Churchy Stuff

*As someone who works in Campus Ministry, it is especially troubling to me when I see stories about Catholic universities that seem to be losing more of their Catholic Identity. Pray for the University of St. Thomas in Minn.

*Remember to go to Church tonight or tomorrow morning to fulfill the obligation for the Feast of the Immaculate Conception. But, even more than an obligation, do it in order to join our prayers with our Immaculate Mother - Mary, in praise of her son, Jesus. Mary, pray for us.

*When a Pope says it, it sounds profound. If I said it, it would sound silly or pretentious. But, if it works for you:
Hope, therefore, transforms all personal, social and religious spheres. Christian hope is invoked in a prayer to Mary, the "Star of the Sea," which shines above us and guides us on our path; a path that should be run with the feet of hope.
*I can't wait for this document. Sounds like a timely and important one. Of course, anything written about evangelization is up my alley.
