Today’s find: A cabin called Joy
At my beloved’s suggestion, I tried something new this past week: Ending our annual summer vacation with a couple of days of quiet ‘retreat time.’
Honestly, I wasn’t completely sold on the idea. I guess it’s because, on some level, I like to keep my ‘spiritual’ side separate from my ‘recreational’ side – both in their own nice, neat compartments.

Today’s find: Worthy of praise
‘We interrupt this prophetic diatribe…to bring you a few choice samples of apocalyptic vision.’ That’s about what it felt like at Mass today, with the great feast of the Transfiguration plopped down in the middle of a liturgical week otherwise devoted to a serious rant from the prophet Jeremiah.

Today’s find: Things That Endure
I’ll admit to not always being 100% attentive and engaged at Mass.
