FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Religion is the answer to man's ultimate questions.  The moment we become oblivious to ultimate questions, religion becomes irrelevant, and its crisis sets in."  from Abraham Joshua Heschel's, "A Philosophy of Judaism"
QUOTE II:  "There are dead thoughts and there are living thoughts.  A dead thought has been compared to a stone which one may plant in the soil.  Nothing will come out.  A living thought is like a seed.  In the process of thinking, an answer without a question is devoid of life.  It may enter the mind; it will not penetrate the soul.  It may become a part of one's knowledge; it will not come forth as a creative force."  same source

Had a nice visit at Walsh Jesuit High School and had my picture taken with St. Ignatius.
From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter, "Did you know, this Friday, November 1st is All Saints Day, a Holy Day of Obligation?  All Saints day is a holy day of obligation in the Catholic Church. The feast is held on November 1st each year commemorating all Christian saints, known and unknown. It was first celebrated by Pope Boniface IV in 608. The term saint stems from the Latin, "Sancti" which means 'holy ones.'"  Are we blessed or what?  Mass at St. Sebastian are 7PM vigil, 9AM, 5:15 vigil Mass, 7PM.  Read more here.
The pope has 10 million on his Twitter account.  There's using social media for you.  Read more here.

I KNEW you'd like the book! Heschel is a giant. I read everything, even the hard to find out of print, he wrote. Brilliant mind and he put it to work with his soul. He marched with Martin Luther King Jr. In fact, King called him a great prophet. Interesting, eh?
