  • Reasons why this fictional wedding I am writing is actually quite realistic...

    1) Last-minute wedding planning fiascos because NOTHING IS READY.

    2) Faaaaaaaaamily drama.

    3) The groom is convinced that everything is okay while the bridal party is SCRAMBLING.

    4) ... wait. That person wasn't invited. The bride hates him. Why is he there? Should we... uh... call security?

    5) Did she... try to... upstage the bride????

    6) OH NO. THE BRIDE FORGOT SOMETHING IMPORTANT.

  • ... if you're wondering whether I am wearing my Holy Spirit socks in order to celebrate Pentecost properly, the answer is yes.

    Quillfeather In children's church we were trying to explain Pentecost and even with my deep background in that type of thing it didn't go over well (also I didn't have anything red to wear 😭)
    (One of the kids was just singing a like tiktok song that's like "holy Spirit activate, activate, activate")

    Snoink Omg, now I am curious as to what my children actually know about Pentecost. XD There's no children church over here (we just drag them to mass with us, haha) so this has got to be good...

  • A quick rant about language, Harrison Butker, and Catholicism...

    Spoiler! :
    I... think I figured out what the deal is with why everybody is so upset by the whole women's vocation thing is? Because when I listened to it at first, I was like, "This is a big nothing burger." Harrison was clearly talking to a bunch of Catholic women and saying that their vocation was probably going to be a wife and mother. And I was like, "Of course, duh." (He later told the men that their vocation was probably going to be husband and father, but that really wasn't reported for some reason?)

    Anyway... a lot of people got really upset?

    Then it hit me.

    A vocation for Catholics means something entirely different than it does in real world speak.

    If you're not a Catholic and you hear the word "vocation" you think of jobs. So like... when somebody says, "Your vocation will probably be a wife and a mother" that means that says you cannot have a job. And that is a disturbing idea. Women can't do work? It's ridiculous!

    And I would agree with you! Women should be able to have jobs and work outside the home. Most devout, traditional Catholics I know would also agree with this too. Women can have jobs! This is okay!

    But like... for Catholics, the word "vocation" is different. A vocation is not merely a job. A vocation is something else. The word "vocation" comes from the Latin word "vox" which means "voice." And so, a vocation is not merely a job but a calling from the very voice of God to undergo a specific, lifelong sacrificial life which requires a specific vow to God.

    So like. For Catholic men, the main vocations are either going to the religious life or becoming husbands and possibly fathers, since both of those include covenants. For Catholic women, the main vocations are either going to be religious life or becoming wives and possibly mothers for the same reason. And yeah, sometimes God is going to give you something ELSE to do for a vocation, because God is God and God can do what he wants. But like... jobs are not really a part of this, if that makes sense. Like, Catholicism is not a capitalistic dystopia where you are entirely defined by your job position. You are more than just your job! You are a child of God. :)

    So like. Yes, Harrison Butker was talking about vocations and swooning over his wife, who happens to be a SAHM. But like... that is not the only path??? Being a housewife isn't a bad thing, but like... having a job is also not a bad thing??? But like. Neither being a housewife or having a job are vocations in Catholic-speak. And I feel like this was lost in translation...

    Anyway. There's a Catholic perspective for you, lol. You might still disagree with what he said -- and that's okay. Not everybody wants to be a Catholic. But hey! Learning new perspectives is fun!


    LadyMysterio Whoa, I did not know this word existed. But I am glad, it's cool. Thanks for reaching me a new word today XD

    Snoink You're welcome!

    On another, related note, one thing that is actually considered a vocation for Catholics is... art. Because it is an inspired creation. Is it an official vocation that requires vows? No, but because it is inspired and a part of creation that is created because of this inspiration, it's considered to be a vocation nonetheless.

    ...so I guess I am pursuing my vocations as wife, mother, and artist. XD
