Introit for the Third Sunday in Lent
Mine eyes are ever looking unto the Lord, for he shall pluck my feet out of the net: look thou upon me, and have mercy upon me, for I am desolate and in misery.
Unto thee, O Lord, do I lift up my soul: my God, in thee have I trusted; let me not be confounded.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Reblog: Eve Tushnet
I just read this excellent piece by Eve Tushnet, one of my favorite queer Catholics. (After years of trying, I still haven't been able to come up with a satisfying portmanteau of gay/queer/etc. with Christian/Catholic/etc., it's very frustrating.) Here on her Patheos blog, she states quite neatly and succinctly certain of the problems that plague Catholic-queer dialogue, and have done for decades. The whole (short) piece is good, but I think the gem of it is the sentence, "Surrender and penitence are realistic whereas success is not."
