Red Tape week plus prayer ....

Tuesday (as mentioned briefly below) I spent a good part of the day waiting in government offices trying to correct some paperwork errors. Today I am on the phone (going on 3 hours now) with the IRS (I guess this is live-blogging). You see I received my letter informing me of my pending government stimulus check-but it was the wrong amount. They only counted the dependent children I could list on the front page of my 1040. Since the IRS only has 4 lines, additional children are listed on an attached page. In the effort to get stimulus payments out swiftly, the IRS ignored the addendum.

I wonder if others with more than 4 children (under 17) have had similar problems?


Last night we ended our CCD year with a crowning of Mary, the rosary and Benediction-followed by a pizza party. It was a great time. The occasions of prayer and party are important to a parish community and to our families.


Remember (a day late) that this is the 2nd day of the Novena to the Sacred Heart. We haven't done the novena in the past-but will this year. On the feast day we will do our family forgiveness (origin and details described here) and then have our "re-enthronement ceremony (details here).

I haven't been able to find the form of the novena we doing (from an old prayer book) online so I am making copies today.

Oremus pro invicem!
