The Passion and the Priesthood: Realizations

I’ve been reading the daily Mass readings each morning throughout Lent, along with various commentaries on the Scriptures for the day, and have been gaining some really wonderful insights.  But this week – Holy Week – is becoming very meaningful to me this year.  This is not due to anything great on my part, but…

I’ve got a CafePress Store (or 2)

And now for a bit of self-promotion.  I’ve got a couple of CafePress stores which you can find here and here. At the first link, you’ll find some things I’ve taken pictures of in the form of notecards, etc., but I just added some iPhone and iPod Touch cases.  Here’s a sample of something I’ve…
