Congrats to the bloggers...

...who were ordained or took first vows ('tis that season!). I know I'm getting old, since I've been around long enough to follow the journey of two young bloggers: now Fr. Mike, at The Night Is Passing! was ordained to the priesthood in late June. Sr. Brittany Harrison, who blogged at Into the Deep for a number of years (but has since ended the blog and transferred to FB), made her first vows as a Salesian sister last week.

It really is a privilege--even on blogs, or especially on blogs?--to see people struggle, laugh, and dance through this life. Vocation stories are especially touching, because people are honest about what life is: a call from God to love Him, and with him, love others. Both Fr. Mike and Sr. Brittany have great senses of humor and a love for God, and I wish them all the best.

Congratulations to the new priest and the new sister. IC, when I take my vows as a hermit, will you come to the ceremony? That would mean a lot to me. Don't worry, you have over a year to think about it. :-)

Wow, Stephen, I'm not sure. Invite me, OK? But given what I expect will be happening next summer (adoption), I don't think the time is right, and the money is always difficult. But invite me. You never know!
