FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND: “After the murder Danny – the opposite of the criminal genius – drove around in the dead man’s van and used the dead man’s credit cards until he got arrested. His life as a free man had been destroyed by drugs, and he’d been indoctrinated by racists in prison, but he loved Jesus.” from Saint James Harris Wood’s, “Saving Danny James”

QUOTE II: “Today’s civilization is full of people who have not the slightest notion of the character or the poetry of the night, who have never even seen night. Yet to live thus, to know only artificial night, is as absurd and evil as to know only artificial day.” from Henry Beston’s, “Night on the Great Beach of Cape Cod”


Mallory sent this State of the Unborn Address 4 mins.:

Fr. P sent this over to my office. I don;t know if I'd call it freaky but it is pretty cool. "This is freaky! This year we will experience 4 unusual dates...1/1/11, 1/11/11, 11/1/11, and 11/11/11. Now take the last 2 digits of the year you were born plus the age you will be this year and it WILL EQUAL 111.... Crazy, right!?!!?"

This week we celebrated St. Sebastian Day (and Sebastian the Dog celebrated his 4th birthday.) Elena sent this sight in with a collection of images of our great patron. Click here.

Do you need to smile for the next five minutes click here and watch this video sent in by Lynn. Apparently God has an English accent. We've been shellfish.

Here is three and a half more minutes of pure happiness. Knowing that I am Slovenian, Frank sent this video in. "The video is of the insanely popular Slovenian choir Perpetuum Jazzile (Vocal Ecstasy) singing the most played instrumental tune by Avsenik – Polka Na Golici (Trumpet Echo Polka)."

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter: "Pope Benedict XVI approved a miracle attributed to Pope John Paul II's intercession, clearing the way for the late pope's beatification on May 1, Divine Mercy Sunday. Pope Benedict's action Jan. 14 followed more than five years of investigation into the life and writings of the Polish pontiff, who died in April 2005 after more than 26 years as pope.

From the same source: "Two separate marriage initiatives in February affirm the priority of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) to support and strengthen marriage, said Bishop Kevin Rhoades of Fort Wayne-South Bend, Indiana, who oversees the bishop's efforts in this area.

"In a January 13 letter to all Catholic bishops of the United States, Bishop Rhoades, the new chairman of the USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family Life and Youth, highlighted World Marriage Day, National Marriage Week USA and numerous resources offered by the USCCB, saying, "I encourage you to share this information with the clergy and lay leaders of your diocese so that together we might strive to become 'marriage building' communities of faith and action."

Finally: Jeanette sent this article in about the identity of Catholic schools. Thanks!
