The Catholic Vote

What a crucial time we live in. All catholics should get out and vote. Vote your conscience. Vote as Jesus would on these issues. Don't fall for the rhetoric. Trust in the Holy Spirit. Pray and pray. Let us put our crumbling nation at the foot of the cross.

Eternal Father, I offer You the Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.

For the sake of His sorrowful Passion, have mercy on us and on the whole world.

In the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen

Wow, I can't believe it has been so long since I posted last.

1- Deep, deep into Ancient Greece really tries my mid-aged brain. I guess it is good for it. I hope my freshman son is learning and absorbing some of it.

2- School is slipping away from me. Luckily the school schedule has a review and test week built into each quarter. This helps me catch up with the schedule and get papers done.

3- Still haven't finished my end of year report for the last school year. I know if I could get it done it would lift a heavy weight off my shoulders.

4- CCD started today. I only had one child who was a real disruptive challenge last year. This year, so far, I have two. One child will not stop tapping my arm, humming, and constantly blurting out comments that have nothing to do with CCD. My oldest (freshman) son wants to help but doesn't really know how yet. His sarcastic humor does not translate well on first graders.

5- My house has been invaded by little gray critters. My miniature daschsund should be taking care of the problem but he has not noticed them yet. I think his sniffer is on sensory overload because of the five kids. He is constantly sniffing but I don't think he has figured out what that the smell is a creature he could catch for me. As for the squirrels, he has come within millimeters of catching one or two. I would LOVE to see what happens when he does catch one.

6- Going to Vegas in a week. Woo hoo! I can't wait. No, on our budget, we can't afford it but my mommy is paying for my plane ticket and I am staying at her house.

7- Got to get my lesson for WeBeLoS ready tonight so I am not scrambling at the last minute, like I usually do. I have to make up flyers for the boys to take home and make out worksheets. I hope all the boys have fun and learn a lot.
