...all the time!

All the time...God is good!

This cheer is among the things that we're hearing this week when we ask Natalie how her days are.

Also heard:

Bananas of the world unite!

Peel bananas, peel, peel bananas

Eat bananas, eat, eat bananas

Go bananas, go go bananas

Go, bananas!!

Bananas of the world unite!!

This is Totus Tuus Week. She is having a fantastic week. My heart is full.

Totus Tuus is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship.

Totus Tuus summer camp demonstrates that one can be a faithful Catholic and still have fun. We are lucky enough to have 4 college students, including seminarians, from our diocese who will share their energy, enthusiasm, and love for Jesus Christ with our daughter (and other youth from our parish) this week!

From Wikipedia:

Totus Tuus was Pope John Paul II's apostolic motto. It is a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours" and expressed his personal Consecration to Marybased on the spiritual approach of Saint Louis de Montfort and the Mariology in his works.

According to his Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Mariae he borrowed the motto from the Marian consecrating prayer. The complete text of the prayer in Latin is:

"Totus tuus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt. Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria." ("I belong entirely to you, and all that I have is yours. I take you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart")
