It has come to our attention that Monday, Feb 4th--sandwiched in between the Super Bowl and Super Tuesday elections and caucuses--has been dealing with diminished self-esteem issues.
"I'm just not at all super," said Monday, calling in to The Ironic Catholic offices at Saturday dusk. "The only thing I'm good for is hangover recovery and last minute campaign commercials. It's not like people like me much anyway. Woohoo, I get to go to work today. Big whoop. And if you're going to be down, at least this Wednesday you Catholics get to wear cool ashes and do the goth look at the same time. But Mondays--people just count the minutes until I end."
May we suggest that everyone take the sorrow of Monday seriously, and embrace Monday in all its goodness, just as St. Francis kissed the leper. Monday has its own dignity and Monday is worth it. The Christian life is about living for today, and today is (unfortunately) Monday. But Monday can be the day the Lord returns. Monday can be the day you are called to deeper discipleship. Remarkably, Monday is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Brothers and sisters in Christ, say it with me: Happy Super Monday!
Monday sincerely thanks you.
