  1. May you be given the wisdom to do what is right, and the words that you need.
  2. Loved the series.... Adrian Paul is handsome. Proud to be a MacLeod!
  3. Hi Rev. Tess! Wow! If you start making low cost vestments, let me know. I'm also an independent catholic priest, and am in need of vestments. Right now, I have an alb and a clerical shirt and collar. I believe in simplicity. Personally, I can't imagine Jesus running around in those heavily brocaded chasubles I've seen in the catalogs. And you're right, they are outrageously priced. So I just keep it simple. Anyway, let me know if you do start making vestments. You just might have a customer here. Pax, Sr. Sue +
  4. Bluecat, I am sooo sorry to hear the bad news. I hope you're doing okay. Your stepdad sounds like he was a fascinating person.
  5. Congratulations! Woo Hoo!! He's beautiful! Blessings on you all!
  6. Just got done reading I Am Legend. If the movie is like the book, I'll pass. But then again, Hollywood changes books so much, it probably won't even be anything like the book. I'm still in the process of reading Anam Cara, A Book of Celtic Wisdom. And, after school gets back in session, my classes will be reading Esperanza Rising and To Kill A Mockingbird. Is it just me, or does it seem that books written now are less challenging and thought provoking than those written 10-20+ years ago?
  7. My prayers are with you and your family.
  8. Bel, my heart goes out to you and your friends family. May you all find peace in this troubling time. Pax, Sr. Sue+
  9. My condolences Blackthorn. My thoughts are with you.
  10. 1. The Moon is a Harsh Mistress 2. The Dragonriders of Pern series 3. The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy 4. Ender's Game series I've found that these books have been fantastic for getting kids interested in reading. So if you have a reluctant reader, you might want to try these books.
  11. So what's the book's title? That way I know what to go buy...
  12. Some of us come from catholic backgrounds, and some of us are independent catholic priests. The colors are: Purple: Lent (The 40 days before Easter), Advent (the 4 weeks before Christmas), to hear confessions, and when you're surving communion in a hospital. Red: During Holy Week, Pentecost Sunday (when we believe the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples), for ordinations, and at a mass that celebrates the death of a martyr. White: During the 12 days of Christmas, the 50 days of Easter, for funerals, weddings, on Trinity Sunday, and Epiphany Day Green: Pretty much whenever you can't wear the other colors. Basically, its the Sundays after Epiphany Day and before Ash Wednesday and after Pentecost and before Advent. Hope this helps. Pax, Sr. Sue+
  13. Let's see....for poetry and ease of memorization, I'd say King James. For study, I LOVE my Harper Collins Study Bible..... My hubby prefers the NIV, RSV, and Message translations....they're easier to read.
  14. Hmmm, you might want to try The Message translation then. It's even more modern language.
  15. Try The Grand Inquisitor by Dostoyevsky. It's actually an excerpt from The Brothers Karamazov. It's an interesting debate between Christ and the Grand Inquisitor during the Spanish Inquisition, that speaks to the nature of man.
  16. Good job Rev. Allyson....It is a beautiful ceremony.
  17. Quite true Rev. Allyson.
  18. ...or you can try the Book of Common Prayer...(available in most book stores). It contains an order of service for sundays, as well as baptisms, confirmations, weddings, etc.....
  19. Well, you could always try asking a catholic priest to bless the home.
  20. Sounds like an interesting book. Let me know if it's any good. As for half of Americans not being able to name one Gospel, that actually wouldn't surprise me....You have to remember, kids were probably asked too. And every year, I overhear kids talking about how they are either Christian or Catholic. And when I was the adult sponsor for an after school Christian club (Sponsor means all I did was sit and supervise....I did NOT teach) I had parents that pulled their kids from the club and chewed me out because according to them, how dare I allow a Catholic girl to be a member of the club because everyone knows they aren't. So trust me...the statistic about 1/2 of Americans not being able to name a gospel would not surprise me.
  21. Beautiful ceremony! THank you for sharing it with us!
