While I was in San Antonio, I found myself with two fellow Louisianians (Sr. Tracey and Sr. Margaret Charles), a sister currently stationed in New Orleans (Sr. Lupe) and at least one sister with vivid recollections of the years she spent in my fair city. All of which led to joking reminiscences of some peculiarly local turns of phrase. Where else would people come in for a copy of the Viaticum II documents? Or pray the Litany of the Hours? Or give a "chastity set" as a Baptism gift? (Hint: "Christening set.") Someone there once commented about a prosperous friend who ran a "ludicrous business." (It may have been "lucrative," too.) And one newcomer from the East Coast remarked joyfully, "I just love living in Louisiana! It's close enough to the U.S. that I can visit any time!"
