7 Quick Takes Friday CONFESSIONS OF A CATHOLIC MUTT - March 21, 2014 Somehow I managed a typo in the title so that it originally read "2 Quick Takes". I guess we're going to be taking REALLY quick today. 2) How is your Lent going? Mine has been sort of low key. Not that it's bad to be low key; it's kind of nice. Things are a little quieter and there are little things that are noticeably different, but it's nothing huge. I like it. It seems to strike a nice balance. 3) I probably shouldn't joke that I have a tapeworm, but I do joke about it. (I ...http://catholicmutt.blogspot.com/2014/03/7-quick-takes-friday_21.html

Abstinence CATHOLIC SENSIBILITY - March 17, 2014 Okay, so I have a few questions about the Australians considering a restoration of year-round Friday abstinence from meat .

According to the all-wise Wikipedia, some tuna is pink. Did you know that? In any case, it was delicious! When the cook came back, I told him, in an atrocious mixture of English, Spanish, Latin and Italian, that not eating meat on Fridays is supposed to be penance; but not this fish he served me! I don't think he got much of that, except he saw I ...http://frmartinfox.blogspot.com/2014/03/dinner-in-rome.html

Our mother wrote songs of praise which she used in her own personal prayer and worship. She also shared these songs with her family, "prayer group" and "Healing Light Community." After she died our father, along with a few friends, grouped our mom's songs into a book called "Peace and Joy".

Lent With a Limited Diet JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - March 7, 2014 I can't fast during Lent. I couldn't fast before because of this hypoglycemic-type illness that I inherited from my mom, but I really can't fast these days because I need the calories. I am medically excused from fasting... and I'm actually also excused from abstaining from meat (as I was last year) because chicken is one of the few things I can eat without problems. Trust me, I asked a priest last year (I've had the ...http://catholicnerdwriter.blogspot.com/2014/03/lent-with-limited-diet.html

I had a tradition of going out to eat with my old debate mentor, Alex Prichard, on Friday of the tournament.

Real men pray. Let's talk about why. ...http://fatherdavidbirdosb.blogspot.com/2014/03/ash-wednesday-and-lent.html
