7 Quick Takes Friday

1)  Some dear friends from my CRHP group committed to fast a meal today for my husband and son, and several of us carpooled down to our diocese's cathedral, St. Mary's, for the noon rosary and mass service to pray for my home situation.  It was made even more special by the unexpected fact that, this being the feast of the Chair of St Peter, our Bishop, Joe Vasquez, led the Mass. It was my first time to meet him, so I was somewhat star struck, I must admit!  We also saw one of our parish's Deacons who is working with my husband, who had stopped by for the mass as well. I am truly blessed by such special friends.

2)  The gift shop at the Cathedral had the neatest traditional liturgical calendars! WOW! They have everything you'd ever want to know, both the traditional feast days and beautiful artwork. They are made by the Seraphim Company.

3)  Watching "The 300" on TV. Talk about weird filming techniques! Interesting film, though--those Spartans sure were......spartan.......weren't they?

4)  Speaking of movies--I sure wish they would produce more Catholic-themed movies that were not dubbed into English or have subtitles in English.  With the subtitled ones, I can't even shut my poor bleary eyes for a second without missing something.  I am hoping to see more in English one day soon.

5) If you could go anywhere....where would you go?  A trip all alone, say? I think I would love to visit what used to be called the "Mountains of the Moon" in Africa, between Rwanda and Uganda, and see the mountain gorillas.

6)  I am so so tired.

7) I need just a small break, God, please.  Please, just a small one.


  1. #4 I bought "The Way" at WAlmart for $5 - I'm hoping it is as good as they say.

    #5 I'd like a day on a sunny, natural, empty Florida beach.

    re # 6 and 7: I'd invite you along!

    I've read your prayer requests below, and I will be praying fervently for your challenges. You are a precious child of God, and I pray he grants you a moment of rest today.

    Thank you for sharing, Kerry.
