The last time I wrote QT, the kids were letting out for Christmas. I've been slacking! But it's been pretty busy...the holidays are over, we had crazy cold and snowy weather and 2 snow days at the beginning of the week. But now the kids are back in school, thank goodness!

Did you see this article about how Cardinal Burke has said Nancy Pelosi should not be admitted to Communion until she ends advocacy views on abortion. Now, I saw a great comment on facebook with regard to this. Someone posted in the thread where I saw this article: "Is this binding? Or just an acknowledgment of what has been true for a long time, but she has blatantly ignored?" Hmm, good question. Burke's words are strong though noting that what he said is not his "opinion" but actual canon law (Canon 915).
I don't anticipate that Nancy Pelosi would do the right thing and simply refrain from presenting herself...so there is still the predicament of pastoral care, right? I mean...if she presents herself, it's not that likely a priest is going to refuse her. At least that's what I think.

Downton Abbey started last Friday. I really love that show! Sarah and I watched it and were happy with some developments, peeved at others. I enjoyed this breakdown by Heather at Mama Knows, Honeychild. To think I didn't let this wonderful show into my life until October of last year! Oh well, I am up to speed now. :)
