The other night our parish young adult group ventured out to one of the several wonders of the ville. Where you ask? We went to a magical place that will give anyone’s inner sweet tooth complete satisfaction and a fix like none other. Two words:
You want soft serve? You got it. Milkshake? You got it. A Chocolate milkshake with a vanilla sundae on top?! You got it! Well actually I did and it was glorious let me tell you.
I could go on and on about their sweets collections, but I’ll spare you the mouth water details. You can thank me later. Did I mention they have chili dogs or tacos-in-a-bag? I tried to capture the whole taco-in-a-bag experience for you but those cards where not in my favor. So I’ll give you this. Can’t blame me for trying. *Taco-in-a-bag is Fritos, taco meat, cheese, salsa, and sour cream.
Enough about food Clare, lets move on.
I hear ya, I hear ya. Check it out though trust me.
After the ice cream social, we visited a fairly large grotto devoted to Our Lady of Lourdes and prayed one of my favorite prayers, the rosary. God’s presence was truly felt and the comfort from Mary’s veil engulfing us in her love and care was like a feeling I can’t fairly put into words. There may have been a ton of distractions, (UofL has some campus apartments near by and someone’s phone started blaring towards the end-that may or may not have been mine, you’ll never know) but its awesome to think of the example we were setting for everyone walking past. It’s okay to be Catholic, its okay to pray, it’s actually pretty cool..
“For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matthew 18:20
