Mon Oct 24
Today was a pretty decent day all things considered. I went to Mass this morning. Prayed 2 decades of the rosary. Ideal is one full 5 decade rosary every day, but I am not going to force it. I’ll consider one decade enough on any given day for the time being. I went to a Celebrate Recovery meeting but didn’t stay for the full thing. Something just was not feeling right, I was getting anxious so I left. It’s a Christian program and I don’t think there is anything wrong with it per se, but I just wish there was a CIR group near me.
Reflecting on my need and desire for Catholic community. There are two modes of engaging with this lack. Being mode and having mode. Having mode feels driven by a lack, whereas thinking about who I can BE such that I find myself naturally in abundant relationships with fellow Catholics feels more alive. Going to let this incubate but I have some ideas about how I could start moving in that direction.
– pull together a list of all the parishes in my local area
– once a week pull together the bulletins
– put their events on my calandar
– go to as many events as I can
– have faith than from this connections and friendships will happen
Tomorrow: I gotta work early in the morning so I need to get to bed after posting this. What would make tomorrow great? Above all, don’t act out. If I have any urges I will default towards connecting with God and the Blessed Mother through the rosary. Beyond this, I haven’t worked out in a while and I’ve been procrastinating on school work. Which is more important? If I could only have one? I will prioritize school.
So tomorrow will be a good day if I don’t act out and if I do some school work.
Goodnight. God Bless.
