At Home In Chucktown


Herman decided to go down to the Catholic bookstore to hang out with the nuns for a little while on Christmas Eve. Somehow the conversation got around to the question of whether nuns ever get homesick this time of year. Sr. Charlie gave the little, orange mouse a lesson on the true meaning of home.


The Bible teaches that every house is built by someone, but a real home — well, that’s built by God (Heb 3:4). We get homesick sometimes because our hearts want to follow Jesus. When we are where the Lord wants us to be and with the people he wants to be with, we find our peace.

Our peace is in Jesus.


Sr. Charlie loves her natural family, and she faithfully stays connected with them. But God has given her a new home and a new family to love too. And when she’s with her sisters, Sr. Charlie is always at home wherever that might be.

Herman realized the truth as he spent time with the nuns down at the bookstore. His place was at the Chucktown cathedral. As the Cathedral mouse, Herman was part of Bishop Bob’s family, and that made him a happy, little mouse.


That’s our story and we’re sticking to it. It’s cool to be Catholic.

In Christ.
