"My most recent analysis ... reveals a striking trend: A generation of conservative young priests is on the rise in the U.S. Church." - Fr. Andrew Greeley, in the article, "Young Fogeys", from The Atlantic Magazine. January, 2004.

This evening, setting up for Mass, I had to rearrange some of the Easter plants. They came from the greenhouse only last Saturday, but already the buds have blossomed and the stalks have grown taller. After a weekend of soaking in the warmth from the lighting in the sanctuary, they've become "top heavy". A few of them toppled over, knocking over the plants next to them.
Significant growth already, a few days after Easter Sunday.
Some people think that we only work on spiritual growth during Lent; that somehow we can stop trying during Easter.
