It is not a secret that I struggle with some of the
I thought teaching PSR would bring me closer to the church and in so many wonderful ways it has brought me closer. In fact, I even channeled one of my favorite nuns when one of my students turned to me during a prayer service dedicated to St. Joseph and asked how much longer they had to kneel. As I glanced at the Eucharist on display on the alter I said (with straight face), "Jesus hung on the cross for 3 hours, I think we can manage kneeling for an hour." Sister Theresa would be proud but I meant every word, however, I am so glad they turned around when they did because at that moment, during the Litany, my eyes rolled to the back of my head when the woman reading said:
Protector of Virgins,Poor Virgins, who knew they needed protecting? There are so many things I embrace with open arms and so many things I question...

I need some inspiration as to what to give up for Lent. Last year, I gave up Facebook, the year before was red meat and the year before that was soda pop. Root out sin. Giving up sin. I want it to meaningful. Just not sure what. I know I don't want to revert to the stand by of chocolate that my mom forced us to do all through our childhood. Maybe I will just start with going to mass today and see how it plays out from there...
Happy Wednesday! Happy Lent?
