I‘m going to be received into the Catholic Church this Sunday (baptism, confirmation, and first communion). Here’s what’s going to be going on here at the blog from now until Thanksgiving.
In the spirit of my blogging advice from yesterday, I’m going to be doing some arts blogging as a lens on some parts of my conversion/spiritual life on Thursday and Friday. (Fairly musical theatre heavy, natch).
On Saturday, I’ll be on my anti-football hobbyhorse in honor of the Harvard-Yale game.
Sunday, I’ll probably put up a picture from the baptism sometime in the evening, and that’s all you’ll get out of me.
I don’t want to be under too much pressure to distill the Sacraments I’ll receive on Sunday into blog fodder or stories, so I’m precommitting not to write about them for at least the first few days of next week. Instead, more arts blogging, since I took a bunch of notes when I saw the tape of British staging of Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch, and never got around to turning those notes into posts.
And, on Thanksgiving, I’ll be posting the obvious video. You can guess, can’t you?

I know a number of you have offered your prayers for me, so I’d like to invite you to post any prayer requests for you, your family, and friends in the comments of this post and to pick one other person’s intentions to pray for sometime before now and Sunday, if you’re the praying type.
I’ll start: two weeks ago, the first of my college friends had a baby, so, if you have time, pray for baby Theodora and her parents.
