The image of Our Lady of Guadalupe in her basilica in Mexico City. I said a prayer in the basilica today for all those who sent me a request.

Goodness. Twitter. I follow a lot more Catholics there than I do on any other site and right now and most of them, or at least the most vocal ones, are really irritating me. You know, I get that there actually is plenty to discuss even at this early stage of the Synod. Enough has been said to get people either hopeful or worried. (And I do have my own opinions about what I’ve read. But I really don’t feel inclined to discuss them at this point and I know I’d stir a debate.) But it’s some people who are claiming to be among the most faithful Catholics who are getting nasty and even highly disrespectful. I’ve seen comments from some of them “mentioning” @Pontifex with insulting comments. Of course he’s not likely to see those comments. But clearly they want him to read them. I can’t imagine speaking that way to any Pope no matter how I felt about him! sigh

Well, at least the Catholics that I know IRL aren’t like this. Not to that extreme degree, anyway. I think if I want to stay optimistic about the church, I should just enjoy the nice people in my home parish and avoid spending too much time on the internet… Yeah. I’ll do that.

What is up with “thy,” “thou,” “thee,” and “thine”?

THIS is how you do grammar-nerdery, instead of policing people’s grammatical errors

This past summer my boyfriend saved a hummingbird from his garage. He’s been hesitant about this being on Reddit but I believe it deserves a chance in the spotlight
