I've been a little busy lately, got bit with the cleaning bug after watching "How Clean Is Your House?" on YouTube. While my apartment isn't quite as bad as some of those homes, it definitely needed (needs) a good scrub; the "after" segments motivated me somewhat. I think I'm going to do some rearranging of the furniture in the LR and my room. And then I got sidetracked reading a little biography about St. Therese of Lisieux who is my confirmation saint. It was "okay". And now I've seem to have misplaced Pope Benedict's book, but I know it's around here somewhere (it better be, since it's a library book). Oh and I took Travis to the museum for a special "space thing" they had there, which was a lot of fun.

God Is Near Us

I just got "God Is Near Us" by Pope Benedict XVI. It's about the Eucharist. I'm excited about reading it but a little nervous too. I'm afraid it might be beyond my levels of comprehension. From what I understand, the Holy Father is uber-smart. Will post more later.

The Scapularinator

My Brown Scapular had been Missing-In-Action for about a month now. Undoubtedly, little hands were to blame. I found it this morning in (where else) the boy's bedroom. They somehow managed to get it under the leg of their dresser (?). But Sweet Baby James worked it out and proclaimed "I got your Scapularinator Mommy!" That sounded like a perfect name for a Scapular/Terminator parody. The Scapularinator could roam "Catholic Communities" throughout the world, destroying such things as this ... statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary(?!), felt banners and other dubious religious art. It could have a heterodox sensor that would spray Holy Water at a priest delivering a "luv-is-all-you-need" homily. Or infuse a church with blessed incense if Sister WitchyWomyn was delivering the homily. It would show no mercy towards LegoTruck Crosses.
