I'm Still Here!

Gentle Reader: I know, I've been scarce. Vincenzo has nothing else to 'shop (not true!) and Terry has been mocking me (always true). I've been on a hiatus. Too much going on. But, all is well; other, than I still feel spiritually "dry". I'm currently reading Come Be My Light-the book of the letters of Mother Theresa of Calcutta. I think this will be a great help to me-to realize that if Mother could feel the darkness, who am I, Lord?

Besides, now that John "Breck Boy" Edwards is "living a life of truth" WTH(eck) else is there to say?

Life. You can't make it up! Oh, the humanity!

I'm so glad you're back - I worry when you're... well, you know... on a binge.


Seriously - I stopped reading Mother's book - too depressing. I gave it away. Same thing happened when I read Leonie's book (the sister of St. Therese) - too depressing. Isn't that weird though?

I'm really enjoying The Fulfillment of all Desire by Ralph Martin.

With all that is going on in the world, it's really helping to get in some sort of spiritual reading each morning.

Dear Cathy-

I'm so glad to hear from you!! I was beginning to worry that Armando the Leprechaun (he's EVIL!) might have hit your home either on St. Patty's or the days leading up to the feast-day. Gosh, I'm so happy to see you're OK.

Anyhoo, I hope you write more in the very near future. I've got a hankering for a cranky Cathy post:0)

Glad you're back; there must be something in the air, bec. I'm going through a sort of desert experience as well. Read similar thoughts on other blogs, so we're not alone, thank God... He's here, but sometimes seems far away, as even M. Teresa experienced it. We're in good company!

God bless,
Patricia G.

Glad to hear you're okay. I was afraid you had too much green beer and got turned the wrong way on I-35 and ended up in Oklahoma somewhere.

I've been reading "The End of the Present World & The Mysteries of the Future Life" - one of St Therese of Lisieux's favorite books. I'm on the section about purgatory, and it has given me greater impetus to pray for the poor souls.

Did you know that Terry is kinda bizarre? Me neither!!

Dryness and darkness are a gift...they are the "everyday" of the spiritual life (H. Urs von Balthasar)...just a reference to one of the "big guns" because something from me might not be so encouraging:<)!).
Love "Come Be My Light"...we're listening to it during meals here now and I'm doing her retreat in the Appendix during Adoration.
Simply wonderful...such encouragement and direction.
Bl. Mother Teresa, pray for us, that we may be faithful to Christ, our Spouse! Amen.
