(Jn 15:16-17)
It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

This I command you: love one another.

Day 170: O Mary, you who called yourself the handmaid of the Lord, teach me how to consecrate all my strength and life to His service.

The road to perdition is wide due to popular demand.

Msgr. Charles Pope has a piece on this topic today. His reflections are always good.

Prayers for my father-in-law please. He's been sent to the emergency room by his cardiologist.

Have you ever noticed that the people who scream the loudest that religion should stay out of politics, generally treat their own political viewpoint like a religion? So what they're really saying is that their religion doesn't need competition.

And, well, this was a good day for that thought: "if we have done all that depends on us as best we can, we should not fear that our work will be wasted; sooner or later, in one way or another, the Lord will always give us to drink."

Yeah, I'm just now picking this back up. I figure if I keep doing this for a few years, reading the correct day whenever I can, eventually I'll manage to read the whole thing.

Day 145: O Lord, make me generous and faithful in Your service; grant that I may never put an obstacle to Your action in me.

Look at someone, in the eyes, and smile at them today.

Even if they don’t smile back—those are the ones who need it the most.

My singing stuff over the past week and weekend went pretty well, then I basically slept all the rest of Sunday, then I went back to work today, despite that not being nearly enough sleep.

Totally worth it.

Right now I'm drinking Republic of Tea Orange Ginger Mint with a bit of honey in it, trying not to talk unless absolutely necessary, and thinking calm thoughts.

So tonight is the night I sing the Sandi Patty pop hit Via Dolorosa, from an ambo in an historic Episcopal church, while wearing a cassock-style choir robe.

All the incongruity is messing with my head.

That's before I point out that as a soprano, the fact that the climax of the piece is a long, loud B4 is also the source of a bit of anxiety. That note and I, we don't get along.
