St. Paddy's Day

Happy St. Patrick's Day, especially from those of us who are Bannon, Burke, Cummings, Quigley, Irish, Egan, Graham, Hynes, McCarthy, Horan, McGreevy, Dougherty, McLaughlin, Caskin, Sullivan, Eustace, Tobin, McMullen, Lynch and many others that are hidden in mother's maiden names!

The green sweaters, blouses, T-shirts and sweatshirts abound today, which, when you consider we were founded by Germans and drew many members from the Polish community of Erie, is a sign of delightful ethnic intercelebrations.















Yesterday, Passion/Palm Sunday was beautiful here. The liturgy, especially the Liturgy of the Word, showed off our liturgists at their best.The interweaving of narration, music and dance expressions during the readings was "awesome."

May your Holy Week be just that, a time of unusual "holiness" for you...in whatever form that takes.

Here are four spirituality sites that I think have something to say...you may enjoy browsing, especially this week:
BeliefNet;
Spirituality and Health;
Chicago Sunday Evening Club;
Gratefulness.
