Lunch With A Wayward Catholic

Today I had the pleasure of meeting up with Jenn from Confessions of a Wayward Catholic for lunch. It was a very nice time. And purely by coincidence (?) we could hear from the table next to us talk of Ignatius, Xavier, Santa Clara University, a Jesuit-related conversation! We weren't far from BC, so that might have had something to do with it. The fact that we already knew a good bit about each other from blogging made things easy and familiar. It probably didn't hurt that she definitely had the air--and the accent--of someone from around these parts, like myself (though I've kinda lost the accent). Besides being a kindred spirit in terms of things Catholic, she also clearly shares my enthusiasm for popular culture--and sci-fi! So it was not difficult at all to come up with things to talk about. She clued me in on some interesting religious aspects to the show "Rescue Me," which I've never seen, but now might have to explore a bit. She also clued me in a bit on the new "Doctor Who" which will be arriving in the States soon, I hope! I also hope we'll have the opportunity to visit again soon. If you haven't discovered her blog, I encourage you to have a look-- you can read about her recent "arrest" on the way back from a visit to a monastery, and her inspiring journey back to the Church! In her latest post, she also asks prayers for her brother. So, Oremos!
