FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "'Man has places in his heart which do not yet exist,' wrote Bloy, 'and into them enters suffering, that they might have existence.'"  from Archbishop Chaput's, "Render unto Caesar"

QUOTE II:  "We cannot reject the church and her teachings, and then simultaneously claim to be following Jesus Christ or the Scriptures.  For Catholics, the believing community is the church, and without the church as the guardian of Christian life and protector of God's Word, Christianity could never have survived."  same source.


Taking Bullying out of Schools is an article about the Julie Billiart Schools.  Read more HERE.

If you want to do something to help open the school . . . we have LOTS of paint and LOTS of paint brushes and LOTS of walls that need to be painted.  We just need painters.  If you are looking for service hours/ways to help/want to do community service . . . below is your opportunity!
Went to an event where they fireplace utensils were HUGE to the point of humor - so I had my picture taken with one.  Is this creepy?
We are only days away from Fr. Leonard departing to more flamingo covered pastures.  Friends wanted to make us dinner at the rectory before he left.  I have never in my life had a steak this big.  Three days later and I am STILL picking away at it.  It was difficult even to get it all on the plate (and we have extra large plates!)  Mmmmmmmmmm.
Is this what it takes?

Slightly creepy. But nice beard!

You can have a beard. You can post pictures of yourself in the mountains. You can even chop wood with a vintage axe. But none of that makes a man. Our culture is fighting to diminish manhood by defining it with "manly" things. But they're not fooling anyone. There isn't a good woman on this planet who wants a burley outdoorsman who can't control his temper or who can't provide for his family or who can't commit to a relationship or who can't raise his own children. Men, stop trying to trick the world that beer and whiskey make you honorable or cavalier. The look is empty and if you can't back it up with integrity, spiritual maturity, and Godly leadership you just end up with a boy trying to fill the boots of the man he'll never be.-- Dale Partridge

Thought this was a good quote for your Tuesday blog!
