FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: "The worse thing about sin is that the body remembers." - Thomas Aquinas

QUOTE II - "From the pulpits we hear the drone of safe talk on safe issues delivered in vanilla rhetoric whose honey dipped phrases disregard the reality of today's moral crisis. Where are our homilists? Where are the Kolbe's and Romeros? The Church honors martyrs, but more it needs living, brave leadership." - Drew DeCousey


The Cleveland Museum of Art is largely closed for remodeling but the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage which had the fabulous exhibit last year, "The Cradle of Christianity" (a show put together for Pope John Paul II) is now presenting, "Materpieces of European Painting" on loan from the CMA.

Adoro De Devote sent along this link to "Catholic Daily". She says, "Catholic Daily is a new website apostolate of sorts. The webmaster/editor is looking to build a content base for education and evangelization, and just yesterday, he added discussion forums. Currently he's still garnering authors, some pretty big names, also. The content isn't all original, for example, Mark Shea's articles posted on Catholic Exchange are also being posted on Catholic Daily, etc. He's got some big ideas and this guy is working hard to make it happen!"

Adoro is published there!


My cousin sent this along. If you are looking for something to do, give it a try:

1. go to 2. click on "maps" 3. click on "get directions" at the top 4. type " New York " in the first box (the "from" box)5. type " London " in the second box (the "to" box) 6. click on "get directions" top right. 7. scroll down to step #23

Thanks, Father!

And here's what Chris at CD has to say about his goal:

"The goal of CD is to provide constant, faithful witness to Jesus Christ, the Roman Catholic Church, Her true teachings and the various ways in which we live out our faith each day as members of the Body of Christ.

We are 100% completely and totally loyal to the Magisterium and to our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI.

Our website is still in its infancy stage. We're continually in the process of adding more and more information to our site every day. We are blessed to present some of today's best and most talented Catholic writers, covering a variety of issues and topics. Our ultimate goal is to provide the most comprehensive online repository of factual information on the Catholic faith as well as a great wealth of original content, as well. "

There's more in the "about" link.

Actually, Father, it's step #24.

(Unless you think the right turn at Long Wharf is worthy of note.)

Adoro said...

I just followed the directions to London.


Guess I'd better get in shape for that lifeguard drills and skills learned will come in handy...


Thanks, I needed that.

Wow! Catholic Daily looks really cool! Thanks for sharing that, Father.

And if you have any information on retreats, I would love to know what you suggest. I had looked at the St. Joseph Christian Life Center website in the past and I recently heard about a silent retreat at Catholic Familyland near Steubenville, I think. But that one was in March and I think they only do it once a year.

I got a kick out of the directions to London, by the way! I passed that along and made a few friends laugh today.

I just found your blog. I saw a link for it somewhere, but unfortunately can't remember where.

I just wanted to stop buy and say that I love your blog and appreciate the effort that you put into it. I hope that you can keep it up.

Thank you for saying yes to God.

Hi Father-
I found your blog this evening; as the father of 'new altarboy' shared with me that you had used his photo. Just wanted to let you know I found your writings very interesting, especially the synopsis of your call to vocation. I have always noticed that your celebration of Mass has always been most solemn, with a true devotion to the Eucharist, and after reading some of your posts, I can say that you are truly a devout Priest of God!
I hope your words reach a great many.

I would be careful about the St. Joseph Christian Life Center. They use a labyrinth and centering prayer and a lot of other New Age stuff.

I wasn't aware of the labyrinth and new age stuff at St. Joseph Christian Life Center!

Thanks for the info.

Odysseus said...

Oooooh! A labyrinth! Now I want to go to church!

Hey Sylvana - I'll try to come up with a few things for you.

Thanks all.
