This was taken May 3 2017… I figured pay phones are not going to be around much longer… so wanted to chronicle them as part of our ever changing history…
I stumbled on this while searching out new streaming radio. Flower Power Radio has a live link to this scene.
After a downtown Mass I spied this prayer card and almost took it. But then I though, no no, that’s just not right. Some sweet soul left it here and it belongs at the foot of the statue where it was placed. So I took this photo, instead. Turned out way nicer than just the card by itself.
The statue is this old, slightly beat up statue of Christ with an open heart. It always seems to look away from me, as if I’m doing something wrong. But it’s probably just the positioning. That, and the fact that it’s on a stand, much higher than floor level.
Today I felt like I did the right thing by not taking this card home with me.
Another great photo from Pixabay.
Last Saturday I happened to go down to St. Michael’s Cathedral, downtown Toronto. I never know when the Christmas decor will be taken down in the Catholic Church because I joined quite late in life. But I do like how they extend it.
Turns out today or maybe Tuesday is the last day. Although it seems there is some variation. I also went to Mass on Sunday eve so this wasn’t really my “last day of Christmas.” But that was at another church. And I liked the sound of it.
If the Church can arbitrarily say when Jesus was born, I can do the same for the last day of Christmas! For me, it’s Feb 13th, the day before Valentines Day. You just can’t have Christmas running into that. At least, I can’t.
This angel was looking over the manger scene.
