7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: Go to confession! Two great new sources of information are GoodConfession.com and The Light is ON. Get inspired, fire-up your motivation and do it. Archbishop Cordileone talks about receiving the Blessed Sacrament worthily. A loving mom and her special needs child. Lutheran Satire has some good insights, made in good humor. Reacting to sound and speech for the first time.

Last year, this same group (Lutheran Satire) brought us the following theology piece for St. Patrick’s day. Here simple, common, but quite poor analogies are given to explain the Holy Trinity:

Nothing new, but simply an amazing reaction. Watch as emotions flood over this woman who hears for the first time in her 39 years:

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need.
