whatcha reading x

...I was standing in the house by the boy-prophets. Nobody seemed to notice us, and we got in nobody's way. Though they had been old men hundreds of years ago, they were not at all surprised at being present there as young boys; and I, though a nun over forty years old, was not at all surprised either at being now a poor peasant child of nine years. When one is with these holy people, one is surprised at nothing, except at the blindness and sinfulness of mankind.

- The Life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Anne Catherine Emmerich

Yeah, there's always that.
