Let them eat cake?
And Paul, bless his silly male heart, wants to insist that his mother bake me a cake and drag it all the way up Highway 45. I say that such is wholly unnecessary, but he is somehow convinced that I can't be received into the Church unless we have a cake. He tells me that I just don't "understand how these things work."
I'd love to hear from our readers how I missed this "party" requirement in my reading. :)
UPDATE: Our parish was granted a dispensation to start at 7:00 instead of 8:00, and there will be a reception (almost assuredly with cake) afterward. Crisis has been averted, and we didn't even have to truck in baked goods from Memphis.
