At the beginning of Lent, my wife and I attended the Church of the Ascension all school Mass on Ash Wednesday. As we were waiting for the service to begin, our children were entering the Church as one family, devoted to Christ.

At that moment, I was reflecting on the Ascension of Jesus stained glass art and enjoying the peaceful assembly of our parish without mobile phones, media, pop stars or commercialism. Life is moving so quickly and it’s easy to fall into the typical human race to acquire stuff and check off our endless to do list.

Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books we used to read as kids.

At the bottom of the page, when faced with some big decision, we decide if we want to do this thing or that. We turn to the page number assigned to our choice and our adventure continues.

Or it ends, and we flip back to the last page read and pick the other answer because we’re not ready to be done reading.

Admit it. You did it. I did, too.

Put Catholic education within reach of every student.
