7 Quick Takes Friday – Volume 71

7_quick_takes_sm1Please join me and other Catholic bloggers at Conversion Diary for 7 Quick Takes Friday.

1. March for Life
The Canadian March for Life was yesterday. For the first time in many years, I wasn’t able to attend because of illness. Thankfully, our family was represented at the March by my 23-year-old son. Read more about the March here.

2. God-grandchild!
I just found out that one of my god-daughters is expecting a baby! This will be my fourth god-grandchild! James and I have been blessed to be the godparents of six incredible people: three girls and three boys (the girls are all adults now.)

3. Sunrise
My son, Josh, captured this breathtaking sunrise.

Fr. Denis is a wonderful priest from the Madonna House community in Combermere, Ontario. He is also an author (see below) and blogs at Ten Thousand Places. Last week, I attended an inspiring day of prayer and reflection in which he spoke on “Mary and the Year of Faith.”
