Whew, I’m just now unwinding from what has been a very eventful day!
The Theology of the Body conference was wonderful! Very thought-provoking–I definitely need to study up on ToB. I’d heard it lovingly called “JP2’s Sexual Revolution,” but I wasn’t aware of just how revolutionary it is. Lots and lots to digest! As always, it was enjoyable and very energizing to be in all-Catholic company. I got to meet people from all over DFW.
If you need somebody to do a talk about ToB, I recommend the good folks of TOBET. They’re knowledgable, and fun too!
I spent most of the day at the conference, and then hurried to my parish for the Vigil Mass. The neighborhood was incredibly jam-packed, and that’s when I remembered: the parish carnival is this weekend! Thankfully, I had plenty of time to find a parking space and walk 3 blocks to the church. Can’t complain.
After Mass, I decided on a complete whim to get a haircut (my haircuts nearly always result from complete whims). It’s now roughly chin-length, and in sort of a bob style. I think it suits me.
And now, though my normal bedtime is rather later, I am so tired I am going to turn in early! I have to be up somewhat early again in the morning to go staff the church library. There’s a parish social with coffee and donuts, which means two things: lots of very sugared-up children, and lots of parents too busy socializing to supervise said children. Add those two together and you get some pandemonium in the church library.
So. I’m gonna need my rest! ;)
