The Birds and the Bees

Ah, spring. When the birds and the bees isn't just figurative.

"Mom, look at those birds. One is jumping on top of the other one!"

Works of Mercy

As part of our Lenten work, the kids and I have been memorizing the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. It is probably a vain hope, but in my fantasies, I imagine that enough repetitions of "Bear wrongs patiently," will rub off.

As I struggle to force a screaming, flailing toddler into a shirt and pants, I wonder: is clothing the naked still an act of mercy if the naked don't want to be clothed?
