I came across this display one bright and sunny Saturday a few weeks back. It could have been decorated this way for Maria's belated confirmation, Anthony's First Holy Communion, or for Donna and Kyle to celebrate the birth of their little girl whom we pray will be raised in the Catholic Church and not as a Jew-Meschugena like Kyle's family wants.
Look at the care taken here. Everything carefully selected and placed just so. White faux plastic roses with hot glue gun dew drops. Feather-soft lace, hugging the iron hand rail, finished at each end with a bow made of clouds. A beautiful gesture commemorating an important moment in this fleeting life the Lord hath offered us, for which we are forever grateful, and show this by living every day in his image.
What's that? It's gonna rain for the next three days? Fuuuuuck that.
Did you have a better idea?
Didn't think so.
