Feel like you have been dropped here from another planet? 94% of the news has been devoted to a pop stars death/funeral/discussions of the same/rehash with hangers-on...whatever. ..... In the meantime life intrudes on all of us. My cousin got married in Chicago (in a Catholic church no less-He's not Catholic, so this was a shock)at St. Alphonsus and I got to attend St. John's Cantius just before they appeared on EWTN. Awesome place and very neat to see. Confessional LINES--wow! Both Churches are so old that they had the clips for men's hats on the back of the pews.
A friend almost lost a child this week-all we could do was to pray. Thankfully, God mercifully answered the firestorm of prayer and she is fine.
It is time to be very thankful and rest in the Lord.
