I have . This morning my commute to work included a young woman who, upon seeing me, loudly exclaimed "Oh my god!", told her friends to stare, and repeatedly announced that she was "scared of" dwarf people. You know what I'm scared of, lady? Being anything like you.

I was at a conference this week where a priest talked about arriving at a Church that had been without incumbent for 8 years. He described how it had been a time of "transfiguration" for them and he really conveyed love & admiration for them. Not unusual, just nice to see!

The one on getting more conversations around vocation. Apparently the laity are already quite busy & clergy are doing it already. And also it was too clerical (even though the whole piece was about lay vocations 😂)

"On Friday, his voice breaking with emotion, he shared memories of hearing Kennedy speak in 1961 – the President famously exhorting Americans to ‘ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country’. The Putnams clearly answered that call."
