FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "The ploughshare that breaks up the earth and opens up the furrow sees neither the seed nor the harvest."  Blessed Josemaria Escriva

QUOTE II:  "The higher a statue is raised, the harder and more dangerous the impact when it falls."  same source.
Therese sent in Pope Francis's New Year's Resolutions.  See them here.
Elena sent in this information about 16 free books on Kindle by G. K. Chesterton.
There was a relatively rare phenomenon that occurred in Akron this past week.  Snow rollers!  If you looked out side you would see what appeared to be hundreds of rolls of toilette paper left in yards and fields.
 But this is what toilette paper actually looks like.  Uncanny resemblance though don't you think?
 They are caused by wind rolling the snow across a field.  It was hard to take pictures of them for you however because every time I stooped to take a picture Sebastian would run up and eat whatever the camera was pointing at.
 But there were fields of them so I could fake him out by making him think I was taking a picture of one and then, turning, taking a picture of another.  These particular ones were in Forest Lodge Park across the street from the parish.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK:  Pat sent a video in for this Month of Life.  "Excellent video of Brit Hume clarifying what abortion really is (2 minutes)"  I can't post it because of the school filter.  You may go here to watch it.

Those snow rollers are wonderfully weird! We have almost an acre of untreed front yard, but nary a snow roller to be seen. Maybe it was too cold out here in the country for the snow to stick. I'm determined to find some somewhere, even if it means driving to West Akron just to see them!

(Funny about Sebastian going after whatever you try to photograph.)
