Celebrating Sunday

"Abbess Catherine did not answer that; instead, "What else did our Lord show us, Sister?" she asked, "in this Paschal time?" I expect, like you, after all the suffering, betrayal, desertion, intolerable disappointment, and being hurt, he would have liked to take refuge with his Father, but he stayed on earth, and what did he do? He didn't try to teach us things- that was left to the Holy Spirit. He did simple, ordinary things: loving things, Sister, like consoling Mary Magdalene, walking and talking with the disciples, breaking bread with them, cooking their breakfast."
[Rumer Godden, In this House of Brede]

Stuffed Peppers

6 bell peppers, top removed and discarded; seeded

6 1" cheese cubes

2 cups rice, cooked
1 8 oz can tomato sauce
8 oz ground beef, browned with onions (or any other precooked meat)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t each dried oregano and parsley
dash worchestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste

Place a cheese cube in each pepper. Mix filling together and distribute equally among peppers. Put peppers, cut side up, into slow cooker and cook on low 4-5 hours, or until peppers reach desired tenderness. Like anything, this recipe cooks quicker in an oval pot than a round.
