On Reflection

   At first I was very thrown by yesterdays announcement of Pope Benedict's abdication and did not know what to think but just knew I felt crummy.  Obviously I did not doubt the rightness of anything he prayerfully decided to do but it still felt like my dad had announced that he was too old to continue being my dad and was stopping.  However after reading many fine posts I now believe it is more like as if he has admitted that he should no longer be driving and is handing over his keys ~ he still loves us and will always pray for us.  And I will always pray for him.


  1. I'm not Catholic, but it has been so interesting reading all of my blog friends' perspectives on this. Thanks for sharing!

    Btw, I tagged you for the Liebster Award today :o) Check out my blog for the deets: http://the-jordan-journal.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-liebster-award.html
