My sister-in-law has some good news to share!
Now I have two sisters-in-law having babies this year--which means my children will have two more cousins before the end of the year! Woohoo! :)
You may recall that I'm the second of nine children. Five of us are married, one is a nun, and the youngest three haven't begun to live a vocation in the world as of yet.
My parents will be welcoming their twenty-first grandchild this year. Twenty-one members of a new generation of practicing Catholics, one-third of whom (seven) are E.F. Mass-attendees who toss Latin around the way other teens toss slang (and those seven are all boys--so maybe a few priestly vocations, dear nephews?). I say this not to boast of my family, but to strike a little holy terror into the hearts of the womynpriest, contracepting, pro-abortion, anti-Rome Catholics who may peek at this blog on occasion--because it's families like mine who are the future of the Church, whether you like us or not!
Congratulations to Waltzing Matilda and my dear brother! We can't wait to meet your newest little one!
