Marriage is what brings us twogetherrr…today

My mom is getting married this weekend. That is weird. I will be concelebrating the wedding which will be even more weird but at least I am not having to receive the vows would would take up my weird quota for the rest of the year.

It should be fun to see my brothers and sister. My sister has been married since I have seen her last so that will be weird as well.

A weekend of weirdness and hopefully some work as well.

    Dear Fr Todd,

    At first I was surprised at your words on this post but then it came to me that I really do not know about your family. Where’s dad? why didn’t you marry your sis? Is this personal? I am sorry if it offends anyone, I was only curious! I pray for you every day Fr Todd!

    I know a case where a woman left the Catholic Church, and married an Presbyeterian gentleman. They had two children, a girl and a boy, who were raised as Presbyterians. The girl grew up, married a Catholic, and eventually became one herself. The boy grew up, became Catholic in colege, and was ordained to the priesthood. Some years ago, the woman decided to come back to the Church. Her son heard her confession, blessed his parents’ marriage, and gave his mother the Eucharist- the first time she had received in close to 40 years. The next day he baptized his first niece- her first grandchild.

    I think one of the totally cool things about God is weirdness! I recently found this quote in the Religious Ed book my husband and I are teaching to 10th graders about the mystery of faith and the sacrements. It is by Henry Emerson Fosdick, who, unfortunately, I have no idea who he is, but he says, “I would rather live in a world where my life is surrounded by mystery than live in a world so small that my mind could comprehend it.” Weirdness! I’m glad you are getting a good dose of it, Father.
