FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "When the devil comes, he comes on angel's wings."  from Don Window's, "The Cartel"


Julie Billiart School of St. Sebastian, Akron has a new web page HERE.

I just thought this was funny considering all of the controversy coming out of Rome . . .
This is more difficult to see than I thought it would be . . . If you wanted to know what is involved in tuning a pipe organ . . . There is a guy at the key board and another guy that must visit EVERY pipe.  After he tunes it (sometimes by hand, sometimes by long stick) he yells NEXT and they move on to the next pipe.  It took most of the day yesterday.
I haven't been to the University of Akron in a LONG time.  I had to go the other day and thought that, while I was there, I would check out my old stomping grounds at Gazzetta Hall.  It is much different.(Thank goodness they got rid of the silver foil wallpaper!)  Here are some plaques I always appreciated that are still there.  They still influence my priesthood to some extent.

The next Theology on Tap Akron Facebook page can be found HERE.

Just a question. How come the school is not called "St. Julie Billiart"? Is there some problem recognizing that she is a saint?

The original name of the school was St. Julie Billiart School of St. Sebastian Parish but the Sister of Notre Dame insisted that since the original school was founded BEFORE she was a saint and wanting to keep the ties between the school more recognizable, they insisted that we remove the "St."
