As I promised way back on February 27, 2014, in my blog post, My Catholic Corner Office, at some point when we were in the new parish office building, I would post pictures of my office. At the time of the above blog post, I was sharing an office with one of my co-workers because we didn’t have the space to have our own offices. Now in the new building, which also holds the St. Michael the Archangel Adoration Chapel, we each have our own office. Our supportive staff uses cubicles and many have really made those their own space as well.
As I said in the above blog post, “I love working at Saint Mary Magdalene because I can be the on-fire, papist loving, unapologetic, evangelical Catholic that I am. See my blog post from last year – Characteristics of a Papist.” Working at the parish and having an office of my own makes going to work so much fun each day, well my co-workers and superiors help this out a lot too.
Although my office is essentially where I want it to be, the one thing I will continue to add are statues of the saints and icons. Below you will see where the statues and icons are in my office. They are a great reminder to me what it is to strive for holiness. A reminder I need everyday!
The last picture is the view from my desk to remind that the life of a Catholic Christian, the life of a evangelist, the life of a Catholic lay minister, is always the Cross. It’s meant to be hard and if we die with Him and we certainly rise with Him. There have been many times over the past 6 months that this has been proven true.
All Praise and Thanksgiving to Jesus Christ…Now and Forever. Amen.
