Now days...

Being a little out of step.

I have a feeling that now days a person can become a saint just by living according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Nothing more heroic required.


  1. now days?
    i think it has always been that simple - or hard - to do.

    where did you find that old 3-D movie picture? and look at how they dressed to go to a movie date - man, have we lost it.

    those dudes had class!

  3. Uncle Jim - I cant remember where I found the 3-D photo - I had it in my file. I love that photo.

    Belinda - I really know what you are talking about with the kids - so shocking that Catholics should think 8 children are excesive - or even one child is excessive - hang in there! God bless - you are on the fast track to sainthood!

    Belinda, the world is anti-child, and unfortunately most Catholics are in step with the world. But there are many of us who are not, who try to follow the Church, and who ADORE children and babies! It used to be said that you can tell a devout Catholic because they love two things more than anything: babies and seminarians.

    Belinda, oh the animation your daughter did is really great! I left a comment--I think she should try to get this published, it would make a lovely children's book!

  8. This anti-child mindset has permeated everything, even my "saintly" Catholic aunts and uncles with big families themselves say things that make me wonder how much of the culture they have absorbed. I'd love to have more kids and have considered adoption, but the comments I hear about that from my secular MIL are so unkind!
