Time to take a break from writing about my thoughts and life experiences and turn the spotlight to others’ thoughts, experiences, and great ideas. I took a podcast-listening sabbatical but recently returned. I really enjoy hearing other people talk into my ear instead of listening to my erratic thoughts all the time. I found the […]
I love being Catholic. I love the Catholic Church. I love the people of the Church, every single one. They, you, I – we are all part of the same body – the body of Christ. The Body that became flesh so God could be “God is with us”. The Body that breathed, laughed, and […]
