Okay, so I went to the evening Mass at my parish and I got there early so I could prepare, you know, evening prayer, rosary, look over the readings of the day, but I noticed that there were no other cars around and I thought, Ruh roh, I’ll bet they only had Mass this morning, I’ll check and see if the door is locked, and it was. (Deep breath.) So I got back in the car and looked at the clock and got out my phone (remembered to take it this time and it’s a good thing!) and checked the website of the next closest parish (which is NOT close, lemme tell ya, well, actually, the next closest had started their Mass at 5pm so that didn’t help, so I had to go to the next next closest parish), and there was an evening service at that one, it’s big because it’s closer to the city, but that means it’s far away from where I live and far away from my parish. So I lead-footed it, er, I mean, I casually non-chalantly and oh-so-very-slowly–alright, alright, I lead-footed it all the way to that 6pm Mass. And got there with a few minutes to spare and found a parking place near the front door.
I almost passed out in the parking lot from the shock.
After Camp NaNoWriMo is over, I promise I’ll get back to writing something for the blog, I will, no, I mean it, something about one of the gazillion books I’ve been reading. About some of the issues facing us as Catholics. Something!
Thank you for visiting and I hope you had a happy Easter and that your Easter season will be blessed and grace-filled. Peace be with you! :)

Look at this photo gallery from the Chrism Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Louis. No wonder they call that place “the Rome of the West”!
