FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IF MAY BE FOUND: “Our planet has been so blanketed by the glare of artificial light that if you live in a town or city, or close to one, you will not see more than a handful of stars visible to the naked eye. The wonders of the night sky, the greatest show on earth, which our ancestors took for granted, have become only memories. The universe has grown dark and silent; it may be the most measured, and quantified universe in history, but it is surely the least known.” from Moyra Doorly’s, “No Place for God”
QUOTE II: I lost the exact quote and the reference but it goes something like this, “Artists are the reports of Beauty.”
IN OTHER NEWS:
Not one of their best but Okay Thanksgiving Skit Guy's special:
E. M. sent this article in about the Catholic Church purchasing the Crystal Cathedral. Read more here.
The Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter reports: "For over 30 years the United States Bishops have issued a document to coincide with the year leading up to the Presidential Election. This all began following the Supreme Court rulings legalizing abortions in the United States.
"The documents focused on helping American Catholics form their consciences as they prepared to enter into the election process, realizing that they had responsibilities relative to living out their faith in a way that would enhance our American society." Read more here.
P. V. sent this in: "In case you haven't seen the news, the company which was engaging in clinical trials to treat spinal cord injuries using embryonic stem cells has halted the research. The trials were providing no benefit to the patients. The company will now turn its funds to cancer research.
"This news is important because the media had made a big deal of it when the trials first began. Will this news receive the same exposure? In contrast, adult stem cell treatments have achieved at least limited success for some patients with this type of injury, but the media does not widely publicize such progress." Read more here.
