I originally planned to make a video for this, but then I realized how much I hated my voice on recordings haha.
Here I am typing out what I planned to say. :P
My journey toward “joining” the Tumblr Catholics was a very bizarre one, in my opinion at least.
What many of you might not know is that my blog didn’t start as a passionately Catholic one. Not even a Catholic one.
I wouldn’t say it was a secular blog, but it was just a collection of funny and interesting things I found here on Tumblr - perhaps, inappropriate funny and interesting things I found here on Tumblr.
I created posts that shouldn’t have been created.
I said things I probably shouldn’t have said.
Nevertheless, all of these things were the result of my desire to become “Tumblr famous” - but upon further reflection, I think it was more because of my desire to feel accepted somewhere.
I hear this word thrown around a lot while describing the Mass.
Let me be frank with you: It’s simply not possible. If it’s boring you, you need to read up on what’s actually happening, I’d say, because for me… Well:
When heaven meets earth and God is physically present in our space, in our world, that’s just not boring.
Not in Latin. Not in French. Not in Italian. Not in Spanish. Not in English.
Everything else is a minor detail… It’s okay to have a preference, but nothing’s worth dwelling on if it takes away from this fact; from the reality that you and everyone around you gets to partake in this amazing ceremony in which God meets you and literally comes to dwell within you.
“The next time you’re in church, or anywhere for that matter, and you’re feeling bored, don’t even ask yourself, ‘Why is this so boring?’ Let me give you a replacement question. Ask yourself, ‘Why am I not enraptured?’” - Fr. Stan Fortuna
(Yes, that’s my mom and I)
First off, I’d like to greet all of the mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day! There’s just something about mothers that makes the world go round, and I think that it’s only in their nature to do so. Mothers in themselves carry a special responsibility in the family that not even the dads do - they have the unique role of being a life giver and life bringer to their families and to the world.
In this way, how wonderful and fitting it is today to also honor and celebrate our Blessed Mother as being the perfect mother of all who brought into this world our Savior and Redeemer through her perfect cooperation with the Divine Will of God. Because really, where would we be without the humble obedience of the New Eve? And where would we be without her example?
Actually, after the Mass I went to today, I think I have a pretty good idea.
