Accidentally Speaking

October 7th, 2014 | Posted by Sr. Mary Valerie Schneider in Uncategorized

kbbrixDuring the ceremony when St. Brigid (500 A.D.) was to become an abbess, the bishop accidentally used the prayers for an ordination of a bishop. Back in June a presider at Mass intended to give a Father’s Day blessing, but accidentally turned to a page with a blessing for catechists. Oops!  Psychologists tell us that sometimes what we say accidentally is what we really mean unconsciously. When praying the Office aloud in community, instead of saying, “When I lie down, I fall peacefully asleep,” a Sister said, “When I fall down, I lie peacefully asleep.” Now that’s an accident I wouldn’t mind!
