Two for Others Tuesday: Special Three-Part Conclave Edition

Serve others in Christ's name

  1. We came across this adorable DIY papal conclave playset for little ones.  Regina at A Living Garden has made something simple that allows the whole conclave process to come alive.  Visit and play!  
  2. Come si elegge il papa interactive slideshow is great for older children who can read and click.
  3. And now, on a completely unrelated note, I encourage you to visit Introvert Fairy Tales.  These are brief but brilliant takes on familiar stories, only they are rewritten for the introvert’s version of “happily ever after.”  It may be entirely secular, but I see this as a wonderful illustration of the fact that not everyone’s “happily ever after” involves being attached to one human creature romantically for the rest of this earthly life.  Solitude is not unhealthy.  Contemplation and the pursuit of mental joys is not sinful. If it weren’t, we wouldn’t have monasteries like this one.  I’ve met those ladies through the grille.  They all look happy and healthy enough to me.
