Two for Others Tuesday: A Thursday Edition

Serve others in Christ's name

The Love Project:  There is so much ugly conflict out there in the ether, so much delight in what is wrong.  If you’re looking for a way to rejoice some more in the truth, take a look at The Love Project.  What started as one blogger’s (that blogger being Heidi Hess Saxton) New Year’s resolution has become my personal way of taking a moment each day to think with more charity.  Heidi is taking a Catholic look at all the charitable kinds of love, both humans and divine.  The posts are efficient in their brevity and often end with a challenge for you to carry with you through the rest of the day.

Have altar, will travel:  The Travel Altar is an adorable idea.  I met the Travel Altar ladies on my airport/hotel shuttle ride at CMN.  It’s a little trifold card, kind of like a paper triptych, into which you can slide three of your favorite holy cards.  It’s a great way to organize your holy cards and keep them rotating, especially if you’re a “collect ’em all” sort but don’t have a practical means of displaying them all at once.  Now with the Travel Altar, you don’t have to.
