Need a time waster? No? Well, here are a bunch of awesome links anyway :P
This brilliant post by Elizabeth Scalia on how Pope Francis is using the press really made my day! And in relation to that, I'm sure you already read Jenny's blog, but she hits the nail on the head with her explanation of Pope Francis' recent statement on homosexuality. Nothing has changed, folks - we've always been called to love!
Rabia shared this link with me, which echoes my absolute hatred for word verification on blog comments and other stupid computer things... Captcha, I *STILL* Wanna Punch Ya! Okay, I totally understand the need sometimes, but when I have to try 6 times to comment? Honestly, sometimes I just give up...
This made me tear up, and when I'm not pregnant I pretty much have a heart of stone: 24 Grooms Seeing Their Brides for the First Time
I love this post of "How To Evangelize" - "It’s not yelling at people when they’re wrong. It’s not snorting
derisively or calling them out in public. It’s not ever trying to be
right but trying to seek truth. Truth and goodness and beauty–not smug
correction or broken relationships." And as a bonus, my sister wrote it!
This made me tear up, too - a college student cancels her planned abortion - read Raquel's story.
If you're a teacher you'll love this inservice post - I especially like the parts where they have us "share" and we spend the time talking about where we'll go to lunch!
And if you're familiar with the music of Marty Haugen, I'm sorry. Here's a pretty hilarious post on 10 steps to Marty Haugen Song Writing - I especially like the end, "Play your song on a Church organ, preferably in your Diocesan Cathedral.
If it sounds good played on the organ then you need to start over. If
this happens you might want to spend more time listening to Rainbow
Connection before beginning the writing process."
