Side Note

Just a few thoughts to appease the blogophants.

I will be posting at length shortly. :)  (Like that one?) I'm back in school and figuring out a brand new schedule. Bear with me a little while longer.

In the meantime, keep the Catholic church in your prayers. I get slightly overwhelmed when I really think about John Paul II being gone. I plan on posting about him as soon as I get a chance. What an amazing, courageous, resilliant, wonderful, godly man. I could go on and on.

I am hoping that God uses his life and death to ignite a spark in the hearts and lives of observant Catholics and Christians everywhere, especially in Italy. The church over there was full of ritual and tradition (which I certainly do not oppose), however, the life had gone from most of it. They were almost involuntary actions, from what I observed. I have a great feeling that things might be different from here on out--those same activities carried out with a little more expectancy and desire to see something of the miraculous occur each time. I hope so.
