The first two days of this Kairos Weekend have been filled with “strange blessings”. Almost nothing has gone exactly according to “our” plans…but we keep showing up, and the Holy Spirit keeps finding us “a way where there is no way” during Menard #15.
We praise and thank You for that blessed assurance, Most Holy One!
And with Your help, we will report for duty again today!
Storm clouds brought an early snow…but they have not dampened our desire to share the Good News inside Menard this weekend.
Out of darkness…Wonderful Light!
Come , Holy Spirit! Shine all around Menard during our Kairos Prison Ministry Retreat!
Maybe it’s just the company I keep, but I’ve had a bit of trouble convincing folks that you don’t have to be canonized in order for today — All Saints — to count as “your” feast day.
Perhaps it was the dark roast’s insistent rancidity that set me off, but I found myself grousing a bit about the prospect of Trick-Or-Treaters assaulting our domestic portal this evening.
A beautiful, sunny autumn day proved irresistible…and so I found myself outdoors, exploring The Way.
Fr. Tim was certainly a good sport about it…which is more than I can say about my dear wife.
I’ve become obsessed with doors in recent days. Or perhaps I should say “door.”
Did a double-take…when I looked out the window to the backyard earlier today. There in the grass, just a few feet from the patio, stood an impressive organic mass – a hefty white mushroom that (to the best of my knowledge) hadn’t been there the day before.
This is my second attempt at writing a blog post today. My dear wife spared you from the first.
