I’m glad I passed the test, somewhere back around 2004 or so.

It’s a strange feeling, the first time you call your son “Father.”
It’s been a couple of weeks since I chimed in over at the gathering of Catholic bloggers aka Sunday Snippets, A Catholic Carnival…but I figure Father’s Day would be a good time to reconnect.
I don’t have much to add regarding the question of the week regarding the tradition of Sacred Heart Enthronement — it’s never been a big part of my spirituality or practice. I DO cherish the loving heart that Christ reveals to me, however — even more, today, as I look back on a very special Father’s Day weekend, which included the ordination of our eldest son. Here’s are some highlights of that happy event:
After nearly 33 years of fatherhood, I think I was inclined to believe my children had pretty much already done all they could do to delight their Dad. I stand corrected.
My wife Gerri and I don’t play Scrabble together much any more.
The beatitudes are a load. And sometimes, I find that I’m inclined to take cover in their sheer expanse.
I find it very interesting that it’s not only Jesus who promises to send us the Spirit.
It’s almost over. Easter season, that is. Which, to my brain at least, qualifies as a bit of surprise.
