Explaining papal calm on security, plus a note on the convert debate.

In the wake of the latest spike in violence across Europe, the Vatican says it's not taking extra security precautions, in part because safeguards were already "very strong." Popes often feel a greater degree of calm about their safety than other public figures, because, let's face it, from their point of view, they've got the ultimate safety net.

Europe is again reeling from violence, as incidents in Barcelona and Cambrils in Spain on Thursday marked the sixth and seventh times, respectively, in just over a year that a vehicle has been used by Islamic jihadists to inflict casualties on a European city.

Meanwhile, a stabbing spree in Finland on Friday left two people dead. Police say they now see it as a terrorist attack, and have arrested an 18-year-old Moroccan asylum-seeker and four others so far. The incident prompted increased vigilance at airports and train stations, and a heightened police presence in places where people congregate.

Though one prays it won’t happen, by the time this column appears, there may be other attacks to report.

Vatican City, of course, is also a European venue where lots of people congregate, and to be blunt, it’s probably a small miracle that something similarly appalling hasn’t happened there. For a jihadist, after all, it’s more or less the brass ring - a towering symbol of both Christianity and Western civilization, and the home of the most recognizable Christian leader on the planet.

I reached out to Vatican spokesperson Paloma García Ovejero on Friday, who told me the Vatican is not taking any extra security precautions in light of the week’s events, in part because “we don’t have any evidence” of a specific threat. “We haven’t increased measures of security, because here, the level of vigilance was already very strong,” García Ovejero said. “St. Peter’s is always protected, and the Via della Conciliazione [the broad avenue leading up the square] remains closed to traffic.”
“In other words, we’re keeping the same alert level,” she said.

This group of people, words can not begin to express the amount of love and admiration I have for each and every one of them. I wouldn't be the person I am today without the fellowship, the iron sharpening and the shared vision we all have in Christ Jesus. They're not my friends, that would be insulting to them, no, these people are my family. #crux #camp2k17 #christian #buildmylife

Prep can be an awesome reminder of how much our mindset can affect our adherence to a program and/or performance. When you make a habit of pushing your own limits every week, these little setbacks turn into challenges. Less excuses and talk; more work. #motivated #sundayfunday #crux #cruxclimbingcenter #cruxcc #atx #atxfitness #fitfam #bouldering #bodybuilding #vegan #veganmuscle #vegansofig #atxvegan #austinvegan

Hikes, burgers, and brews today in Bend with my love @geosioban #oregon #pnw #crux #mcmenamins

So I get self conscious posting fitness related picture on Instagram... More so lately. I recently cut off my hair so it's super short, this happened for a few reasons. But when I look around for fitness motivators and physiques to strive for... no one really looks like me. I don't have the long flowing ponytail and I'm much taller. That's when my self confidence takes a hit. Can I post these pictures when I'm not the usual image of feminine? Posting this picture is kind of my way of testing myself, I love how short my hair is and how it looks on me... in "real" life. So why should I let social media change that? I'm trying not to let it... #twa #differentfromtherest

Happy Monday, my friends!
Yesterday I was asleep more than I was awake. I can't remember the last time I had a day like that. Obviously, my body and soul was in need of some serious recovery. I have been in a bit of a funk emotionally. Most of the time I am ok with living alone and can keep on the positive side of life. Lately, loneliness had taken over my thoughts. Yesterday, I finally had a moment of clarity (in the few minutes I was awake). This is where I am meant to be, at this very moment. I need to be grateful and focus on me....Without distractions. I need to do my best at work, at school, in the gym, and grow spiritually. So...I am going to kick ass in my workouts, nutrition, work, school and make sure I only listen to what feeds my soul.
This week, this life, is mine. I am going to own every moment and grow. ✌🏻💜💪🏻
Sending you all the best for a kick ass Monday!
Thanks for staying tuned in...back to my regularly scheduled positivity. 😘
XOXO
