Angels, Therese and MORE angels!!!

So I stayed home this Monday morning - distress in the lower tract, they used to call it..... (remember the old tv commercials - the people standing at the bus stop in the rain - and a guy with an umbrella comes into view of the camera and he says, "I'd like to talk to you about diarrhea" - out pops the bottle of pink stuff....) but I digress..... made it to classes and then headed home, missing, thereby, the faculty meeting.... only to return to church for a choir rehearsal - with one other person managing to attend.....

Anyway, the list of music for our dailies is listed here (nothing for Wednesday, because that's my hallowed day off - and even though I've chosen music for it in the past, it seems that what I've chosen is summarily dismissed... so why spend - or waste - time on that day, then?)

Tuesday - St. Michael et al
Hymn - Angels and Ministers - Slane (from Hymnal 1940)
Introit and Communion to Tone II
Organ - Voluntary on Slane - Paul Manz

Thursday - St. Therese of the Child Jesus

Bah, TODAY is St. Michael's feast. I totally blew it on this one. St. Michael is such a wonderful patron for my boys, you knew, smiting Satan and all that stuff. They love looking @ art that depicts him.

I know for sure, we're having a feast for the Guardian Angels as if it weren't for them, I think my kids would have died a long time ago with their fearlessness.

Hope you are feeling better soon.

Thanks, Paula.

Were it not for our guardian angels we'd probably all have been goners long ago.

Fearlessness is a great gift for children....it keeps the angels busy doing God's bidding!!!!
