Opus Dei Kool-Aid

I haven't actually drunk the Kool-Aid, but I did go to their monthly Recollections service last weekend. What else could I do when my husband said, "Go to Recollections. I'll watch all the kids."?

Although not held at my parish church, most of the women there were familiar faces and one of my favorite priests gave the talks. I've never really had a chance to go to any sort of Adoration all by myself and it's amazing how much more one gets from silent prayer when one isn't watching several children and whispering over and over for them to stop wiggling, stop talking and sit still.

I don't think I'm interested in joining any extra groups, but I did like going to Recollections.


Whenever we say "Opus Dei" around our house, we invariably stick our fingers up like horns on our heads and add "Boogie! Boogie! Boo!"

I suppose that if there is an upside to being the solo RC in the house, it's that I can attend Mass in peace. My thoughts when dealing with my gang of orangutans at the family's weekly Episcopal service are rarely very spiritual.
