Monday Musings

A few random thoughts and ponderings to start the week...

Happy Easter! - Yes, it is still Easter. And, as Catholics, we need to remind everyone that this Season continues past Easter Sunday. So wish everyone a joyous Easter.

First Communion went well this past Sunday. Our son read the second reading at Mass. He was a little nervous, but he did a great job. He practiced the whole week and especially focused on the word "expiation." He totally nailed it - the practice paid off. Now he's just glad that it's over.

I told him that he is now a living tabernacle. Every week the Body and Blood of Jesus will be inside of him. So he needs to be sure to treat the "tabernacle" well and avoid coming into contact anything that is unholy... including sin. He also needs to pay attention more closely at Mass...which he does pretty well at already. I have to say, he's a pretty good kid.

Today is the Feast of Saint George - you know, the guy on the horse fighting a dragon. What with the mythical beast and all, I always figured that George was a "mythical" saint, sort of like St. Christopher... a symbol of Christian virtue and faith, but maybe not an historical person. However, I stand corrected. Apparently Saint George was a real person. The dragon, I am pretty sure, is just a myth. ;)
