On the eve of the second week of Lent

Spending the day cleaning my room and making tremendous archeological discoveries. I figure that if I can't become famous for my blogging, perhaps I can by finding the missing link before I lose it again under all my stuff. Now where did I last see it...

Found out today that the bishop who will be ordaining to the deaconate and the priesthood is being sued by a priest of his own diocese in an issue relating to the sexual abuse scandal. I feel more and more like Frodo Baggins wishing things were different, yet hearing Gandalf tell him - "So do all who live in such times, but it is not for them to decide - all we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us." Choice is certainly a powerful gift, though sometimes it may seem like a curse. Still, the example has been put before us - it is not what would Jesus do, it is what Jesus did and continues to do out of love. Maranatha.
