“Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb!”
~ Elizabeth to Mary in Luke 1:42 (RSV)

Last night my wife and I received the Sacrament of Confirmation. We’re finally united with the Catholic Church!

(Jn 20:19-23)
On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, "Peace be with you."

When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord.

Jesus said to them again, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I send you."

And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and said to them, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained."

“I would rather die than do something which I know to be a sin, or to be against God’s will.”
~ Saint Joan of Arc

(Jn 21:15b-19)
Jesus said to Simon Peter, "Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Feed my lambs."

He then said to him a second time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" He said to him, "Yes, Lord, you know that I love you." He said to him, "Tend my sheep."

He said to him the third time, "Simon, son of John, do you love me?" Peter was distressed that he had said to him a third time, "Do you love me?" and he said to him, "Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you." [Jesus] said to him, "Feed my sheep."

"Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go."

He said this signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when he had said this, he said to him, "Follow me."

I was wondering last night, does anyone make a #FOSS #inkjet #printer that is fully documented and easily repairable? Most modern printers are cheap nasty things that break after about a year, so this would be a nice replacement. Also, fully FOSS would mean nonproprietary ink cartridges so easy refills are back too!

We finally hung an analog clock in our kitchen and for some reason that makes me quite happy 😊

So I brought on a new web developer for @rystedtcreative and he chose Skeletor as his avatar in our project management software.
I made the right choice haha

(Jn 17:20-26)
"I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in me through their word, so that they may all be one, as you, Father, are in me and I in you, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that you sent me.

And I have given them the glory you gave me, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may be brought to perfection as one, that the world may know that you sent me, and that you loved them even as you loved me.

Father, they are your gift to me. I wish that where I am they also may be with me, that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me before the foundation of the world.

Righteous Father, the world also does not know you, but I know you, and they know that you sent me. I made known to them your name and I will make it known, that the love with which you loved me may be in them and I in them."

Hey remember when all of the basic folks were saying "The death rate is super high! If you leave your house you just want people to die"?

Behond the actual numbers are finally showing that they were *wrong*. This thing is killing *less than 1% of those it infects* and the majority are elderly. In other words, exactly what all of us "conspiracy theorists" and "science deniers" have been saying all along.

Ya'll can take your lockdowns and stay home. Imma go grab a beer and breathe in someone's face now.
