I love 'The Thin Line of Sanctity'. It is very thin. Pray for prudence; pray to be a good listener because often time we can’t quite see where that line is. It’s hard to walk on an invisible tight rope without someone leading you. And when you think you can do it all by yourself you're blind without even knowing it, which means it's time to pray. Ask for His Hand always and forever.

'The Goose Girl' and 'The Twelve Months' are two of my favorite fairytales.

You look at a full moon and think of the Eucharist.
You read the abbreviation "St" and think of "saint", not "street".
When you see a CD with the letters "DRE" written on it, and instead of the hip-hop artist, you think "Director of Religious Education".
Fridays in Lent are challenging. (As they should be.)
You're appalled when friends have birthday parties on Good Friday (though, admittedly, it's tough being a Lent baby).
When traveling, it's exciting trying to find the local Catholic church to attend.
It's annoying, when text messaging, if your phone's predictive text feature takes FOREVER to supply the ackronyms "Fr" or "Sr" when typing the name of a priest or nun.

This Sunday I participated in my first walk for any cause whatever. For most of my adult life I’ve understood intellectually the tragedy of abortion, but it wasn’t until recently that my heart began to ache for the women and babies that cry out for help every single day in this country.
Jennifer Fulwiler* speaks very beautifully about her conversion from being a pro-choice activist to being a pro-life advocate. I appreciate her sensitivity and love towards young women. She gives several insights that I hadn’t thought of before and for anybody wrestling with these issues this is a very good place to begin unravel the true nature of what we call ‘abortion’. To listen to what she has to say go to http://www.conversiondiary.com/2010/10/why-i-went-from-pro-choice-to-pro-life-audio.html
Jennifer Fulwiler writes @ www.conversiondiary.com and is a smart, funny, Christian writer who always brightens my day when she has a new entry.
You know you’re a Catholic GEEK when:
1) You get home at 3am on a Friday night because you went to Mass and decided to stay and chat with a girlfriend about God, chastity, and how Cardinal Sean’s* voice is so deep he sounds like Santa Claus.
2) 4th of July Fireworks make you think of Pentecost.
3) You know where the ‘religious’ section is in every Barnes and Nobles in your area.
4) You have Pope John Paul II as your desktop background.
5) You look for a “Which kind of religious sister or nun would you be?” Quiz on the Internet and upon finding none, get exasperated because the Internet isn’t meeting your entertainment needs. *
