Celebrating the First Mini-Easter in Lent

Today is the first Sunday in Lent. Not of Lent, for Sundays are a celebration. The Sundays in Lent are apart from the penance of Lent. Does that make sense? Yeah, we Catholics are a complicated bunch!

Welcome to the second Sunday of the New Year. This is a very special Sunday indeed. Yes, it is the Lord’s Day, and that is always special. But it is also the first Sunday following the Epiphany, January 6.

All We Need is Love

Once again, the observance of Advent and the celebration of Hanukkah share the spot light. Last year the first night of Hanukkah and the first Sunday of Advent were the same day. This year the last Sunday of Advent and the first night of Hanukkah are joined.

Guardian Angels, Seared Scallops and Sunday Supper

Do you believe in Guardian Angels? Most people do. And this believe isn’t limited to people of faith or a particular religion. Nearly half of those who have never attended religious services or belong to a religious organization think angels exist.

Second Sunday in Lent and The Good Samaritan

Lent is a time of reflections, to acknowledge our sins, our transgressions, to make amends. It is a time to ask for the forgiveness, to rejoice in the resurrection and to prepare for the life of the world to come.

An Acknowledgement of Faith

There are times when two Feast Days, one fixed and the other moveable, come together on the same day. Do we celebrate both? Does one take precedence over the other? And if so, which one? Such is the case today.

Feast of Saint Joseph and 5th Friday of Lent

Christ the King Sunday Supper

Today is the Feast of Christ the King. Christ the King Sunday is recognized by both Catholic and Protestant Churches. That said, I can only share my Catholic understanding and perspective of the day.

Rosemary Pork Roast with Carrots

Not every Sunday equates to chicken, but Sundays gotta have something special. It’s the Lord’s Day after all. As Catholics, we don’t just attend Mass, the Mass is Celebrated. Life should be celebrated. I know, sometimes that’s a tall order. Sometimes there is so much pain and suffering you cannot help but wonder why.

Start Sunday Supper on Saturday Night

While I’ve been planning to share one of Hubby’s favorite dishes, I realized I needed to share it on a Saturday for a Sunday Supper. The roast needs to refrigerate overnight for the seasonings to truly blossom, and it takes all day to cook. Hence a Sunday Supper posting on a Saturday Share.

Aren’t crock pots and slow-cookers amazing? Great in the summer when you don’t want to heat up the house. Awesome in the winter when you want a delicious meal that is ready when you are.
