Ok, so "shortly" was rather longish.

But I have been slowly doing the preliminary work that precedes blogging - reading my e-mail.

Just came across a couple of great quotes that make a critical point that we discuss at length in every Making Disciples seminar and which I made in a spur-of-the-moment consultation last week with a couple seeking help for their parish's evangelization efforts.

They come from a post entitled Evangelization Precedes Catechesis (Yes!) from a blog simply titled "Evangelization"sponsored by the Archdiocese of Indianapolis.

Bishop Robert Vasa of Baker, Oregon said, “Without an evangelized heart, without falling in love with Christ -- which is really what it means to be evangelized -- the practice of the faith redounds to duty and obligation. There is only a slim possibility of persevering in the practice of a faith that is viewed primarily or exclusively this way. Perhaps those properly evangelized would not so readily leave the One they love.”

and in another post:

Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington, D.C. recently spoke at the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Convention hosted by our Archdiocese and the Office of Catholic Education in which over 8,000 Catholic educators attended from across the nation and other parts of the world. Archbishop Wuerl asked us to contextualize our entire catechetical effort in the wider initiative of evangelization. He encouraged us to “envision evangelization as an indispensable point of reference for catechesis whose aim must always be to arouse faith as well as to mature and inform faith.

Preach it, brothers!

If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time. A major Amtrak line in regular daily use by Americans is the Acela Express line, running between Boston and Washington, D. Financial and managerial accounting principles.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama.
