We’re now a school car line family (yay!). Thanks to the movie Mr. Mom, Lisa’s making connections between car line rules and the Mass.
While we all have a role in welcoming people into our homes, it seems some people are empowered to do so in a special way, doesn’t it? People who have this gift, or charism, are energized by the very act of caring for others and providing food, shelter, and friendship. Do these thoughts bring to mind a person, maybe even a family, supercharged with this charism of hospitality? I have a family in mind who bleeds it, holy hospitality that is.
Here we are marching quickly through the first quarter of 2014, and I’ve yet to host the official-yet-unofficial oath of office for my 2014 spiritual board. So here and now I present to you my 2014 Spiritual Board of Directors: seven saints reaching out to me, inspiring me, and uniquely supporting my vocation as wife and mother.
Another round of Quick Takes courtesy Das Schmidt Haus (although thanks to a not-so-pleasant encounter at the OBGYN clinic, Lisa got a little “ranty” with #1 this week!). So it’s a “6 Quick Takes and 1 Not-So-Quick Take” edition.
A friend introduced us to the practice of developing a spiritual board of directors, a personal intercessory board to pray with and for us. As Lisa celebrates her 36th year of life, here is her board of spiritual directors who can uniquely support her vocation as wife and mother.
