Many thanks to our friends at The Art of Manliness for their recent article on the art of letter writing.
The Church Ladies are most enthusiastically in agreement with such wisdom and suggest the following as your assignment for the day:
- Read the post for inspiration, links to supplies, and other practical advice.
- Write a letter to at least one person this week. (And at least one next week, and every week until it becomes a habit.)
Of course, love letters should be at the top of this list, but of equal value are letters encouraging others in their faith, and letters of appreciation to all those who make your life a little nicer in some way. As so often happens, there is a great Catholic tradition of patrons to encourage us in this endeavor and it would be particularly appropriate to ask the intercession of the beloved Epistle writer, Saint Paul, in this year where we are celebrating his life.
Go! Get off the computer and pick up your pen!
