Twitter Talk: Ignatius of Loyola's Basic Question, St. Clare, Photo of the Day, Day of Rest, Two Big Events

Here's what is happening on my Twitter Account - twitter.com/goodsaints...

When making decisions, Ignatius of Loyola says the basic question is: Will this help me get to Heaven or keep me from getting to Heaven? (Note: A good question to ask yourself throughout the day!)

Clare of Assisi: still perfect after 700 years. (Note: Retweet of tweet by Linda DeMerle. A nice write-up of St. Clare. If you don't know much about her, take the time to read about her, she is amazing!)

Claire's Photo of the Day: Play-Doh (Note: Finally getting back to posting some of Claire's pictures. We've been so busy with life that I haven't had much of a chance to update the blogs.)

Take a Day of Rest! (Note: Pope Benedict said, "traditional family values and Sunday rest were key to escaping the ills of modern society..." So take that time on the Lord's Day to spend with family!)

Lots of other exciting things on Twitter as well, but wanted to touch base on a couple of big events I've been blessed to be a part of. First, is the priestly ordination of Peter Wigton. Father Peter is from Holy Rosary in Cedar and our parish was very excited for his first Mass on Sunday morning. My family and I were able to attend the ordination and I came away impressed with Father Peter, even more so then I was. We'll keep Father Peter in our prayers and I hope you will too. Second, our parish has opened the St. Padre Pio Perpetual Adoration Chapel in the location of the previous chapel in the old convent. The chapel officially opened on Corpus Christi after the procession. Many people have put in countless hours to make this happen. So if you're in Leelanau County, head on over and spend an our with Our Lord!

It's been a busy start to the summer, but I hope to find some time to post more regularly here. God Bless You and thanks for reading!
