Bio:

Recently retired and caught by the freedom to explore freedom.  In love with my husband, children and grandchildren. Received into the Catholic church in the Cathedral of St. Peter, Wilmington, July 2003. Trained as an American church historian, but fitted more for the work of institutional study and renewal than to the academy. And I’ve been blessed opportunities to work in both. Thankful for the opportunity to retool, in part through the Personalist Project.

Re: Our decisions belong to us; we are responsible for them

And difficult.  Thanks, Katie, for these two recent blogs.  I've realized that castigating my repeated, patterned efforts to avoid decisions--often about such actions as reading demanding material, or writing for analysis, summary, or argumentation--takes forms worth examining for what they tell me about personality. Avoidance exposes my personal loves, such as pleasing my eye by adjusting arrangements of household Penates, even for the church year, or contacting loved ones, or taking stock of food in the frig, or ...  Fear and guilt not the best motivators for handling freedom. 

Stay informed
