(Picture: Pope Benedict XVI holding my Ecclesiology paper and giving a lecture based on my research on the discipline and importance on celibacy in the Priesthood. It'll be incorporated into an Encyclical sometime in the next year.)
Last night I got home late and so had to wait until the sprinklers were off before I could approach my mailbox. Once I did, I saw an envelope from Ave Maria University, and wondered if it was walking papers or grades. Somewhere between the box and my door, I realized that if I was in academic trouble, I'd be getting a call from the director, not a pathetic letter. Thus...it had to be grades.
I was afraid to open them. Although I knew my grade for New Testament (B+), I hadn't yet heard back on my Ecclesiology paper or my Canon Law final.
I also knew that I could not go to sleep unless I opened the envelope. Therin I found the good news!
Canon Law..... A- !
Ecclesiology.... A !
YAY! Although after the next year I still won't likely graduate with a cum laude, well, I can't complain about my current GPA! A's and B's get degrees!
Yes, I'm a geek.
Guess with that A- though, that a career in Canon Law is out of the question....
I wonder if someone will hire me as an Ecclesiologist?
