FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "Man does not live by insight alone; he is in need of a creed, of a way of living.  Insights are not a secure possession; they are vague and sporadic.  They are like divine sparks, flashing up before us and becoming obscure again, and we fall back into a darkness, 'almost as black as that in which we were before.'"  from Abraham Heschel's, "God in Search of Man"

That is an excellent icon of St. Anthony! And what a good day for Fr. Simone to start his ministry here in Akron!

I miss Bishop Lennon. I realize not everyone feels as I do. But he was very good to my merged, and then unmerged, parish. He did his best. God bless and keep him.

God bless you, Father V, and Father S and everyone at St. Sebastian
