Scenes from the bookstore. So many people who come in are telling us their "pope stories"! What's yours? (And if you are in the Chicago area and have a photo of yourself and one of the soon-to-be canonized Popes, share it with us! We want to fill up the bulletin board! (Yes, we'll scan it so you don't risk losing your own copy!)

Afternoon meditation: Lenten Fridays with Francis--on a Monday
This was supposed to be posted last week! Oh, well. Now it's a Monday with Pope Francis... Part of a continuing reflection on Pope Francis' Lenten Message 2014. In the middle of his Lenten message, Pope Francis shifts gears. The first part was an extended m...

Sorry to report that as I attempted to replace my Mom's old iPhone battery, when the case finally began to open up various parts inside bent and even tore.Things that were supposed to be attached to the back came up attached on the screen side.  It was much more difficult than the video represents. The iPhone was completely destroyed in the process. And I lost the price I had paid for the battery, too. I know I took a risk trying this on my own; I didn't have time to go to the Apple Store, and could not find a service in Chicago that would do the replacement (now I know why!). What is hard for me is that my Mom died barely a year ago, and now I have destroyed her phone with my own hands. 
Viewers, learn from my mistake! Do not attempt this on your own!

Taking apart phones is difficult, especially with the amounts of adhesive that Apple and others use in their products. It takes a very practiced and steady hand and lots of patience for even those of us who have done it successfully.

If anyone in this group is going to it, I actually live less than 2 miles from St. Patrick's.  I really doubt I'll be able to attend with the newborn (my wife will normally give me 3 hours away from the house on my day off, 8 is really stretching it!) but I could step away during the lunch hour if anyone wants.

I know a couple of great places in the area to eat, if you don't mind decadent burgers and fried goodness!

Work
Occupation
I entered the Daughters of St. Paul in 1975 to share the community's charism of (in the words of Pope Paul VI, then gloriously reigning) "give the Church new ways to express herself" through communications technology. Now everybody's doing it! In these many years I have been involved in door-to-door visitations, catechetical workshops, writing (religious ed texts, children's prayerbooks, coloring books, and even articles of interest to grown-ups!), singing (with the Daughters of St. Paul choir (http://www.facebook.com/DSPchoir). Here in Chicago, besides singing in the choir at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Parish, I research the spirituality of my community's founder, Bl. James Alberione and give adult faith formation talks and retreats. I also really, really, really like to cook (and my sisters in community don't mind a bit!)
