TUESDAY QUOTE OF THE WEEK CCLXXVII

FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Of all the tricks played by story tellers on their willing victims, the cheapest is the deception known in English as The End.  An ending is an arbitrary thing, an act of cowardice or fatigue, an expedient disguised as an aesthetic choice or, worse, a moral commentary on the finitude of life."  Michael Charbon's "The Amazing Adventres of Kavalier and Clay"
 


QUOTE II:  "There's nothing like a shovel full of dirt to encourage literacy."  from The Blind Assasin
 
IN OTHER NEWS:
 
Frank sent in a game called "The Ball."  If you do not use a mouse on your computer forget it.  Click on the ball and it changes color.  Kind of mindless but then again - that's what games are for.  WARNING:  Addiction level MEDIUM.  The Ball.

Kate sent this in:  "Hello Brothers and Sisters. We wanted to inform you of a pressing need which has developed for the Sisters of the Most Holy Trinity at Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine in Euclid. The Holy Sisters have lost the use of their elevator, and it is beyond repair. The cost of a new elevator is $100,000. The elevator is a necessity, not a luxury, as many of the Sisters are elderly, some with vocations that began 70 years ago. The Sisters of The Most Holy Trinity have been wonderful supporters and promoters of 40 Days for Life campaigns since its inception here in Cleveland. We wanted to reciprocate by promoting the fundraiser that will occur at the Shrine on Sunday, December 9th. This unique fundraiser is being sponsored by the JPII Apostolate which is holding a special Advent Program. All of the proceeds for registration are being donated to the Holy Sisters to help defray the cost of the new elevator."  Read more here.
