Lent is rapidly coming to a close! I can't believe we are already almost at Easter Sunday. Time is flying.
We've finally made a major Lenten donation to SQPN, producers of the best Catholic podcasts on the net. I guess if you listened to every show that they put out, you'd spend all your time plugged into your iPod or at your computer. My favorite is Catholic in a Small Town, a show hosted by a young Catholic couple raising three kids in small town Georgia. They are quite hilarious. In their latest episode, they talk about buying ten chicks for their sons for Easter, along with the largest bag of feed ever.
Also, we received another Lenten appeal from the DC Archdiocese, so we are writing them a check as well. Which reminds me of one thing from the weekend in San Francisco. When we got to the cathedral of St. Ignatius, we look in the pew and found envelops for the SF diocesan fund drive. Yikes! Luckily it was Palm Sunday so there was too much liturgy for another appeal to be made. It was a close call, though.
Tonight, we can't make it to Holy Thursday Mass because Jacob has been throwing up all morning. He's on a mostly liquid diet right now and seems to be better, though cranky. His 18-month appointment is tomorrow at 9 a.m. The doctor's assistant said that they'd do the physical and maybe defer the immunization shots if Jacob doesn't seem up to it. Say a prayer!
