MWF=Mon,Wed,Friday. Tu/Th/Sa=Tues,Thurs Saturday. (you probably already knew that but I just wanted to make sure). I think it sometimes silly how we refer to ourselves as "Trad Pre-Vat II Catholic" or "Catholic With Liberal Leanings" etc. as if you have to be on one "side" or the other. I am just a Catholic sinner in the Latin Rite. I have found that in almost all discussions those on the far left or far right are closed mided, hateful, prideful, uncharatible and dare I say it, mean.
My signature is my belief that we need to keep an open mind and look for the middle ground with our brothers and sisters - which is why on some issue you will find me an open-minded traditionalist (e.g. I see the beauty in the history and tradition of the Rosary but rejoice that the Holy Father has given us new mysteries to meditate on) and on some an orthodox liberal (I see nothing amiss with the OF of the Mass but rejoice that my brothers and sisters who like the EF has greater access to it).
You are most welcome. I think it is hard for her because we know God is all good, yet how can he not love our pets as much as we do? The other thing I have discussed with the kids is now that they are confirmed they have the chance to be "adult" Catholics, and that means thinking more and asking questions, some of which we can only answer "I don't know, but you will find out in about 70 years when you see God". God bless you and your family.
P.S. - I like your sig about doing something for your marriage. My wife and I are involved with Marriage Encounter and it is so depressing at times to see the state of matrimony that you made my night!
Thx for your really kind reply in my pet/heaven thread. I think my dd "understands," she just doesn't want to accept it. But, with God, all things are possible, I can only imagine even moreso in heaven, some day. God bless!
