FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "A young man may keep himself from vice by continually thinking of disease.  He may also keep himself from it by continually thinking about the Virgin Mary.  There may be a question about which method may be more reasonable, or even about which is the more efficient.  But surely there can be no question about which is the most wholesome."  from G. K. Chesterton's, ""Heretics"
QUOTE II:  "Nobody has any business to use the word 'progress' unless he has a definite creed and a cast iron code of morals.  Nobody can be progressive without being doctrinal . . . For progress by its very name indicates a direction; and the moment we are in the least doubtful about the direction, we become, in the same degree, doubtful about the progress."  same source
Today and next Tuesday mark the last two organ recitals at St. Sebastian for the Advent season.  The noon hour of adoration is accompanied by a local organist.  This Sunday at 3:30 is our annual Advent Lessons and Carols.  Also this Sunday St. Sebastian, St. Vincent, and St. Bernard will have the confessionals open and manned from 6:30 to 8:30PM!  Get in while you can!
A couple of people sent THIS in:  Pope wishes to de-stygmafy autism. 
This three minute video I found while looking something up on the St. Bernard website:

Regarding the religious life video, it's great that the internet can show glimpses of this life.

When my son was in second grade at the school, we took a class trip to the Cleveland zoo, where one of the boys saw some Amish women. He exclaimed, "Look, nuns!"

He apparently knew the concept, but (in the early 1990s) nuns were not to be seen in our parish. Not even in old photographs. We had two in "plain clothes."
