FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "You don't decide not to be Catholic anymore - Catholicism is something that soaks into your skin like vitamin D.  You can't just stand there as the sun pours down upon you, saying, None for me thanks."  from Lynn Coady's, "The Antagonist"
QUOTE II:  "I think now that anyone who believes in God, even a little, can't help but yearn toward the evangelicals.  Let's face it, there's is the church we really want.  We want to be swept up.  We want to sob and roll around on the ground.  We want to feel the Holy Spirit as a living force and we want it to swoop down and kick us in the (*ss).  We want it to heal our souls.  We want it to remove every last doubt we ever entertained about our randomness as creatures of the earth.  We want certainty.  We want to see the face of Jesus on a grilled cheese sandwich.  We want to throw away our crutches.  We want Satan, and we want him to want us too, so we can always be at war, because war makes our daily (BS) righteous and significant.  We want to hear the voices - the ones that tell us what to do, and tell us how we're loved.  We want to be as little children and believe."  same source.

From the Diocese of Cleveland Enewsletter: "The Diocese of Cleveland, in conjunction with the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops asks you to "stand with us" in defending conscience rights! Get informed, advocate and pray about this important issue."  Read more and see a video here.

Ha! I'm not sure if the second quote was meant to be funny, but that has to be the funniest thing I've read in awhile. Thanks for the laugh!
