Happy Star Wars Day

This isn’t really my thing, but I am ecumenical.  I mean, if Pope Francis can send a Message for the end of Ramadan, then I can send my message for Star Wars Day.

So… to all of you a hearty…

“May The Fourth” be with you!

    The first movie was most notable for technical achievement. As SF, it was too campy to be taken seriously. Sequels and prequels never drew me in. Too many really good stories out there, and too little time.

    My children were pre-teens when the first Star Wars came out.

    We were also building our house at that time. We stuck a lot of Star Wars memorabilia between the studs before we put on the sheetrock. (There are also a lot of other things like family pictures and items I can’t remember hidden away like that.)

    I only saw the first series of movies. I suppose the others will be something to view when I am confined to a wheelchair or otherwise unable to get around.

    2 thoughts: first, this dyed-in-the-wool Trekker spent an hour last night on some Star Wars-themed crafts for his Liebchen, who are fond of the original Star Wars trilogy, so I feel the ‘ecumenical’ vibe! Second: upon wishing my 3 year old “May the Fourth be with you” this morning, he dutifully and with no trace of guile responded “And with your spirit.” Ah, youth!

    On the way to our parish, there is a little Protestant church by the name of “A New Hope.” My kids and I got into the habit of joking and saying, “May the force be with you” and responding “And with your spirit” every time we drove past it, the way we say “Praised be Jesus in the Most Holy Sacrament of the altar” and make a Sign of the Cross when we go past a Catholic church. When we started unconsciously making the sign of the cross when passing the little church, we decided we’d better stop!

    The proper response is……..

    “And with your Midi-chlorians”
