What happens in heaven when we pray…

February 16, 2012

I dreamed that I went to Heaven and an angel was showing me around. We walked side-by-side inside a large workroom filled with angels. My angel guide stopped in front of the first section and said, ‘ This is the Receiving Section. Here, all petitions to God said in prayer are received. I looked around […]

Jesus would ride the bus

February 3, 2012

Over the last few weeks I’ve had to opportunity to experience something thats been quite humbling… To save money, I decided I’d take the bus all the way from Knoxville to Ottawa, Ontario to visit my daughter & grand-daughter (and of course Jeff, my daughter’s wonderful husband!).

Trinity, Mary & Salvation

January 11, 2012

Of course this week-end has been the best so far!  Funny, I’ve been hearing the same comment after every class!  It seems like each one is “a hard act to follow” but somehow it always is.  Deacon Tim (or whoever those powers may be), certainly have chosen great instructors/leaders for this Aspirant program. Saturday night […]

Philosophy – with Fr. Bede

Procrastination…

November 7, 2011

Méa Culpa..méa culpa! Procrastination is not one of my flaws.  I’m usually a “get ‘er done” person.  My rule of thumb is to get it done right away.  What ever it is.  Somehow after Scott’s second class, things sort of happened and although posting was on my “to do” list,  I just never got to […]
