Careful thinking about the spirituality of administration is just one of the gifts Garrido offers #Catholic leaders. She identifies and reflects on 12 habits administration calls us to. Among the list are both the expected (trust, integrity, breadth of vision) and the surprising (humor, agape, embracing death). For each habit she also identifies a spiritual companion from the Church‘s history who embodies that particular aspect of administration.

I'm currently teaching a course on the #Trinity for deacon candidates in our diocese. This week we're covering the Trinity in the liturgy and I'm struck again by the rich theological language and insights of the prayers of the Mass. #Catholic #liturgy

#LetsGetLost

One of my all time favorite series: Lost. One of my all time favorite characters: Sawyer. Not in the least because he reads all the time. And okay, he‘s got the looks as well 😜

Kalalalatja Loved Lost, and definitely #TeamSawyer! 🙌 (edited) 3w
BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja Yay 🙌. Great outcome by the way of your national elections. You took care of populism. Very good!! 3w
Kalalalatja I know, I‘m so happy! Although, Mette Frederiksen, who‘ll most likely end up as Prime Minister, and her party have an immigration policy I just can‘t get behind and aren‘t very ambitious regarding climate change, so I‘m hoping the other parties on the left will pull her in the right direction 🤞 3w
BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja It is so much better than in other parts of Europe. I wonder how the immigration policy will work out. It sounds very rigid but then again, they seem to want to invest much in integration programmes too, if I understand correctly. I will look closely if and how this works out! 3w
Kalalalatja I know, Denmark isn‘t the worst by a long shot! But we stopped taking quota refugees a couple of years ago, going against the UN human Rights convention. So I‘m hoping that will change, and focus will be on integration instead of sending immigrants and refugees home as soon as possible. 3w
BarbaraBB @Kalalalatja I hope so too. Let Denmark be an example of an alternative for populism in Europe. And yes with a focus on integration and the climate. I hope you‘ll succeed! 🧡 3w

Prepping for a course I'm teaching on the Trinity and reminded again what a gift this book (all three volumes, really) is. Pope Benedict's reflections always open up new avenues for deepening my understanding of and relationship with Jesus. #JesusChrist #Catholic #BenedictXVI #pope

True Confessions: A Novel | John Gregory Dunne
post image

It wasn‘t until I read the dedications page (for Dorothy Burns Dunne, Joan Didion, Quintana Roo Dunne) that I realized this was Didion‘s husband! But it has motivated me to commit myself to this somewhat complicated read. Dunne‘s writing style is unique and he moves rapidly through dialogue and multiple POV‘s, requiring my full attention 🧐 Hoping I can get into the rhythm and enjoy this one since it‘s my MIL‘s book club pick!

Reviewsbylola Wow, I didn‘t realize that. And also, your blurb has me worried that I‘ll hate this. 1mo
emilyhaldi I‘m almost halfway @Reviewsbylola and so far it‘s 10% about the murder and 90% about the business dealings of the 2 MC brothers- one a priest, the other a cop. Some of the commentary is funny but a lot of the content is 😴 1mo

Rev. Peter Laws (aka “The Sinister Minister”) liked a picture I posted on my Instagram of me in a bathing suit. *Maybe* I should be weirded out by that but I immediately did a finger-waggle dance, instead. I also captioned it with a stray musing about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; Tbh, he was probably responding to that. 😅 ANYWAY, I was combing through his insta & found a rec I missed for the tagged book. Could be terrible. Could be awesome.

Meaw_catlady Love this pic! You look great! 😊 1mo
LibrarianRyan On Monday I took my mom to get new glasses. The first pair to catch her eye were these nice metallic blue ones. They were awesome. Ahhhh, mom I‘m pretty sure those are kids glasses. Mom:what makes you think that. Me: the ninja turtles on the ear bands. 😁 🐢 (edited) 1mo

monalyisha @LibrarianRyan I hope she bought them, anyway. (jk; I know they probably wouldn't have fit her face. My husband & I have this problem all the time with bedsheets. We always like the kids patterns but they usually only come in twin. Life's so hard. Haha.) 1mo
monalyisha Thanks @meaw_catlady! 😻 1mo
LibrarianRyan @monalyisha yes. The kids sheets are just so much more fun. 1mo
