Seems like a long time since I’ve really blogged. Meh, its summer right?
Some great personal news first: As of August 3rd I will have paid off all of my credit card debt. Yes I had tons of credit card debt from my, ahem, oh so responsible college years. Well, one of those companies actually owes me money now. Oh the irony.
In other news, I’m buying a Mitsubishi Galant. New for me as they say, it is a 2002. The thing is beautiful. In even more irony my car payments are equal to the combined card payments I was making. Funny how that works eh?
A kind lady from my parish who lives just minutes from my house has offered to drive me to daily Mass in the mornings. This means I have the opportunity to get a daily dose of the traditional liturgy. The past couple of days has been so much more fulfilling than the local “new mass” parish, although I haven’t completely stopped going there either. On the days I can’t wrestle myself out of bed in time for the early TLM Mass I will happily attend the ordinary form.
I could come up with several funny analogies as to the difference in attending the TLM daily and the OF daily, but I won’t because it would be improper. However one of the benefits I will describe to you is the fact that in my TLM parish we have great stained glass windows (which aren’t as nice in the OF parish) and seeing the early morning sun shine through them produces a great effect. There is confession every morning before Mass as well and Rosary afterwards. Its like a total package inside of the hour.
My good friend from college, Jarred, is getting married on Friday and he’s asked me to lector. So I’ll be gone the next couple of days to Jersey.
