FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "We all come into existence as a single cell, smaller than a speck of dust.  Much smaller.  Divide. Multiply.  Add and subtract.  Matter changes hands, atoms flow in and out, molecules pivot, proteins stitch together, mitochondria send out their oxidative dictates; we begin as a microscopic electrical swarm.  The lungs the brain the heart.  Forty weeks later, six trillion cells get crushed in the vise of our mother's birth canal and we howl."  from Anthony Doerr's "All the Light We Cannot See."

Mary a priest friend about how to teach young adults about modern marriage issues.  " He said that it cannot begin with speaking against same-sex "marriage", but rather that it must begin with helping young people to see the beauty and the wonder of how we are made male and female, with the marvelous complementarity that we enjoy with one another. Then he went on to say that a beautiful example of a tool for doing just that is the Humanum video series, a beautiful series of short films on marriage and family. . ."  HERE is a link to the series.  Below is the trailer (1:42)

I was watching the TODAY show today and there was a commercial for the day of confession. What a great job done by the diocese getting the word out about the day of confession. Nice to see something positive about the Catholic Church on TV.
