So this is not a typical blog entry…and parts are totally plagiarized from I don’t even remember who. (Best Guess is Scott Hahn and Mother Angelica) All I know is that I’m not even close to this brilliant. I don’t even know why this is coming out now, but I just felt compelled to write this entry and post it…so I hope it helps someone out there. (Truth be told, I’m reading about Padre Pio…maybe that has something to do with it!)
Ok, so how many of you reading this are either pursuing a college degree or already have one? Maybe some of you have, or are working towards, a B.S., B.A., M.A., M.S., or Ph.D. Maybe others of you are an M.D. or a D.O. and are even called “Dr.” Still others may have a J.D., like me, and can put “Esq.” after your name (for the record, I despise this suffix). Dare I say some may even have M. Div. or S.T.D after their names. All of these degrees are wonderful pursuits and are very good. But, in the end, it seems like just a jumble of letters to me. I might as well have no letters or even supercalifragilisticexpialidocious after my name.
In the end, when the dust of battle settles, and time gives way to eternity, the only two letters that are going to matter won’t come after your name…thats for sure…and they certainly aren’t listed above. The only two that will matter might come before your name…and are “S” and “T”
So why don’t we put as much effort into obtaining those letters as we are/did to obtain all of the other ones above?!?!
