FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: “People are losing the ability to enjoy Christmas by indentifying it with enjoyment. When once they lose sight of the old suggestion that it is all about something, they naturally fall into blank pauses of wondering what it is all about. To be told to rejoice on Christmas day is reasonable and intelligible if you understand the name, or even look at the world. To be told to rejoice on the twenty-fifth of December is like being told to rejoice at quarter past eleven on Thursday week. You cannot suddenly be frivolous unless you believe there is a serious reason for being frivolous.” from G. K. Chesterton’s, “The New War on Christmas.”


Sorry for the late post – Tuesday being posted on Wednesday yet! Well, Christmas is almost upon us and I had an all day meeting yesterday that I thought was only going to be an hour. Sorry. I’ll try to post over the next two days but no guarantees!


Some of you asked for a better picture of the rug mentioned on Monday. Apparently this picture was not sufficient:
Here is the actual rug as it appears in the chapel of the rectory:
Thanks to Miss Linda here is a some Christmas cheer:

A friend of Fr. Pf's was flying over the parish in the Goodyear blimp and took this picture of St. Sebastian Parish.

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter: "The Diocese of Cleveland, Department of Communications has assembled the following TV Mass schedule for the Christmas and New Year season." Read more here.

From the same source: "Did you know, you only have one more month to experience the "Treasures of Heaven" exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art? This exhibit of Medieval European religious art is open now through Monday, Janaury 17, 2011" Read more here.

And I'll end it there so that you get a post today!

Father, Thanks for your faithfulness to Adam's Ale during this busy time.

[I'm having a problem viewing the full screen of the videos--am I the only one? The right edge of the film is cut off because the column of text is narrower than the videos. Can something be done to improve this situation?]
