This morning while I was waiting for my ride for Mass someone in our apt complex fell down and hit his head cause it was slippery out cause of the black ice and I said are you ok and he said yes so after that I prayed for him so he won't have a headache or have his head open up cause of the fall.

emoticon for the info, Nell! I think some of the knowledge as to why we do things was lost in the shuffle of VatII... but the young people(as well as us oldsters!) are re-discovering the beauty that is within our liturgical cycles.
I had a different Thanksgiving... DH woke up with a gout flare and could not walk. Since we planned on going out for the main meal, I was not prepped for a Thanksgiving meal at home. I gave him his meds, which knocked him out; and when he finally felt like moving a bit, he said he wanted chili to eat. So I made chili. This was the first time in my life I didn't have a traditional meal. Sort of forced me to realize what the holiday is all about. I am grateful I have a DH who knows me, loves me, and depends on me. We have a pantry of plenty. We can use our brains to figure out what to do. I had the opportunity to read and ponder about what Thanksgiving means to me. I never had to get dressed and just chilled the whole day. I sat with DH and watched TV... I was totally present for him. I allowed myself to just spend the day thanking God for everything, and appreciating the moment.
So, perhaps it was a different day, but it was a good day!
May God be praised for His provision and His love!
BTW, DH is better today. Still in some pain, but the foot looks better and meds are working!
I hope everybody has a nice holiday weekend!
Happy Advent!

You don't really "celebrate" the new year. It starts in purple with Advent, and was traditionally a time of contemplation, sort of Lent Light. According to the liturgical kalendar, the Christmas season was from Christmas Eve until Epiphany. There has been a cultural inversion of celebrating Christmas from Black Friday (hardly on the liturgical calendar) through Christmas, then it's over.

In the old days (pre VatII), First Advent was a Semidouble, Sunday of First Class, the other Sundays were Semidouble Sundays of the Second Class, and there were Ember Days during the fourth week. Christmas was Double of the First Class with a privileged Octave 3. Anyone else old enough to remember all that stuff?

Does anyone do anything to celebrate the new liturgical year? i have always heard the expression but thought only about it when the vestment colors changed or when the mass music changed.

Yesterday was my very first Mass and I really loved it and on planning on to go back every Sunday. I can't wait to tell my friend who picks me up for class on Mondays to pick me up every Sunday. I asked her if I did fine and she said yes but still learning and like I said I'm loving it every minute. Can't wait for class tonight so I can tell some of the teachers that I went.

Didn't see the video, but had a wonderful and blessed opportunity yesterday. The relics of St. Maria Goretti were at a nearby parish. Hubby and I went in the afternoon. There was a video narrated by a priest about her life and death and then the viewing itself. Very moving. While in line and afterwards I prayed my novena rosary plus some personal prayers as I had not been to this church before. Each of us received a holy card that had become a tertiary relic - one for her and one for the man who murdered her. I also took two of my rosaries and touched them to the reliquary so they have become tertiary relics also. It was quite a moving experience. As we were leaving, the lines to venerate were being stopped temporarily as the Archbishop was coming to say mass. After the mass, veneration would continue until 11 PM. I came away feeling very peaceful.

When all your desires are distilled, you will cast just two votes: to love more and to be happy.

Sorry I haven't been here but when to my brother's and my mom's place last Wed morning and didn't come home until yesterday. I was so tired I didn't even have time to take a shower or shave and wash my hair and I went to be at 10:30 and didn't get up until 8:30 that is how tired I was. Cause when I go over to my mom's and brother's place I do a lot and sleeping on the couch don't help at all. I'll be going back next month if my brother Mike wants me. But good news I didn't gain a pound there.
Sure glad to be back home for a while.

My church had an All Souls Day vigil mass last night, but I didn't like it very much. I can't get used to white vestments for mourning. I miss the old All Souls masses we used to do downtown: black vestments, unbleached candles, catafalque draped in a purple pall, solemn Requiem Mass by Tomas Luis de Victoria sung by the choir. Few churches go to that expense now.

Doesn't your church have more than one Mass on Sunday? We have the Saturday night Vigil (I bless the church for allowing that!), 3 Sunday morning Masses, and a 5pm Sunday Mass for those who were too hungover to make it Sunday morning. It is surprisingly full, and geared to younger people since those are the ones who have the hardest time getting up on Sunday after a fun Saturday night.

on saturday we went to the old house to clean. 6 hours in the car and 5 hours of cleaning, mostly heavy scrubbing. i was so exhauseted on saturday night. i went to bed at 11 pm. i woke up to use the bathroom about 7. i figured i could sleep a little longer before 830 mass or 2 hours longer for 1030. i feel back aasleep till 1130 i did not mean to miss mass, but i was obviously exhausted.

oin he bright side i caught up on my daily devotions book. when i misss a day, it is hard to get back on track, but if i work a day ahead, it is easier

I had to leave church early. After communion I tried to get back to my pew, but another woman had gone and knelt there, right next to my pocketbook and my husband. She was very wide so I couldn't even squeeze in. I got my husband and we stood in the back until the sacrament was installed in the tabernacle, then left. I have never had that happen before.

I'm finished with preparing my potato salad now it's chilling. My back is in a bad way, I have an annual at the GP if it's still hurting I'll have him look or let me know what might be wrong.

Some insperation from St. Thérése of Lisieux, also known as the Little Flower:
Be faithful to the duties of your state in life. Do every task, even the smallest, with love and good will. No task is too small or insignificant to do well, for love of God and of others.

i find i need to keep her example in mind more often.

Yes, Nell, I'm a hairdresser. for 40 years! It is my vocation. I wouldn't want to be doing anything else. I think I am fitting in well at the new salon. My clients who have visited love it. Here is a picture of "my space". It is a bigger area than it looks. My cabinet is to the left. I'm having to get used to working out of my "cart" again. Adjusting won't take long at all. I think by this afternoon I'll be in the flow of things.

Congrats on the new location, Corgi! I assume you are a hairdresser. I have been with my hairdresser for 36 years, ever since she got out of school, and followed her to several locations. She also has a home salon, and I'll go there, too, even though it's a bit of a drive. She is worth it! It's easier to find a new doctor than a new hairdresser.

emoticon emoticon We finally have had rain!!! Thanks be to God!
The grass in the pastures will not catch up now, but there will be more than we had... I feel for my neighbors and how they have to feed their cattle, horses. There won't be much hay to roll...
Perhaps my grass my turn green again? Almost 4 months dryness...
Because of working I missed just about all of the Pope's visit. I DVR'd some things on EWTN, so I can get a taste of his visit. Going to ride the recumbent bike as I watch. DH says he watched most of the days. Some of it goes over his head, but I pray that the Holy Spirit will use whatever he heard/saw to teach him. I have to leave DH in God's hands...
I begin working at the new salon tomorrow. The old place will be demolished by October 30. I am glad the person I rented from was able to find a spot to move her salon to. It's not in an area convenient to my clients, so I chose to leave and relocate to a place that is about a mile or two from 95% of my clients. ALL of them are thrilled! I'm in a shopping center that is fantastic! There is a bakery that has grain free pastries...LOL! How cool is that!?!
Change can be daunting, but I enjoy the challenges it brings. I was given this new opportunity, and I am trusting the Lord to grant me the graces I need to make it work well.
Through all of the changes and rearranging, I stayed true to my plan, and I even lost a few pounds. I've gotten a good bit of exercise in with moving and packing. Throw DH's surgery into the mix, and I have to give God praise for getting me through it all with some sanity!
I'm hoping to get back into the Spark of things soon. Have house-care to catch up on, and bookwork, too. Taking it one day at a time emoticon Everything will get done!
I hope everyone has a good week! Spark it!

Did anyone watch THE POPE say MASS tonight at MSG in NYC? WE DID......


OMG!!!!!! It was so BEAUTIFUL! We wished we could have been there!
What an HONOR for those 20,000+ people.....to attend Mass said by the POPE!

It was so crowded, & it must have been a NIGHTMARE trying to get out of NYC after Mass was over; BUT......I think it would have been worth it!!!!!! emoticon

I'm hypothyroid, too. I have to take one pill a day for the rest of my life. Problem is that I can't eat or drink anything for one hour after I take it, so if I want my coffee first thing in the morning (need is more like it), I have to take it when I get up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. My sister has to take it, too, and neither of us are overweight. The doc found it in bloodwork over a few years.

I have to deal with a crappy hubby, too. He has always been a spoiled child, but since his strokes he has gotten worse, and it won't get better. But I promised to love him in sickness and in health, and in old age it's a lot of sickness.

The weather was nice this week. it went by fast and i did not accomplish as much as i wanted. i am dealing with a crabby stressed out hubby. there is a lot of drama going on and he does not handle it the best. i am struggling to be empathetic, especially when he starts ranting.

At the condo this morning, one guy was so belligerent that we had to call the cops. He has a reputation with the police and the towing company, who said they wouldn't tow him unless a cop was present. Ah the drama! One man actually said "Don't you know who I am?" And he was really angry when we laughed at him. Fortunately, most people were understanding and did the right thing. The few who are a problem take up so much energy that it's easy to forget it's just a few.

Another beautiful day today. I'll be over at the condo to help with the paving project and all the misery attendant to that. Lots of walking, though.

Alf, up here the beach communities make all their money during the summer months, at the cost of traffic, crowding, etc. I heard someone say once that he wished he could figure out a way to get the money without the people. The beach off-season starts here sometime in October. Then they all head down your way, Alf!

Next week the church gets back to its regular schedule of clubs and classes and noon daily masses. The priests are back from vacation, the choir will reassemble. It's sad to see summer come to an end, but I'm always happy to see the excitement of a new season at church.

The church kalendar begins with First Advent, the secular calendar with January 1. In the real world, though, the new year begins when all the kids go back to school.

I want to go to church every Sunday...I will try, I do go to monastery sometimes but, I prefer the TLM mass, the church I go to is kind of far and the monastery is closer. emoticon

I just keep remembering it is a mortal sin not to go to mass.. emoticon

Where did the Summer go?
School is back in session, Church programs are beginning again.
Let's Spark the coming months, and give praise to God for new beginnings!

Step into the unknown with confidence! Trust that in the darkness of that first step there will either be something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly!
Nothing tastes as good as living with less pain feels!
