FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "[I]t was highly significant of a universal humanitarian need that the three great cosmopolitan communions, which all disagreed about the choice of a sacred day, all agreed in having one."  from G. K. Chesterton's, "On Abolishing Sunday."

QUOTE II:  "It means that it might be possible so to organize machinery that the whole life of man on earth should be one of leisure and not of labour.  I will not pretend to discuss whether it would be mechanically possible.  But it is time we began to discuss whether it is morally desirable."  from G. K. Chesterton's, "The Ideal of a Leisure State."


The top two quotes are from the last Chesterton meeting.  As part of that meeting we listened to a radio play that dramatized one possible for of a future Leisure State.  It is an episode from, "The Truth," which is sometimes brilliant and sometimes just Okay.  HERE is the specific episode entitled, "The Last Job."  I think it is about 18 minutes.  If you are looking for a second recommendation of one of their plays that might be a little gross but thought provoking, I recommend, "Miracle on the L Train."  I used part of it in a homily recently.

Some events coming up to which you are invited:

It's been a little while since our last ToT Akron due to a weather cancellation and Easter.  But we are back on track!
Fr. Matthew Pfeiffer will be speaking at the next Theology on the Rocks:
Mark your calendar now for this summer's Jazz and Wine Festival with Ernie Krivda!
We have announced the restoration of St. Sebastian church.  People ask, "What will it look like?" to which I respond, "Look at it now and imagine it new, bright, and clean."  It is truly a restoration.  But if you have questions or concerns, there is a Town Hall Meeting coming up!
This is just awesome.  The man knows me.
Fr. K sent in this video.  Thanks!  Approximately 18 minutes.:
