Are you an American Catholic or are you a Catholic American? Is there a difference?

When I was a kid in Ohio, I experienced four distinct seasons each year: the harsh but beautiful snowy winters, the spring with its flowers and rain, the “lazy, hazy days of summer,” and the fall with the gorgeous foliage of deciduous trees. While each had its virtues, I definitely did not prefer the winters, largely because I was usually “under the weather” with colds, and a bit blue from the darkness of the skies.

Much focus in American society is given to winning. Elections, championships, competitions of all kinds. When someone wins the lottery, we uniformly celebrate. A win inspires us all to keep trying, against all odds.

 

We want to win wars, arguments, contests, prizes, sales, awards, praise, and respect. When we win, we feel vindicated. We feel affirmed in our abilities. We feel honored. We feel encouraged.

Democracy was shining its light on our house just as the supper table was starting to clear for chores and nighttime routines, but the once diffuse glow became a blistering spotlight directly on Yours Truly...and did I mention it can get hot under the gleam of Lady Liberty’s interrogation light?

 

“You have to vote,” Magan said. “Everyone else has.”

It took me a few days to get into summer. We got out of school, had graduation and then my children were all ready for summertime while I still had miles to go. When you have a million things going on, it seems impossible to “dive right in.”

Imagínate sentado en el teatro, contento que pronto escucharás la sinfónica local. Se oscurece el teatro, se abren las cortinas, el primer violinista entra, todos aplauden. El violinista parado ante los músicos señala al oboe para entonar la nota la, y de esta manera afinar todos los instrumentos. Imagínate ahora que el director entra, toma su batuta, se coloca frente a los músicos y por una hora completa la sinfónica toca una misma nota.  ¡Qué aburrido sería!

Imagine yourself sitting at the theater, excited that you will hear the local symphony. The lights dim, the curtains open, the first violinist enters, everyone claps. He stands in front of the musicians and you hear an "A" played by the oboe. All the instruments join in as they tune. The conductor now enters, takes his baton, stands in front of the musicians and for the next hour all you hear is the instruments playing that same note, an "A." How boring it would be!
