Nicely Done!

We returned from a quick trip to Houston this past Tuesday evening and I am having a tough time getting back into the swing of things. School starts next Tuesday and it seems like we have a thousand things to do before then. Of course, catching up on the blogosphere is high on my list. As I made my first pass through my favorite blogs I was both humbled and tickled to see Rosemary has nominated me as a nice blogger.

“This award is for those bloggers who are nice people; good blog friends and those who inspire good feelings and inspiration. Also for those who are a positive influence on our blogging world. Once you’ve been awarded please pass on to seven others whom you feel are deserving of this award”.

Rosemary definitely deserves this award and like Rosemary, I would include Michelle on my list as well.

Seven more day brighteners are:

Barb at SFO Mom

Kitchen Madonna

Sarah at Just Another Day of Catholic Pondering

Julie D. at Happy Catholic

Jen at Et Tu?

Smockmomma and MamaT at the Summa Mamas

Kelly Clark at The Lady in the Pew

Feel free to post your own list of bloggers that spread a little niceness through cyberspace.

Hi Catholic Mom! Has Houston dried up any from all the rain!?

PS: Forgot to tell you that we went to the zoo on our visit last month and nearly died of heat exhaustion. Three of us got headaches and the others were just worn out for the rest of the day. Why did we pick the zoo on a late July day!!??

Thought of you as we passed Rice U.

Parent Letter from a Catechist

I am going to be teaching seventh grade CCD this year. We do most of the preparation for confirmation during this year since Confirmation is usually scheduled for the fall of the eighth grade year.I have composed a letter to the parents to try and keep them active in their children's religious education. I thought I would post it here and get your feedback before I send it out in a couple of weeks.

I am privileged to be your child’s seventh grade CCD teacher for the 2006-2007 school year. This is a very important year. We will focus on your child’s preparation for confirmation. Of course, you have already been preparing your child for this sacrament for many years. You are the primary catechist for your child. You show how important your Faith is by making Mass attendance a top priority and by family prayer.

Confirmation is one of the Sacraments of Initiation. It is a beginning. It is not a graduation. This year we will work to solidify the foundation of your child’s Catholic Faith.…

Dispelling the Myth of the Travel Dispensation

One of the fun things about having a site meter on my blog is I can see which posts garner the most attention. I can also see how people find my blog. One of the most read posts from my two years of blogging is this one that discusses finding Mass while traveling. I would like to think this post is so popular because it is so well written. The truth of the matter is that it generates so much traffic because I use the words “travel dispensation for Mass”—as in “There is no such thing as a travel dispensation for Mass.” I would guess that nearly a dozen times every week, someone googles “travel dispensation for Mass” and finds my blog. I wonder how many of these folks are poor souls trying to assuage their Catholic guilt with evidence of a justification for missing Mass while on the road.

I know that when I tell my seventh grade CCD students that attending Mass every Sunday is a commandment (one of the top ten!) and not just a pretty good idea they are amazed. Missing Mass has become so …

United Breaks Guitars

This guy is really talented and what a creative way to get your message across. I think he captured the "indifferent employee" perfectly. They don't just work for airlines. I think I ran into them at Walmart on Friday!
