Give Thanks with a Grateful Heart

Now that I got that awful song in your head.... hehe.

Thank you so much to all of you who made my birthday so special; Rarely have I felt so loved both in the presence of friends at my house and the messages I received. Wow this wretch is so blessed!!!

Today is the installation mass for Bishop Weurl, our new Archbishop here in DC. He is the Shepherd the Lord has chosen for us, and I hope that he will be humble, courageous and prepared for the enormous task that it is.

I'm hoping to get a seat since I sprained my ankle or did something funky to it yesterday playing soccer. shoooooot. NOT GOOD considering I'm leaving for WorkCamp tomorrow. Is there a patron saint of sprained ankles? Please pray for the 300+ teens that will be there; that they may encounter Christ in their service and our reflections and activities.

Still looking for a job. I want to teach high school religion/theology. I'm willing to move... anyone know of anything???? I thought this would be easy, but it's not turning out that way. There's a plan, right?

"For I know well the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for evil, to give you a future full of hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will hear you. You will seek Me and find Me; when you seek Me with all your heart, I will be found by you, says the Lord." -Jeremiah 29: 11-14

"May it not be a moment before the hour you have chosen."

"Sometimes it may seem to us that there is no purpose in our lives, that going day after day for years to this office or that school or factory is nothing else but waste and weariness. But it may be that God has sent us there because but for us Christ would not be there. If our being there means that Christ is there, that alone makes it worth while."
- Caryll Houselander

I like this one...thought you might, too!

Well if you want to move up north with me, I'll scope out the Fargo diocese for you! It's an excellent, orthodox, sound, wholesome area producing some informed Catholic youth - but perhaps you want more of a challenge then in the area of the students rather than in the weather? ; )
Prayin' for ya nonetheless!

I know some faithful young Catholic gentlemen who are looking for their future wives down here in Austin, Texas!
