FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND - "The self esteem movement promotes feeling good about yourself even when it is not justified. I don't think people can feel good about themselves without some suffering in their background . . . Do we really want 290 million self-absorbed people preoccupied with personal happiness?" Gregg Krech

QUOTE II - "If you ever reach total enlightenment while drinking beer, I bet it makes beer come out your nose." Unknown.


Here is a site that provides access to all kinds of Catholic links.

Here are some more pictures of the Chicago "Bean" that appeared here on Saturday. (Yes, my bald pate was in the picture Adoro.) This might give you a better idea of what it is.

Sorry for the non sequitur, but I found that reference to the seven day week in Vatican II you asked about, Father. The appendix to Sacrosanctum Concilium deals with possible amendments to the liturgical year for certain aras of the world. It strictly forbids any calendar that eschews the seven-day week and, especially, any calendar that abandons Sundays.

Besides the reverence for the symbolism of the number seven that you pointed out in an earlier post, I imagine the bishops were still remembering the French Revolution, which for ten years substituted a whole new calendar and, I believe, did away with Sundays entirely.

I love your second quote. Personally, if there's a chance beer will come out my nose, I would not want to reach total enlightenment. Yet another argument against centering "prayer"!

And now I understand the previous phot...makes perfect sense! Very cool.

Father, at least you don't have to worry about frizzy hair or putting it in a pony tail on humid days. (That probably wasn't a top concern for you, anyway...)
