This post is going to be about that quote up above the picture of my delicious tea. It is going to be about 'The A Word'. Atheism....more

On Being Catholic: The Mystery of Faith

My 10-year-old son had a play date after school the other day and when the friend’s mom came to pick him up, she asked if we were in a rush to get my guy to CCD.“A lot of kids seem to go on Tuesdays,” she said.“Um, we’re taking a break from being Catholic right now,” I told her, and she laughed at my joke, but I still feel really guilty about the whole thing.It must be the Catholic in me....more
