We live in a cynical world where the excited, exuberant soul is looked upon as foolish and childlike. As small children, we see the world in continuous moments of discovery that drive us from one achievement to the next.
As we grow older, those moments become fewer and we are content with accomplishments that have little to do with what life is really about. The love of ourselves and the people around us, passion for what we do, and the belief in our dreams are the true badges of success.
Fear is a mind killer, and passion is the path to achieving our dreams and contenting our souls. I am a cynical romantic.
I question everything, but when I see love, passion and truth, it refreshes my belief in the human race. These days it needs refreshing as often as possible.

I stopped in at Holy Family Cathedral. They are working on the lighting and putting in new pews. I’m upset that the ambo is being used as a coat rack and there are tools on the altar. The altar isn’t even being protected. I call the office and I get, “Well, mass is being celebrated in the hall and the Blessed Sacrament is being kept in the Sacristy.” Like that makes it okay to use the altar as a tool bench. The altar is sacred regardless of where the Eucharist is being reserved. #altar #holyfamilycathedral I was so upset I wanted to cry. (at Holy Family Cathedral)
