From my missal…Today’s Epistle ( Genesis 7:6-22) and Gospel ( Matthew 21:33-46) draw a parallel between Joseph, sold into slavery by his brothers and Jesus, the well-beloved Son of the Father, put to death…….(these) inform us that our Christian vocation is a privilege but one which requires our fidelity.
Fidelity. Faithfulness. Describes a recent discussion with a friend, another mother. Wow. I talk about this to a friend and then read about fidelity in my missal. Serendipitous.
I bought an Easter book today – the story of Easter, of joy, of redemption. A picture book , filled with luminous illustrations. For reading..the story is touching…for strewing…the illustrations are lovely.
I made another meatless dinner, another Lenten recipe. Named after a priest friend, who used to regularly make this for Friday lunch for me and the boys. Years ago. After a homeschool morning of Mass and odd jobs and errands with six then seven kids…. Brings back memories….
Fr. Michael’s Tuna
1 425g tin tuna
600ml cream or reduced fat cream
1 punnet mushrooms or 1 tin champignons
1 large onion
A tablespoon tomato paste and/or 1/2 cup white wine
While pasta is cooking, saute chopped onion and sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil. Add paprika and cook for a minute or so. Add cream, stirring all the time, followed by the addition of tomato paste, wine, oregano, flaked tuna, seasoning. Bring to a gentle boil. Allow to simmer while pasta is cooking. Then stir through cooked pasta and serve with a green salad. Very nice. Thank you, Fr M!
