A friend of mine has moved from one Catholic Cemetery to another and asked if I would bless her new office. I went over and did that.
Then I went to a graphic business to see about printing up some of the great traditional Catholic art I have collected on my computer; (13,000 pictures in iPhoto). They are so beautiful, as many of you know, and I would like to some how get them into houses to motivate people to be Holy.
After I saw a bakery next door. I went in to buy a cup of coffee. The owner is Catholic and told me that she used to be a catechism teacher at St. Catherine’s before. Then she asked me to bless her shop. I told her I was happy to do that.
As I walked out to my van to get the Holy Water, I thought: I should not bless it if she is open on Sundays. As I turned back to the Bakery, I saw the sign on the front door; CLOSED ON SUNDAYS. I went back in and told her that that was the only way to run a Catholic business. I thanked her very much.
We are so blessed to be traditional Catholics and to want to please God, not adore the god of money by working or doing business on the Lord’s Day.
