When I was trying to schedule posts for the week, I realized that Tuesday is Nov. 1, All Saints' Day, and I didn't want to have the day pass me by without some reflection and intention on my part. St. Rose of Lima is my namesake (middle name), and I chose St. Catherine of Siena as my confirmation name. A couple of years ago, yes years, I purchased this book in order to delve deeper into the life of one of "my" Saints.
It's one that has been on the old nightstand for quite some time. I began it. I dog-eared a few pages it's got a bookmark in it. I just didn't make much progress.
Today I rededicate myself to starting over and finishing this book before I read another. I've also got Fr. Alban Butler's Lives of the Saints to make part of my daily reading. I was so good about keeping up while teaching because I'd do it before work, but apparently something about motherhood makes me push these things aside. For what, I wonder. Blogging? Television? It's time for me to redirect my free time, and this is one small way I can do that and see the wonders God works through the amazing men and women who give their entire lives to him.
