St. Basil the Great

My 2007 Saint for the Year of devotion is St. Basil the Great, whose feast day happens to be tomorrow. A very coincidental thing (coincidence or God-incidence as mom would say) is that tomorrow I'm going in to have my wisdom teeth removed. I'm absolutely petrified by it. As irrational as it sounds I'm convinced that once they put me under I'm never going to wake up again. I hate having anything to do with my teeth to begin with, but being knocked out is just pushing me over the edge. I've forbidden my family to speak about it since we found out I was having it done a month ago because every time someone talks about it or I think about it I start crying. I'm just not a very strong person, and this has me scared like crazy.

St. Basil pray for me!

I know that God is guarding you. St. Basil is certainly praying for you.

About Me

My photo
Catholic and politically conservative, I graduated with a BA in History (concentration in American) and Political Science. I'm between two parishes; one in Wisconsin that is fairly traditional, and one in Illinois that is fairly liberal. I teach CCD. I work in the food service industry, which basically means I'm working in fast food until I find a better job. I'd like to work for the church somehow. Right now I'm working on getting my teaching certification, although I'm unsure thats the correct path for me. This blog is as random as I am. I hope you enjoy.
