It wasn't until last night when I was preparing for today's liturgy that I realized that my "mistake" yesterday (taking up today's Gospel instead of yesterday's) was really an invitation to do what Mary did that day in Bethany: really sit at the Lord's feet and let him do the talking.
Speaking of talking.... I (finally) put together a web page offering the presentations I am doing for the Year of St. Paul. If you are in the greater Chicago area (or the Midwest, generally!), please give a copy of this list to your pastor or adult faith formation director. Maybe I can come your way!
