Here are Pope Benedict’s first three tweets in... Read more »

If You Wish to be Perfect

If you wish to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven.  Then come, follow me. – Matthew 19:21 Well, I don’t want to be THAT perfect, and our Lord was not talking about following Him on Twitter, either.  *Sigh* But seriously, I know...

The 2012 Presidential Debates, Sort of

Some of my favorite tweets and comments of the night: These were posted about the “drinking game” you see above: That’s too many rules for me. We just have 3 and it’s bad!

Would You be Willing to Break One of the Ten Commandments?

            I’d break a commandment to have a maid.  Seriously.  I hate housework. I tweeted that statement not too long ago and it started an interesting conversation.  I was asked which commandment I would be willing to break. I am the LORD your God.

Thumbnail image for '#WhatSistersMeantoMe'
“Here’s a cool video that uses tweets from #WhatSistersMeantoMe in tribute to Catholic sisters. And while I wouldn’t say that Sr. Theresa Kane, RSM, “stood up” to the pope (more accurate to say that she boldly in his presence) and I’m not crazy about the F-bomb in the song…overall this is beautiful! The more I... Read more »

Bumper to Bumper on the Communication Highway

Navigating social media when you’re not exactly a twenty-something (*cough*) can be a challenge.  Because of my blog, I’ve learned to use WordPress,  Facebook, twitter, TweetDeck and Google +!  Whew!  Stand back.  I think my brain is going to explode! My biggest problem (outside of writing every day) is managing my news feeds.  The communication highway can... Read more »

Can I Twitter and Learn New Mass Parts at the Same Time?

One of my colleagues here at ChicagoNow wrote about being an old person learning how to use “Twitter.”  My kids are probably close to her age. I’ve had a Twitter account since I first joined ChicagoNow, but never used it.  After going back and forth about it, I finally took the plunge.  Of course I have... Read more »
