Please read this, it is very important!

Jury Duty - It is spreading fast so be prepared should you get this call.

Most of us take the summons for jury duty seriously, but enough people skip out on their civic duty, that a new and ominous kind of scam has surfaced. Fall for it and your identity could be stolen, reports CBS.

In this con, someone calls pretending to be a court official who threateningly says a warrant has been issued for your arrest because you didn't
show up for jury duty. The caller claims to be a jury coordinator. If you protest that you never received a summons for jury duty, the scammer asks
you for your Social Security number and date of birth so he or she can verify the information and cancel the arrest warrant. Sometimes they even ask
for credit card numbers.

Give out any of this information and .... Bingo! Your identity has just been stolen.

The scam has been reported so far in 11 states. This scam is particularly insidious because they use intimidation over the phone to try to bully
people into giving information by pretending they're with the court system. The FBI and the federal court system have issued nationwide alerts on
their web sites, warning consumers about the fraud. Here is the link if you want to check it out. <;>

Royal gossip, scam warnings and avoiding speeding tkts doesn't enlighten you?

Sometimes it's refreshing not to take things too seriously- something I've done a lot lately.

- Have you seen him drive? I'm glad he knows those cameras are there- just as a measure for his well being. Fr.- you drive a Taurus (I think) NOT a Ferrari!

What's with people and mean msg's? These past few weeks, I've been dealing with the anger of someone that I've allowed to affect me. I've had my motives questions on several occasions. The first time it was regarding why I was involving myself in something that should be a church-based activity, the second questioned my intentions with our pastors and the most recent questioned what I'm trying to prove by taking "liberties" regarding passing certain msgs along. I'm not 100% sure who this person is, but I've an idea, and I'm quite certain they'll recognize my grievance (even as I voice it anonomously). Know, I know what my motives are and I'm not interested in justifying them to you. My friends also feeling bothered, so how 'bout laying off!
Remember- we're waaay past high school!

Tonight at Mass, I was thankful for the community, for our visting priest who gave an engaging homily, the beautiful voice of our deacon (maybe he can tutor Fr, Mike & Fr. Greg in singing- lol!), our own, always inspiring priest, but especially, I was thankful that I had eye drops in my purse!!!

I've heard the incense is "choke free" but don't know about "tear free"? Try waterproof mascara until Easter season is over.

There was an article written about a priest, Rev. David Barnes in Boston who received that area's "Priest of the Year" title. Fr. Barnes is the youngest monsignor in the archdiocese (only 35 yrs) and took over a parish where enrollment at the school, donations and general participation were down. Some of his parishioners made the following comments:

"He stepped into a changelleing situation and has been instrumental in tuning it around. But he is our spiritual leader too, and that's what he does best."

"I think his strength is that people are drawn to him and become drawn to the church. He is always giving us the opportunity to grow in our faith. When people grow in their faith, they become more involved and invested in their church."

"It feels good to be part of a parish that has so much life. He's a young guy, but he's wise beyond his years."

If we in Washington had the same honor to offer the priests in our archdiocese, I think both of our priests would deserve that title. Besides, how many piests do you know who sky dive or play basketball with the Wizards? To quote one of my kids, "Our priests are way cooler than everyone else's!"

Connected by the Internet and an unshakable belief in their cause, a tight-knit group of extreme pro-life activists who -- all members of the "Army of God" -- have turned to violence to abolish abortion. This fascinating documentary examines several of the soldiers involved in the ongoing "battle," including Paul Hill, the man who committed the infamous 1993 murders of two abortion clinic workers in Pensacola, Fla.

In rereading some of materials that I haven't looked at in a while, I came across a this on spirituality. It is important to make your life spiritually positive. Spirituality stresses that you can't come home to God w/o coming home to yourself. Secrets cause fear, denial and shame (and often isolation). It isn't possible to be open to God and self if you're shutting out inspirations from others. Shame comes from a conclusion that you're not who you are supposed to be-you're "damaged goods". Fear is the companion of shame b/c there is a danger that someone will find out about your secrets. It's key to believe in a God who is loving and accepting and know that we are subject to God's scrutiny-

"Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting."

This is the exact kind of sentiment I find myself expressing when so many of the Christian "far" right big mouths open those mouths to spew-
But don't they realize....Jesus taught mercy not vengeance.
