Some more stuff people don't know about me...



Abridged version.
.
One of my favorite female performers and singers is Miss Piggy.  Seriously.
.
I'm devoted to John Paul II but I have trouble with the "Great" title - oy - and all that writing!
.
I can sing like Jack Jones - sort of a lounge singer to the unsophisticated -  but I can't play piano.  I'm especially good with the Love Boat theme, and surprisingly, I can take popular songs - rock, soul, hip-hop, what have you, and do it in a lounge singer manner - and it's danceable.  (Yes I can Mary J. Blige.)
.
I love Blessed Teresa of Calcutta but I get tired of hearing about her all of the time.  Gosh!  We know already!
.
I'm really handy around the house - like I can fix things.
.
I admire Scott Hahn.
.
Oh!  Oh!  Of all the people alive in the world today whom I believe is really great and a saint, it is Pope Benedict XVI - he outshines any saint or pope of the 20th century.  (Except for Pius X and Pius XII of course.)
.
Anyway - this is filler.  I'll be at adoration today - pray for me that I will not put up any barriers to the love that comes to us in Jesus Christ.  I will be praying for all of you too - by name - especially you!  (If you felt that - you know who you are.)

    I respect your opinion about Pope Benedect XVI, and I admire him greatly, but do you really think he outshines even St. Pius X and Pius XII?

  2. That Padre Pio guy gets talked about a lot too, ever notice?

    Pope John Paul II won't ever really be "the Great" because he had too big of a carbon footprint - all that travelling! Yikes!

  3. I admire Scott Hahn, too. It was his book, Rome Sweet Rome, that got me thinking I could actually do this conversion thing...and the rest is history.

  4. I'm glad I'm not alone with this: "love Blessed Teresa of Calcutta but I get tired of hearing about her all of the time. Gosh! We know already!"

    I feel the same about the Little Flower and Pope John Paul II. Nothing against them, of course; in fact, it has nothing to do with them--only the cult surrounding them. I feel guilty for saying it, but it's annoying.

    I also agree about Pope Benedict XVI. Completely.

  6. Anonymous - big gulp here - I wasn't thinking was I. I forgot about Pius X and Pius XII - so no - I have to take that back - but I think he will be right up there with them.

    This post was meant to be shallow anyway. :D

  8. Also - even though this post is meant to be shallow - everything is true - I think I only sound like Jack Jones to myself Belinda.

  10. Belinda - I know! I'm just jumping on the Terry's shallow bandwagon.
