Today’s find: Plumbing the generations

It occurs to me that faucet repairs, like salvation history, tend to require a lot of manpower.

At least, that’s the legacy I seem to have received from my father.

Today’s find: Party time

I know for a fact that at one time in their lives, these ladies would have started the party at 10:30 PM…not be wrapping it up at that hour.

Not that I’m complaining.

Today’s (#TBT) find: Flannery

Today’s find: Snap!

I was trying to be helpful – really, I was, in my “Gramps” sort of way. Instead, I wound up setting off a mini-crisis.

Or perhaps I should say “sitting off.”

Today’s find: Road trip

Well, at least one-in-five of us left happy. That would be my cousin’s son, Lucas, who watched his SIU Salukis put a whuppin’ on our SLU Billikens in Carbondale the other night.

Today’s find: Theologians

“Marana tha! Come, Lord Jesus!” we pray (in the responsorial psalm) on the final day of the liturgical year.

Today’s find: Living the 4th

One of the oddest things, the most curious blessings, of a Kairos Prison Retreat is the Fourth Day experience.

As team members, there’s nothing we can do to encourage our new brothers in Christ, beyond praying for them, as they begin (or continue) their walks with the Lord.

That’s much different than what happens with other Cursillo-based retreats. It leaves a bit of a hole in our hearts…

Alleluia!
