I was looking a pictures of liturgical dancers* and found one at the bottom of this post that made me really sad. The Daughters/Sisters of Charity were my old high school nuns and I remember them with affection.
|St. Louise, co-foundess of the Daughters of Charity|
|St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, foundress of the American Sisters of Charity, it's rule was based on the French Daughters of Charity, founded by St. Vincent dePaul and St. Louise de Marillac|
|Servant of God, Sr. Blandina Segal of Sante Fe New Mexico|
In 1850, the Sisters of Charity decided to join with the French Daughters of Charity.
|Mother Clementine was the Superior of the order at the time of the unification.|
|A Canadian Sister of Charity performing a liturgical dance.|
* Liturgical dance is another sad example of the Protestantization of our Church. Seriously, why is this allowed? It's self aggandizement in the house of God. On a merely human level it's either immodest and an occasion of sin for some, or sadly ridiculous. The dancers either look like writhing Orion slave girls or they are old women who have clearly forgotten that white hair ill becomes a fool and jester.

"Theologians debating sex is a terrible sign:it was while the Byzantines debated that of the angels that the Turks arrived" Indro Montanelli
Until I saw this quote I didn't know who the late, Italian journalist, Mr. Indro Montanelli was but I can not get his remark out of my mind. The ISIS monsters have said they will attack Rome. Since they've done everything they've said they would do it's reasonable to assume that they mean this threat. My hope is that the many, many wealthy Arabs who shop in Rome and enjoy it very much will be able to speak to whomever it is who funds ISIS these days but these boys seem so far out of control that they might be like Frankenstein's monster once it left the castle laboratory. Islam, as a dangerous force has returned. Perhaps this is allowed as a scourge. Since our bishops are trying to turn the Faith into a Prostestantesque (and not even main line) thing with big sloppy kisses for publicly unrepentant sinners maybe it's time for the "Turks" to arrive again.

My uncle has stabilized enough to be moved from the Critical Care unit at the hospital into a rehabilitation hospital. He has a tracheotomy and is lethargic. If you speak or touch him he responds. The staff at the rehab hospital are all very kind and upbeat. I need to go to the nursing home and secure some of my uncle's things. The last time I was there it was obvious that someone had been watching his TV because the channel had been changed so I should probably get Rocky to take it home. I really hope I don't see the nurse practitioner or his RN because I am not confident that I'll be civil.
Thank you all for your prayers.
