FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "It is a fact that the after-effects of rape will never be erased from a woman's memory, just as she will never be able to forget that someone treated her as an object, someone attacked her with a brutality unworthy even of animals.  But not even abortion will erase this memory: those who suggest it, those who impose it, those who request it, answer violence with violence, not only towards the woman but especially toward the child, whose life should be respected like any other life concieved."  from Maria Luisa Di Pietro, Institute of Bioethics, Catholic Unicersity of the Sacred Heart, Rome

QUOTE II:  "We drink from our own wells."  Gustavo Gutierrez


Thought this was funny.  A spider was spotted hanging down in front of Eric Armusik's painting of St. Sebastian.  He looks a bit more worried about the spider than about the arrows being shot at him. 

Take in a pro-life movie this Lent (before it dissappears!)  October Baby is now playing.  More on the movie here.

M. W. sends this in:  "The March issue of the St. Austin Review (StAR) is now out. This issue is dedicated to exploring "Faith and Fiction" and contains two excellent reviews by St. Sebastian Chestertonian Matt Akers." Read more here.

E. F. wrote in to say, "Hi Fr. V.---do you know Daniel Matsui? I love his work. I thought you might be interested in seeing some of his stuff or maybe signing up for his newsletter."  Actually I do like his work and it was one of the reasons I ordered the Missal in which his works appears.  Unfortunately the rest of the Missal was a bit of a dissappointment.  Anyway, here is the online version of his newsletter.

This is Sebastian relaxing after his vetenarian's check up yesterday.  He lost another few pounds.  Looking good dog!

This past week the Akron Regional Chamber Orchest (ARCO) who is in residence at St. Sebastian and the St. Sebastian Parish Choir joined forces to perform Faure's Requiem this past week.  Great job people!

I am very proud at how many St. Sebastianites went to the rally about the HHS mandate in downtown Cleveland.  Here is the WKYC channel 3 coverage of the event with a video.  This was just one of about 150 such events that went on across the country at roughly the same time.  More coeverage here.

The Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter asks, "Did you know, there are three First Friday Clubs in the Diocese of Cleveland that host a monthly speakers series luncheon? They include: First Friday Club of Cleveland; First Friday Club of Greater Akron; and the First Friday Forum of Lorain County." Find out more here.
