Holy Week in Your Parish...

So how was the Triduum celebrated in your parish? Everything by the book? Creative? Did you even bother attending?

A positive celebration that left you with a sense of gratefulness for the sacrifice of Jesus and the joy of his Resurrection?

There were a few glitches in my parish but almost everything flowed as it was supposed to... and the reception afterward was wonderful...

So, what's the rush? Sainthood for John Paul II

John L. Allen, Jr. of the National Catholic Reporter has an interesting article about the upcoming beatification of John Paul II. You can find the article here.

Is sainthood too politicized?

Any comments?

Suppose our Bishop Retired...

I got to thinking about our Bishop's retirement and am wondering if any of our diocesan priests are "bishop-material". I realize that the decision comes from Rome and would probably not be one of our own priests but it is an interesting question nonetheless.

Who do you think would make a good bishop and why?
