Book Meme, Revisited
Tuesday, December 02, 2008
Nadja tagged me for a book meme.

Pass this on to 5 blogging friends. Open the closest book to you, not your favorite or most intellectual book, but the book closest to you at the moment, to page 56. Write the 5th sentence, as well as two to five sentences following that.

I've done it twice this year, but I'm afraid this one is not as interesting as last February or as informative as last September.

No, I've been planning the next trimester of our school so the nearest books are DiscoveryWorks (3rd grade science text book), First Language Lessons, and The Mass Explained to Children by Maria Montessori.

From The Mass Explained to Children, Ch. IV "The Mass of the Catechumens" re: The Sign of the Cross.

It was the gesture through whcich a believer in Christ was recognized by his brothers. It was the sign used by a member of a persecuted society, when the very fact of belonging to it might be punished with cruel death by the powers then ruling.

I pass it on to my 5 most recent commenters:

Heather at Domestic Bliss Report
Mrs. Flam
Birdie at Wings and Prayers
Jennifer at Double Nickel Farm
Liz at Scarlet House

And anyone else is welcome to join in - leave a note in the comments!
