We fled.

We woke up early, checked the weather reports, turned on the news and hastily packed the car, cramming in essentials: wedding photos, clothes, toddler toys, infant car seat in case the baby in my belly decided to come early.

COLORADO SPRINGS. Although weddings during the coronavirus pandemic look much different than in the past, couples are continuing to attend marriage preparation classes and enter into the sacrament of matrimony.

Hot, mild, pickled, Pueblo, Hatch, bell, Anaheim, jalapeno, home grown. Peppers are loved by almost everyone. And if you don’t like to eat them, they can be beautifully displayed when strung and hung as ristras. Fall is the time to celebrate the pepper. We are very blessed to live in a state that farms some of the best peppers on the planet. Pueblo Chili #1! Boooo-Yah!

Every four years, Catholics face an intense dilemma in regard to the vote. There are ardently Catholic Democrats who wonder how their co-religionists could possibly choose a Republican candidate, and there are ardently Catholic Republicans who express precisely the opposite opinion.

Somehow, I have been expecting some event that would get things back to normal. Last spring, I thought it would be the arrival of warm weather. Later, I thought it would be the fall when children returned to school. Recently, that new marker was Christmas, with a vaccine approved for use. But this past Sunday, as I looked around at yet another socially distanced Mass, I finally accepted that no such event was coming.
