FINDING TRUTH WHEREVER IT MAY BE FOUND:  "There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counterclaimed by Satan."  C. S. Lewis quoted in Archbishop Chaput's, "Render unto Caesar"

QUOTE II:  "We can choose our side.  We can't choose not to choose.  Not choosing is a choice."  from the same book.


The new Fr. Simone is safely installed in the rectory at St. Sebastian.  Here he is on his first day of duty (which was this past Tuesday.  He is almost a full week here now.)
On the first weekend he was in charge of the Corpus Christi procession.  The kid did well AND he got done in under an hour.  It is his first miracle. 
I abandoned him on his first weekend here.  He had a 2 o'clock wedding at St. Sebastian and I had a 2 o'clock parishioner wedding in Cleveland at St. Steven - one of my favorite pieces of architecture in the diocese.  One of the altar servers gave me a nooks and crannies tour.  This is a shot of the groom and the bride's mother from somewhere high in the high altar.  Cool right?
Last night Fr. Jeremy Merzwieler spoke for our Theology on the Rocks.  I honestly did not think the crowds would continue but we had nearly 100 persons from St. Hilary, St. Paul, St. Vincent, St. Joseph, St. Nicholas, St. Charles Borromeo, St. Bernard and St. Sebastian.  Perhaps we should contemplate a larger venue.  Any ideas?
 And of course, Fr. Jeremy from St. Gabriel.  Special note:  New sound system on the way!
Why not have a wedding outside?  5 minutes.
