FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: "Why is it that we think we only need give to the poor the basics when the poor also need beauty?" Dorothy Day

QUOTE II - "First class is not something you buy it is a state of mind." Fr. Benedict Groeschel CFR


As you might have picked up from yesterday we experienced a power outage due to the wind storm yesterday. You can see in the pictures the ominous sky and at least part of the aftermath; the loss of one of our beautiful trees that was kind enough not to crush the fence as you can see. Photo credit Ed.

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Jay announceth Catholic Carnival 189!

I'm sure you heard about all of the parishes closing in the Diocese of Cleveland. Have you been wondering about what happens to all the art? The Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter sent out this link to an article telling what this Diocese is trying to do.

L.M. sent this link for the Rosary Congress being held here in all places Holy Rosary Church in October. Fr. Benedict Groeschel CFR will be speaking. See their website for more details.

Nikki sent this article in from the Los Angeles Times. Wow. I wonder Who came up with these wonderful insights. They are just so original. Have you ever heard them before? Thanks Nikki.

This final picture shows what happens to young ones that laugh at me. I'll get you my little pretty, and your mangy little dog too!

Dear Father, Thank you for the quotation on beauty. Those who criticize the Church for its beautiful buildings and art work ("Why was this painting not sold and the money given to poor?"), fail to realize that "the Poor" can enter any church and, for free, be edified by the art. "The Poor" can't afford the admission to a big city museum.

Father, it's supposed to be a brass serpent...not a stone girl.

I think you read the wrong book this last weekend.
