Email of the Day

A reader writes:

I, along with my 91 year-old, daily-Mass-attending Irish-Catholic mother, watched the CNN Larry King show last night. Says mom at the conclusion: "The only one making any sense to me is that guy who you say you read online everyday." There is hope for us all.

Thanks for all the emails. If I've got 91 year-old Irish-Catholic grandmas on my side, what do I have to fear? I had my own Irish Catholic grandma, of course: the seventh of thirteen kids from the town of Tralee, in County Kerry, Ireland. I think she held the world record for a decade of the Rosary; and she lived with us as I grew up. I've never witnessed faith like hers, and she never read a book of theology in her life. If she's interceding for me with Our Lady in heaven, and she may well be, I'm gonna be ok (or, at least, forgiven).
