FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: "But not everyone who is failing is a victim, and not everyone at the bottom wishes to rise." From Jordan Peterson's, "12 Rules for Life."
QUOTE II: "Besides, if you buy the story that everything terrible just happened on its own, with no personal responsibility on the part of the victim, you deny that person all agency in the past (and by implication, in the present and future, as well). In this manner, you strip him or her of all power." same source

Here is a review of what is going on at St. Sebastian this week: Blind Eye Restoration continues working on the mosaic to repair and stabilize it:
The people cleaning the exterior of the church and doing minor tuck pointing were at it today. You can see (hopefullythat about 3/4 of the facade was cleaned on the side to your left. Also there is going to be a patch taking place in the masonry that will take this part sightly over budget.
The chairs are removed again and the painters are readying the west wall for patching and painting. (They are also going to turn the diocesan flag over which has been hanging upside down and far out of reach for about 5 years.)
