Prayer Request

A beloved Dominican of the Western Province and Blessed Sacrament was just diagnosed with aggressive cancer of the esophagus. Fr. Tom Kraft O.P. is a good friend of mine, and he served at Blessed Sacrament for a few years ending last summer at the Newman Center. He's still rather young, and was a wonderful part of BSP before he was transferred.

Jesson says, "We have hope in miracles and in the great mercy of God. Let us keep him in our prayers."

So please do and maybe tomorrow for the Friday of Lent offer up an extra little something for him. Or whatever.
But thank you!

crap, I forgot what I was going to say........

and I forgot the body of the post as well.
But that doesn't matter because it's Lent.
wow...I really cannot believe I was brainwashed that completely! haha!

I guess I'll just update then,

I love Blessed Sacrament.
I am cool with Lent.
I hate the CORE chemistry class with a violent passion.
I am enjoying my Valentines candy today.
I qualified for State, but am not going because it's on Holy Saturday.
I have a good chance of going to the Florida Forensics Institute Summer Congress and Speech Institute. (kinda retorical, but whatever) I'm very excited about the opportunity, and I am so incredibly excited about the possibility/potential of that experience.
My last tournament of the season is the National Qualification tournament on March first. Please pray that I do my best. There is a slim chance I will qualify, and if I do then I'm going to Las Vegas in June to compete with about 2,000 other Nat Qualifiers. But I probably won't. But you never know. Oh well.
I wish you all the most blessed Lent and I love you!

I had a really delicious "death by chocolate" cake/pudding/goodness cup. :)
sorry...I'm sick of writing about speech and debate, even though I didn't win.
Maybe I'll talk about someone else for a change:
Ali - top speaker novice LD, 2nd novice extemp

Elliot- 2nd open dramatic
Henry & Alex - 1st (state bid) open duo
Jakob & Daniel - 1st novice duo

I talked to Emma yesterday at Kamiak on the phone, that was fun :)
Rose is gone...coming home tomorrow, right?
Madeline and Grace invited me over Friday night to watch a movie and have a really fun time and I was really annoyed I had to decline the invitation. They better have had fun.
