My second semester of third theology just started, and I will be spending 9 weeks on pilgrimage in the Holy Land, seeing all the holy sites. I will do my best to continue updating the site while here, but cannot guarantee it!
I begin my summer work assignment today, and as a result, I will not be able to post as often. I will still try to post several times a week, but I ask for your patience as I settle in to the new schedule for the next few weeks.
I would like to have a new reflection posted every day, but due to various circumstances this has proven very difficult for the last few weeks. I continue to strive toward daily postings, and I will be devoting a little more time per day to try to make sure that happens.
I have a retreat and a workshop over the next week and a half, so there will not be any new posts for a while. Sorry!
In the mean time, here are a couple other places to check out:
Word on Fire – Started by Bishop Robert Barron, Word on Fire has great content and is frequently updated. It focuses on the New Evangelization.
FORMED – This has many great videos and resources. It is kind of like a Catholic Netflix. Many parishes have a code for parishioners to get free access! (¡Y también tienen programas en español!)
In December, my Knights of Columbus council elected me Grand Knight. Since then, life has been a little crazier than usual.
I still plan to finish the “Love” article series, but haven’t had a chance to get the rest of it out. While browsing my local Catholic book store, I found Pope Benedict’s encyclical Deus Caritas Est (God is Love) and want to read that before continuing with that series.
My weight loss plan is not gone, and I have not gone up. I just haven’t dropped as much as I’d have liked. I’m at 229.8lbs as of today. By the end of May I plan to drop to 225lbs or lower–the final goal being between 190lbs and 200lbs. It seems that it is getting harder to drop weight as I get lighter and lighter. My workout has also changed a few times–I’m due for a workout update soon.
I have also retried my gardening attempts this year–last year was not a good year to try it out. Something about setting a record for most days over 100 in recorded history.
I have several other interesting articles planned; hopefully, I will be able to get those written (or at least started) this summer!
I finally updated my site a couple weeks ago, but a few days ago my server was rooted. I wasn’t really thrilled with Moveable Type, so I switched to WordPress.
Anyway, here’s round two of the new version of mattsiegman.com. Let’s see if I can make it last a little longer.
