I don’t have much to add on the current Question of the Week — “Do you have any recipe you make for religious reasons?” (Do Christmas cookies count? Or how about Kairos Prison Ministry cookies?)
But I did find a recent Question of the Week — “Who is your favorite saint?” — intriguing. All saints have been a blog topic of mine lately… including some thoughts on how many of us are going to be saved … and what it might be like to picture yourself (or one of your offspring) on a holy card.
And then there’s my attempt to answer the age-old Catholic question: If a child is ordained, or enters a religious order, does that mean the parents get a free ticket to heaven? (Just kidding…but I am serious about my experience of the sacramental nature of parenthood. See what you think about my position.)
