FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "They say the reason women are willing to give birth again is because they forget, but it's not.  Even though you remember the agony and the blood, you also remember that, where in one instant your arms were empty, in the next there was life - the newest, purest form of life.  And it came from you.  Eyes that are thirty seconds old can pierce through every awful memory.  At that moment you don't need to forget.  You would do it all again."  Toni Ouradnik in Sun Magazine

QUOTE II:  "The essence of chastity consists in quickness to affirm the value of the person in every situation,"  Karol Wojtila (John Paul II)


Ellen sent this link to observations from the last Chesterton Conference (which is always too far away!) 

One of my favorite writers/preachers in the diocese has put out a new article.  You may read Fr. D's article on smoking here.  Only if you liked it you might enjoy this article on smoking.

Here's a picture from the Jazz festival.  No, we were not dancing.  We were trying to read the winning tricket and I was leaning over to the microphone. 

K sent this in:  Oberlin Art Exhibit: "This exhibition includes over 30 works—sacred and secular, from both Northern and Southern Europe, and dating from the late 13th–early 17th centuries—on loan from the Yale University Art Gallery. These works will be hung alongside stellar examples of Renaissance art from the AMAM permanent collection."  See more here.  Thanks!

Here is the listing for the upcoming year of the First Friday Club of Greater Akron.  Other Diocese of Cleveland First Friday Clubs may be found here.

Stummbled across this.  Awesome!
Things have been so crazy around here I cannot remember if I have shared this with you or not.  Amanda sent this in about Imagine Sisters: "Imagine Sisters is a web and campus-based movement that aims to inspire the imaginations of young women to consider the beautiful call to consecrated life as a sister."  Read more about it here.  She adds, "Please spread the word about the movement in general... And if you know any priests or religious that would want to get involved or contribute please inform them about the movement and the contribution form!"
