we are prepared to provide the suitable time and place for growth to happen."
