Sorry the blogs have been few and far between. We have had a lot of family visiting for a couple of weeks, which has been wonderful. I did manage to find some delightful and/or interesting things, but I think they are at least a week old or so and thought I would pass on a couple things I have learned over the course of these two weeks.
1. The tradition of the novena began with the Apostles! I didn’t know that, and how long have I been Catholic? It recalls the nine days of persevering in prayer that they did between the Ascension and Pentecost. Cool.
2. I have seen a couple of miracles recently and think I am in shock. Have to tell you about them later.
3. The boys’ dad dropped by for a few hours, after being away for two and a half years. My youngest was tickled to know that he at least has a dad, even if he doesn’t get to see him very much. They all did extremely well, including their dad. I still pray for his conversion because he just is not the same person I married, so like Luke Skywalker, I gonna have to say, “I still sense the good in him,” or something like that.

HappyNun I just found out she is a Salesian. I have grown rather fond of their primary mentor, St. Francis de Sales. St. John Bosco was inspired by him as well.
I can’t wait to spend more time in catching up with you all and throwing up some more posts. God bless!
