|More Quick Takes at Conversion Diary!|
1. Very busy week and the weekend is almost as busy. We began our ministry to moms on Tuesday. Eight mothers joined us as we made a leaf banner or candles for Thanksgiving. Some more ideas came out of the gathering, specifically a music group for moms and toddlers. I’ll do some research and see what I can find. We have a leader already for that group, but she is due with her first baby around Christmas, so it’s hard for her to make plans, though in her joyous state, she thinks she is in complete control of the baby coming situation.
I had my baby fix though, holding and feeding a three
month old. I see this group as a total win for all; we get to relax and make something pretty (Pinterest anyone?), we build community and I get to hold babies. What could be bad?

2. We also went on a pilgrimage to the Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady Queen of the Universe in Orlando on Wednesday. The day was a great success!

3. This prayer intention from Morning Prayer struck me this morning: “You have called us to a prophetic vocation in Christ, help us proclaim your mighty deeds.” We are in the New Evangelization, how are we doing proclaiming the Good News? And who are we proclaiming it to? I realized that I spend the overwhelming majority of my time with Catholics and hope I am doing enough for them to grow in their faith.
