I fly out of Milwaukee Saturday morning and my finally week of novitiate will be in San Diego. I am truly looking forward to spending a day on South Mission Beach and body surfing. I also want to go to Tacos El Gordo and eat real Mexican food. And see my friends! I really miss SD.
I also am looking SO forward to seeing my parents. It’ll be 51 weeks that I’ve been away, which is just too long!
Mentally now I’m not really thinking Profession but packing and going to San Diego. I’m letting everyone else be excited for me! The Profession will have about 100 people there with most of the California friars and select friends and my parents (three of us are professing for California). If it was an ordination it’d be at a bigger venue and I’d invite everyone I knew, but for this there’ll be maybe 15-20 people that I know there including my two godsons!
Novitiate is a graced time with its ups and downs. I know that when I leave here I’ll miss it and realize what a gift it was, but now most of us just want to get going! Lots of mixed feelings happening. And with those feelings I want to be doing rather than thinking about them, which is exactly what the novitiate has trained me not to do! Hahaha!
Thanks for checking in :) pray for me!

Jewish And Arab People Posing Together Online, ‘Refusing To Be Enemies’
In the midst of news about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict, some people are posting photos online for an international social media campaign on Facebook and Twitter, with the hashtag, #JewsAndArabsRefuseToBeEnemies.
I’ve always believed that politicians create wars. Most human beings on this planet are good and want to live in peace. Thank you to whoever put this beautiful photoset together!
^^^^ this… Politicians make wars.

As mendicants, we do not have a choir habit. Over the centuries monasticism did influence the habit, with some friars attaching choir sleeves to their habits when entering the chapel in an attempt to be more like monks. This is no longer done (that I know of) because it is not true to mendicant spirituality: a combination of the contemplative and the active.
The white habit is an official habit of the order. But in practice it is only used by novices and friars in tropical regions. The norm for a professed friar is to wear black. After August 2nd I’ll give the white habit back to the novitiate and use the black habit you see here.
