Lent ends before Evening Prayer, which is only said by those who do not participate in the Evening Mass of the Lord’s Supper tonight. While Lent is over, it doesn’t mean go and do whatever you gave up for Lent. Wait until after the Vigil :-).
Fr. McGivney, in the 1800’s, seeing the plight of widows and children after the death of the husband, founded the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal order for Catholic men so that they can join together, enhance their spirituality and their faith, and very importantly, assist in the financial security of their families. The Knights of Columbus’ insurance is one of the highest-rated products in the country and the Knights give billions of dollars to charity for everything from scholarships (one of them helped to finance my freshman year at UT) to the technical equipment and uplink to transmit papal events from the Vatican to the world.
As a card-carrying member, it gives me great pleasure to know that such a group of men exist.
Last night, I was driving home from work along Guadalupe Street at 10 pm. Usually people are starting to go out around that time, traffic would decent, but most importantly, it is a rather thoughtless drive. Stay in the middle lane, pay attention to the lights and nothing weird will come your way.
Not during SXSW. I almost hit a crowd of people after they walked into the intersection against the light with traffic heading toward them at 40 MPH. The next block, a car had stopped in the second lane from the left waiting for the two lanes to the right could clear so he could make a right hand turn, cutting off two lanes of traffic.
This continued most of my way home. I love SXSW, but don’t try to drive. Just walk or take a pedicab.
Look at it, you should notice something interesting.
If you need help, check out the story about a man stealing a wallet with the color security photo next to it. Does the man look like someone you’ve seen before, perhaps in another picture on this same front page?
What are the odds?
