Oopsies. Hopefully, you can tell by that first word, that Harold is M.I.A. hehe.
So, I accidently used the “A” word today. You know, the “A” word that we’re not supposed to use during Lent. I was just overly excited about one of my completed tasks and yelled out the word in great joy and jubilation. Yikes. I was, however, very gently reeled in by one of my co-workers. Mea culpa.
However, today is a day to rejoice while not putting aside our Lenten offerings. It is the feast of the Chair of St. Peter.
Today the Church celebrates the feast of the Magesterium, or the teaching authority of the Church. The chair of St. Peter does not mean the literal chair that St. Peter actually sat on. hehe. Although, there is a chair on which the pope (Vicar of Christ and “Peter of our times,” as Archbishop Wuerl said earlier this week) sits on at St. Peter’s Basilica on Rome.
Papa B says, “Celebrating the Chair of Peter means attributing a strong spiritual significance to it and recognizing it as a privileged sign of the love of God, the eternal Good Shephered, who wanted to gather his whole Church and lead her on the path of salvation.”
Happy Feast Day, but it doesn’t mean you can say the “A” word. Peace and blessings!
