"You will be a better mom because you are a theologian, and a better theologian because you are a mom."

Is it true? In this blog, I explore the interplay and intersection of motherhood and theologianhood.

For Eva's Hagiography

They often say of a saint, "She displayed extraordinary piety at a young age." Just in case Eva becomes a saint, here's her early display of piety, which may or may not be extraordinary as such but is a little unusual for a 13-month old!
I should add that she initiated what you see here. She wanted to get up on the couch near the crucifix and so was pointing and begging with her eyes. I think she learned the kissing the crucifix stuff from her big sis. During our house blessing, instead of participating, Maia kept getting up on the couch to kiss Jesus. Maybe Maia was trying to impress Fr. Pablo. Anyway, this morning I got the crucifix down for Eva and in the video above she's dancing while attempting to kiss Jesus (you might notice that her kisses don't coincide well with when she has Jesus by her mouth - she's just learning how to kiss!).
