Please pray for my dear Aunt Mary who had surgery and was intubated and put on a respirator; she has been in ICU on a breathing machine. One lung is collapsed; a bronchoscopy was performed by the Pulmonologist. He found a tumor in the large bronchus that was obstructing and causing the collapse and pneumonia. The tumor started to bleed, so they were not able to biopsy nor remove the mass. She is in serious condition. In all things, may God's Will be done.

Since we moved into our house 8 years ago we have bought about 60 door knobs... it's part of our budget. If you need a demolition job done quickly, we hire out for reasonable rates... and the tykes work quickly!
Feel free to donate to our door knob fund.
Christ has risen! Indeed, he has risen! Alleluia!
Adoration of the Paschal LambWhat is the Pascha?
It obtains its name from its characteristic: from suffer (pathein) comes suffering (paschein).
Learn therefore who is the Suffering One, and who shares the suffering of the Suffering One, and why the Lord is present on the earth to clothe Himself with the Suffering One and carry Him off to the heights of heaven. It is He that delivered us from slavery to liberty, from darkness to light, from death to life, from tyranny to eternal royalty; and made us a new priesthood and an eternal people personal to Him. He is the Pascha of our salvation.

Lent was long... winter was long and cold... Holy Week was forever.... though I will say that we have had some very beautiful Masses, so for that we are exceedingly grateful for our dedicated priests! So here we are on Holy Saturday and the Paschal Fast waiting for the Paschal Feast. So what better time than the present to get caught up on all my long lost pictures.
Our Lord was crucified on the First Friday after the first full moon of the spring equinox. This year's full moon included a full lunar eclipse.
I read on Catholic Icing about the tradition of dying eggs and found it interesting so I browsed around. According to tradition, some time after the Resurrection of Christ, St. Mary Magdalen went to the Emperor tiberius Caesar and announced to him that Christ had risen from the dead and explained how this all took place. After she finished Tiberius notice a man next to him holding a basket of eggs. Tiberius challened Mary that if what she said was true, then the white eggs in the baseket should be turned into red eggs. And, indeed they were.
If you have 100% silk ties to get rid of... we'll take them! :D
