After Mass, the children we so inspired to know more about St. Teresa Benedicta that we made plans to read her biography at home this week. The girls were curious about a point Father made in his homily. He said that trusting in God doesn't mean we can't attempt to avoid difficult situations. St. Teresa Benedicta saw the rise of Hitler and his Nazi party and asked to be sent to Holland to protect herself and her fellow sisters in the Carmel. Well, on the way to breakfast, the girls asked when and why Hitler started to gain popularity and how he was able to become so popular so quickly. The Professor, lover of all things WWII related, volunteered and gave us all a little lecture in the car about the state of Germany after World War I, the rise of the Nazi regime, and hyperinflation. Yep! History, economics and religion for the day checked off on the way to IHOP!
I love homeschooling!
