View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Black Friday

Black Friday

Black Friday
Up before dawn
Not because
I planned to pilgrimage
to the shrine of Mammon
at the mall
but because
the cat
needs to be fed
the dog
needs to be walked
morning prayers
need to be said.

Oh Lord Jesus Christ
Son of God
Have mercy on me
A sinner.

We each have
Our own sins.

We each have
Our own God.

And now, sadly, we hear about a man being trampled to death in a Wal-Mart.

Are the sale items that important?

I believe a pregnant woman was also crushed in that same crowd and miscarried her baby. It's really sad what people will do for this stuff (and the mob mentality is just scary).
