For the past few weeks the meditations I’ve been posting have been ones that I write weekly for my young adult listserv. That’s why, as you may have (maybe? no? oh, ok) noticed, they are a bit more pastoral and less personal in tone. Though the listserv is certainly less accessible than a public blog on the internet, for whatever reason, maybe because I know so many of the people on the list, it feels more intimate, and so I leave out some of the personal life details that I tend to include on posts here. I’m generally happy with that, since I’d like to eventually promote this blog more, but for now I enjoy keeping it semi-private.
I hope to increase the number of posts per week so that I can include some reflections that might not be as pertinent to the listserv, while trying to keep the tone of the blog homogeneous. We’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, if you have any spiritual ruminations you’d like to read about here, let me know. I’ve been working my way through The Dialogue of St. Catherine of Siena very slowly, and hope to write more about her insights as I get closer to being received into the Third Order of St. Dominic next month.
