For those who still link to this blog, and those who happen upon it by chance, Christmas blessings to you and yours. May the peace of the Christ Child and His Holy Mother keep you in the coming new year.
Well, I never did get around to joining the Third Order, and at this point in time, I don't know that I will. First, I have to go back to school, whether I want to or not. I simply don't have the job flexibility that I need until I get this done and out of the way. Second, every time I think I'm ready to take the next step, I discover a new saint that draws me, just a bit, from the Carmelites. This year, it has been St Magdalene of Nagasaki and St. Nicholas of Tolentino, both Augustinians. So for now, I think it is best that I continue to pursue a life of prayer and forego becoming a tertiary.
I have decided to resume blogging, though probably not with the same frequency as before. And I will also be changing the name of the blog. The term "unprofitable servants" from Luke 17 has been stuck in mind from before Advent began, and so I will be going with that and doing a little work behind the scenes to update the site.
I look forward to the journey. Please keep me in your prayers and know that you are in mine.
