I love what you said about personalism rather than materialism and how teaching beauty is paramount! I wholeheartedly agree! Kate Wicker @ Momopoly KateWicker April 15, 2011 at 1:35 pm Love. This. Katie B. MendyLady April 15, 2011 at 2:58 pm One of my favorite quotes from The Crow is “Mother is the name for God on the lips and hearts of children everywhere.” Amy April 15, 2011 at 4:07 pm @Charise: Thank you! Without beauty, how can we teach who God is, much less the specifics of faith? And can I just say I am so excited you commented; I just came across your blog the other day and love it. I actually linked to one of your poems in a post recently. @Kate: Thank you! 🙂 Browsing your site now… @Katie: I was given a book called “Motherhood – a legacy of love” (L. Skomal) when pregnant which came with a bunch of greeting card with whimsical motherhood-related quotes, and that was one of them! Makes one think. Moorea whipitoutsongs April 16, 2011 at 12:00 am So eloquent and special. Proving religion can be full of love instead of restrictive and hateful. I’m not Catholic but you make Catholicism look good, girl! melissa aka equidae April 16, 2011 at 5:42 am wonderfully written and explained and i do believe you are right Stephanie GGirlGGreen April 16, 2011 at 8:03 am I am not going to lie, I am on the fence about religion, But I really did love your post. It was very sincere, well written & got me thinking which is probably your point! And the fact you are from Montreal is amazing! Thanks for sharing! 🙂 Christina April 16, 2011 at 10:43 am I am a traditional RC (SSPX) and also believe in living a “natural” and “traditional” lifestyle. Unfortunately most people who live that way are left-wing libertarians. You should read the book, “Crunchy Cons…” by Rod Dreher. And by the way, lovely wedding dress and veil! Amy April 17, 2011 at 2:16 pm @Moorea: Thank you! I’m sure any Catholic would be delighted to hear that 🙂 @Melissa: Thanks! @Stephanie: Gotta love la Ville Marie! Hoping your website will go up soon…? @Christina: How fun to find other trads here! My husband and I don’t go to the SSPX, but our parish is a long-standing EF parish (in the first picture actually it’s the Angelus Press wedding booklets we’re holding!). To me it’s so obvious that Catholics should be crunchy… I’ll look into the book, thanks! Juliana Stoy August 15, 2013 at 11:23 pm I just got married (also in the Extraordinary Form!) and my dress looked just like that. I’m an aspiring homebirth midwife, and I really wish some clever person would write a book looking at crunchy parenting through the lens of Theology of the Body. Maybe I’ll get around to it someday. Amy August 17, 2013 at 8:01 am Hah awesome Juliana! I am also an aspiring midwife; I am currently preparing to start nursing next year so I can become a CNM in the States down the line. I have also thought that we really need more crunchy books! Parenting With Grace by the Popcaks is by far the best crunchy, AP Catholic book out there right now imo, do you know it? Congratulations on your marriage!! I will pray for you 🙂 Juliana Stoy August 17, 2013 at 11:03 pm I’ll be sure to read that when I start having babies.
