TUESDAY QUOTE OF THE WEEK CLXLXI

FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: Sebastian, “I wish I liked Catholics more.”
Charles, “They seem just like other people.”

Sebastian, “My dear Charles, that is exactly what they’re not particularly in the country where there’s so few of them. It’s not just that they’re a clique . . . everything they think important is different from other people. They try to hide it as much as they can but it comes out all the time.” from “Brideshead Revisited”

QUOTE II: “Show me ONE Roman Catholic who has really understood his faith, devoutly practiced it, loved the Church, and never dreamed of leaving it, yet who, through serious study, discovered that the Episcopal Church is in fact the one true Church, the Church that Jesus Christ established, the Church that has been entrusted with the fullness of God’s truth and means of grace, the Church that Jesus Christ has authorized to speak authoritatively and even infallibly in His name. Show me a Catholic like that who was therefore compelled by the direction of the Holy Spirit to enter the Episcopal Church. Show me just ONE Catholic convert to the Episcopal Church of whom all of this is true.” Fr. Raymond Ryland, formerly a priest of the Episcopal Church in the book, “Surprised by Truth 2”

IN OTHER NEWS:

Lynn sent in this great video. You have to get past the first minute or so before it gets food. Here is the Catholic Pick Up Song:




Here is a cartoon sent in by a priest that organists will love. Brides will not. I could not stop laughing. WARNING: There is one inappropriate word. Send it to your Church musician friends. They'll get it.

Cory sent this video in. If you loved the Macy's video last time you might appreciate the same idea taking place at a mall.



Here are three videos from our bell choir performing with the St. Joseph bell choir:

St Joseph Church in Canton is an architectural gem . . . designed by the same guy from Boston who designed St Mary Church in Akron and a couple of churches in Cleveland. Were you there?

Waugh is a great author. I often paraphrase one of his more famous quotes saying, "If you think I'm an SOB, just imagine what I'd be like if I weren't Catholic."
