The “Papa and Anna Show”

Here is a video (link is not visible on YouTube but only through this post). Recently, I had a few minutes to chat with my younger granddaughter Anna Rose, chubby-cheeked and wide-eyed and lovable at two-and-a-half months old.

It’s a bit of fluff. Obviously, I talk TO her (and the viewers) while she fusses a little and smiles a little and scrunches up her face in various ways and sucks her passy. Nana was with Maria in another room, and Maria was not happy about something, so you will hear her “complaining” from time to time in the background, toddler-style.

Well, Lent begins tomorrow in the Roman Rite, and of course I am not ready. That, I suppose, is one of the reasons why it’s good that we have this annual season of penance, charity, and preparation to celebrate the Paschal Mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus. We enter this time together, as the communio of the Church.

Here is the actual link to the video. Happy Mardi Gras!
