After having to deal with a cantankerous digestive system at 4 am, I decided that I was still going to 11:30 Mass. My alarm went off, my digestive system was still grumpy and put off going to Mass to 5:30. All of this was prejudiced on the state of my digestive system (d.s.) which has … Continue reading Not The Day I was Hoping For
In this case, I mean traditionalists. They just make me so angry especially when they accuse those that attend the OF as being judgmental and closeminded when I find that it is the traditionalists that are so judgemental and arrogant and judge others by their very untenable and unrealistic standards.
