1 - Jennifer's wonderful summary of wearing a veil at Mass. It's insightful and funny and my favorite part: It was at that moment that I realized that this exercise in head covering brought with it an important, and surprisingly difficult, opportunity for spiritual growth: to presume other people’s charity.
Also, I just may need to get me one of those infinity scarf veils. For reals, people, that thing is awesome.
2 - Rebecca Frech has a beautiful post about silence at Mass over at Ignitum Today. I've never attended a Traditional Latin Mass but this post has me thinking that it may just be the balm my soul is longing for in this hectic, loud, overwhelming season of life.
3 - A funny story from the home: Dora the Explorer is pretty much banned from my home because I find it annoying. Today, though, I told my daughter she could watch it. L ran to Ben exclaiming, "Mom said we can watch Dora!" Ben, in total shock and awe said, "Mom likes Dora now?" He then came to the kitchen to hear from the source that I really, truly was going to let them watch the show while I was home.
4 - The lovely Marie Miller. Don't know Marie? Well, she's a young Catholic musician - beautiful, funny, talented. She has performed at the past two Behold Conferences and will be returning in 2014. She has a new single and I just saw the new video that goes with it. Let me tell you, if you have a daughter, try to get her into Marie Miller's music. Marie is the kind of woman you want your girl looking up to as a role model. Seriously. Watch the video - her dress goes down to her knees!
