FINDING TRUTH WHEVER IT MAY BE FOUND: "Unshared happiness is not happiness."  from Jon Krakaver's "Into the Wild."

QUOTE II:  "No priest will go straight into heaven.  We know too much.  'To whom much is given, much will be expected.'  We know what is expetected and we so often fail.  We are good men, but we will all spend some time in purgatory."  An almost exact quote from Fr. W.


The Father King Society was formed to make America's first Catholic University "honest, Catholic, and better."  Read more here.

Here is 9 and a half minutes of video I recommend sent in by E. S.

This is just interesting.  It is called the acronym finder.  Plug in some initials (maybe your initials) and find out what it can mean.  Mine were dissappointing.  They can either mean Jesuit Alumni Volunteer or Japanese Adult Video.  Find yours here.

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter, "The Church of the Diocese of Cleveland joyfully announces the Ordination to the Priesthood for service to the Diocese of Cleveland."  Read more here.

From the same source: "Here is an update on the status of the 12 parishes which are to be re-opened following the Decree from the Congregation for the Clergy in the Vatican and Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon's decision not to appeal those decrees."  Read more here.

And finally, "Did you know, a Catholic/Jewish exhibit begins at the 'Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage' on Friday, May 18? A Blessing to One Another: Pope John Paul II and the Jewish People is an interactive experience that allows visitors to follow in John Paul II's footsteps from his childhood to his role as head of the world's largest church."  See more here.

For priests militant and suffering...

Father Bruno’s PRAYER FOR PRIESTS 1925

O almighty and eternal God, look upon the face of Your Christ, and for love of Him who is the eternal High-priest, have pity on your priests. Remember, O most compassionate God, that they are but weak and frail human beings. Stir up in them the grace of their vocation which in them by the imposition of the Bishop’s hands. Keep them close to You, lest the enemy prevail against them, so that they may never do anything in the slightest degree unworthy of their sublime vocation.

O Jesus, I pray You for Your faithful and fervent priests; for Your unfaithful and tepid priests; for Your priests laboring at home or abroad in distant mission fields; for Your tempted priests; for Your lonely and desolate priests; for Your sick priests; for Your aged priests, for Your dying priests; for the souls of Your priests in purgatory.

But above all I commend to You the priests dearest to me: the priest who baptized me; the priests who absolved me from my sins; the priests at whose Masses I assisted and who have me Your Body and Blood in Holy Communion; the priests who taught and instructed me or helped me and encourage me; all the priests to whom I am indebted in any other way, particularly . . . O Jesus, keep them all close to Your heart, and bless them abundantly in time and in eternity. Amen
