About Being Thoughtful

Facing west— I stand still
Though my shadow
Went ahead crossing the street

Waking— yawning— hungry
Those morning hours
Dragging my feet

Remember that fight
At the McDonald’s on Vermont
So effed up— at least he let it out

Wouldn’t want to hold that in
All day till 5:00 pm
I’d rather see jello thrown

But the eggs are alright
I don’t want to go
To the border today

I don’t want to see
The carnage on the freeway
Lives lost to a dream

Hopefully everyone pursues
Any kind of Dream— give it a go
Might as well try

And all that resentment
Just held in— let it out
Let the day begin

Those morning thoughts
Shouldn’t be lost
It’s all daily prayer


To quote a Saint

”Our body has this defect that,
the more it is provided care and
comforts, the more needs and
desires it finds.”
~ Saint Teresa of Avila

Benedictine Exclamation For Mount Carmel

”The ultimate goal of Teresa’s reform
and the creation of new monasteries in
a world lacking spiritual values was to
protect apostolic work with prayer,”
~ Pope Benedict XVI July 16, 2012

My Question (though not entirely rhetorical)

If Saint Teresa of Avila is a model for current efforts to launch the New Evangelization.

Why aren’t women being ordained priests?
