FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUNDIt is time for the St. Sebastian Chesterton Society quotes.  There were too many from the last meeting to list all of them.  Here are some select few:
"A saint is a medicine because he is an antidote.  Indeed that is why the saint is often a martyr, he is mistaken for a poison because is an antidote."
"Therefore it is the paradox of history that each generation is converted by the saint who contradicts it most."
"Revolutions turn into institutions . . ."
" . . . and friends of Birth Control may lament that this philosopher (Thomas Aquinas) was needlessly added to the noble line of ruffians who kidnapped him."
"For while it is possible for a king to wish to be a saint, it is not possible for a saint to wish very much to be a king."
Mark sent this video in.  "Barbara Nicolosi-Harrington delivered a talk to the students and faculty of Christendom College on May 2, 2011. Nicolosi's talk, entitled "Why Hollywood Matters," explores the challenges facing Christians in the art of cinema and the art in churches."  or better entitled, "Why do Christians make bad art.)  One hour.  Thanks Mark.

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter:  "Did you know, that earlier this week the Vatican approved inclusion of St. Joseph's name in the main Eucharistic prayers at Mass?"  Read more here.
Interested in seeing what is going on with the Diocese of Cleveland Capitol Campaign:

I finally got a chance to watch the Barbara Nicolosi-Harrington talk, last night when I woke up and couldn't fall back to sleep. It was a great talk and really opened my eyes to beauty and art. Thanks for including this link in your blog.
