TUESDAY QUOTE OF THE WEEK CCCXXXVII

FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUNDFrom this month's St. Sebastian Chesterton Society:  from "When Wine Was Red:
QUOTE I:  "If (man) is not the image of God, then he is a disease of the dust.  If it is not true that a divine being fell, then we can only say that one of the animals went entirely off its head.
 
QUOTE II:  "And thus no animal ever invented anything so bad as drunkenness - or so good as drink."
 
QUOTE III:  "In such things to be careless is to be sane: for neither drunkards nor Muslims can be careless about drink."
 
from "Cheese"

QUOTE IV:  "If all the trees were bread and cheese there would be considerable deforestation on any part of England where I was living."
 
QUOTE V:  "You are not approaching Nature in one of her myriad tints of mood as in the holy act of eating cheese."
 
IN OTHER NEWS:
 
Pat sent this article in from the Wall Street Journal concerning single parent families. 
 
Annie Dixon sent this in.  I like it a lot!  Pius, fun stuff.  Hope you think it is as cool also.  Look here.
 
From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter: “In his bi-weekly lecture focusing on the works of Vatican II, Cleveland Bishop Richard Lennon cited the developments at the Second Vatican Council which had a profound effect on how the Church trains and develops its priests.”  See video here.

Quote from my daughter: "I'm not having any wine tonight because when I have one glass, having two seems like SUCH a good idea."
