"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Waking up to Cathy's Precious Moments Christmas...

Precious memories...

Few people realize what a huge fan of Precious Moments our blogger-buddy Cathy is. One year she even made a Christmas pilgrimage to the Precious Moments Chapel (pictured above) where she finally gave in and purchased her massive Precious Moments Nativity set, the central portion of it shown below. I ought to mention that it wasn't easy for her to give up her Hello Kitty Nativity - but that was the old Cath. (Knowing her love for the Precious Moments line of decorative figurines, we can now understand why Cath is always dressed in those billowing, chiffon, pastel-dresses at Mass.)



Wishing all of you a very happy Christmas day.

  5. I thought that top picture was some sort of joke until I clicked on the link.
    Oh, my fur and whiskers, I wish I hadn't clicked.

  6. Oh. my. Lawd.

    I think I just threw up a little in my mouth.

    Terry, I could have gone my entire life without knowing that there was a "Precious Moments" chapel.

    Oh. Ow. It hurts.
    Make it stop.

  7. Ter: I can't believe you told everyone! Dang it. Now I'll never be able to replace the figurines my cats broke. They'll be a big run on PM Nativity's now.

    Really, everyone has the Fontanini sets. I wanted to be unique.

    Sing me a song, make it better.

  8. Cath - I was so worried you were offended because I revealed this. I thought you might post that picture of me praying before your Nativity set last Chistmas. i'm glad you are not upset!
