Top Ten Ironic Catholic Reasons I Am Glad It's November

Picture source.
  1. Waiting for waiting (advent, that is). Poetic, isn't it.
  2. These previous months of comfortable Minnesota weather don't really speak to the universal human need for mortification. November weather: mission accomplished.
  3. All those dark Scripture readings leading to the Feast of Christ the King. It makes me feel positively Goth just going to Mass.
  4. Mystic Monk Coffee tastes better in November.
  5. If I surreptitiously wear a neck scarf to pray with (as in head covering) at some point during the day, my neck doesn't get nearly as sweaty.
  6. The new reality of abundant static cling is an awesome metaphor for sin.
  7. NaPraGoMo, baby.
  8. The "dark night of the senses" becomes kind of literal, in the upper reaches of the Northern Hemisphere.
  9. Shorn of the lovely turning leaves, the trees stick straight up in the sky, begging for light. Basically, my prayer life: and right outside my window.
  10. Speaking of turning a leaf: IC=compost=transformation. Hope so.
