FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: If you were to bring together the saints worthy of canonization to collaborate in the same work, they would probably be the cause of suffering to each other." Blessed Columba Marmon

QUOTE II: "What happened to the beautiful baby who was Hitler?" Fr. Groeschell


Russ sent in this interesting and relaxing video. Pretty cool! Thanks Russ. (Approx 4.5 minutes.)
Martin sent this in and it is a little late in posting: Prof. Michael Barber's latest Liturgy Reflection video on the Mass readings for September 6th meditates on the meaning of the healing of the deaf man. We hope you enjoy it and would consider sharing it with your readers! You can find older reflections on our Liturgy Reflection channel.

GOOD NEWS EVERY BODY: You may remember Chad Vader: Day Shift Manager. Well season 2 is out and I am so happy! But it is not as good as season one. If you have not seen season one here is the first episode to give you a taste. WARNING: Some inappropriate language.)

Since we have just finished celebrating Labor Day the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter asks, "Did you know, the Catholic Worker Movement is grounded in a firm belief in the God-given dignity of every human person? Today over 185 Catholic Worker communities remain committed to nonviolence, voluntary poverty, prayer, and hospitality for the homeless, exiled, hungry, and forsaken. Catholic Workers continue to protest injustice, war, racism, and violence of all forms."

From the same source: Do want to know what the diocese is saying about the current flu scare?

Chad Vader... I was surprised not to see Fr. Strebler in the credits as either producer or writer.

"What happened to the beautiful baby who was Hitler?" Fr. Groeschel

I do know that Adolph had a "troubled" relationship with his "authoritarian" father, who often beat him. (Interesting that he later called Germany "the Fatherland"). I once also saw a documentary of some sort on the Independent Film channel which gave similar information on the father of Mao Tse Tung (his father was harsh and frequently beat him). And the same for Joseph Stalin--his father was an alcoholic who (you guessed it) frequently beat him. I detect a pattern here.

The Diocese of Cleveland post on H1N1 states:
"Try to avoid close contact with sick people."
What happened to the corporal works of mercy? Next thing you know, we'll be leaving dead bodies all over the place.
