PhotoTime..... theme #26 is Magical/Mystical
La Biblia de Maria Salas... my mother-in-law's Holy Bible
What can be more mystical than religion... any religion? I'll never forget, as a child, attending an old-fashioned traditional Catholic Mass with my girlfriend. It was beautiful... the Latin... the music... the rich tapestry of the Priest's garb... even the smells intrigued me! I went home and told my mother i wanted to be a Catholic. Imagine my delight and surprise when she told me i was already baptized!!!
I was enrolled in the sixth grade class at a Catholic school the following year... learned the Latin language... sang the music... and learned that the priests and the good Sisters of Mercy are just people like you and me. I am no longer a 'practicing' Catholic but strongly believe that a good solid religious foundation is an important element in education.
Ah what the heck! While i'm preaching... i think it's important to recognize our humanity and respect our Origin... no matter what name we attach to Him or Her..... and as Tiny Tim said, 'God bless us one and all!'
