FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "It is in fact nothing short of a miracle (and we should keep this fact firmly before our eyes) that the hierarchical slave-based societies of our ancestors reorganized themselves, under the sway of an ethical/religious revelation, such that the ownership and absolute domination of another person came to be views as wrong."  from Jordan Peterson's, "12 Rules for Life"

QUOTE II:  "Strive for humility, because totalitarian pride manifests itself in intolerance, oppression, torture and death. Become aware of your own insufficiency - your cowardice, malevolence, resentment and hatred.  Consider the murderousness of your own spirit before you dare accuse others, and before you attempt to repair the fabric of the world.  Maybe it's not the world that's at fault.  Maybe it's you."  same source.

QUOTE III:  "First remove the beam out of your own eye, and then you can see clearly to remove the speck out of your brother's eye."  from Matthew's Gospel 7:5.


Fr. Jacob Bearer of St. Francis de Sales giving last week's Theology on Tap Akron talk.
The Akron City Parks Department is currently removing about a dozen sickly and dead trees from Forest Lodge.  Believe me, when they are done, you won't even notice that there are any trees missing.
Our Annual Eucharistic Adoration continues until 8PM tonight.  Come say hello.
New banners outside of the church.
New lighting at night.
E.P. sent in this very interesting picture.
The 185th anniversary of the first official Mass in the city of Akron will be celebrated NEXT Thursday with a Mass at St. Vincent at 7PM, Bishop Amos is the celebrant.  You are invited.

There were likely other Masses celebrated before this one as priests came through the area, but this is the first well documented Mass.
The Keller Consort will be performing in Zwisler Hall this Sunday at 4PM.  Free and open to the public.  They will be performing Renaissance and Baroque music on period instruments along with demonstrations of the instruments.  

I couldn't find them on line but here is some Renaissance music to give you a taste:

Hmmmm, now that is what I call a true dedication to historical accuracy -- not a trace of the Keller Consort online. How can we be sure they really exist if they're not on the internet?

Fr. V said...

"Ha," he snorted.

I like your new banners and the masts that hold them! They look nice from the street, and it reminds us there is something special happening.
