I agree with you; these people (including plenty of men) seem to know the Catholic Church is the True Church, but rather than abandon it they’d rather pretend the truth can be conformed to their way of thinking.
Good morning to you as well (I never know when people are just getting on - as in “morning” - or working an odd shift where it is their “afternoon”). Still have to get a few things, but I have some days off to do it. Northern NJ will be a traffic nightmare today, since we have lower sales tax than neighboring NYC and our malls in the county nearest to NYC are closed on Sundays (”Blue Laws”).
It’s morning for me. I think we’re done shopping for gifts, but we need to get more food. The Christmas tree is supposed to go up tomorrow, in spite of the toddler, the cats, and the imminent arrival of the guest-dog. We’ll see how it goes!
