Readings
  • Am 6:1a, 4-7  Woe to the complacent!  They'll be the first to go into exile.
Wordle: Readings 9-29-13
  • Ps 146:7-10  "Praise the Lord, my soul!"  Blessed he who keeps faith, secures justice for the oppressed, feeds the hungry.  Lord reigns forever, sets captives free, gives sight, raises up, loves; thwarts wicked.

Roamin' report
Now that I'm back to playing at my parish, my own "roamin' Catholic reports" (e.g., 8/189/19/8, 9/15) may be rare, but let's keep the reports alive.  My idea for the site is to encourage "dressing" our life to God's word (more than superficially), and my idea for the "report" is to acknowledge and promote the good in worship and learn from what could be improved.  Please be on the lookout for that and make contributions as comments (any day) and/or as e-mail to me for incorporation into a future post.  I really welcome comments and hope the site can evolve to be more collaborative!  Note too I headed this "Roamin' report" because it doesn't have to be exclusively Catholic.  Thanks again.
More
The Sunday celebration trumps archangels Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael this year, but feel free to enjoy St. Gregory's famous homily for that feast.
Dress your life!
