random thoughts on a rainy wednesday night

1. If Tom Cruise gets a Catholic wedding we'll all know that the Church in Italy is in serious disarray.


2. I keep putting it off but I realize that I really do have to buy Randy Engel's book, The Rite of Sodomy.

3. We went to the Dominican House of Studies for night prayer on Sunday night. It was lovely. Praying and listening to the chanting of all those young seminarians was a priceless experience.


4. I wanted to have a set of Gregorian Masses said for the repose of my father's soul. The secretary at the parish office didn't even know what I was talking about and grudgingly allowed me to pay for only ten. I just found this web site and will arrange to have the Masses said by a priest with the Catholic Missions Office.

Wow I thought Tom Cruise was into the Scientology garbage!

He is but he and poor Katie used to be Catholic and they want the trappings of a Catholic Nuptial Mass.

I hope the Vatican refuses to marry them. That's bending the rules and they shouldn't.

I think the Cruise story is just a rumor...don't forget he is divorced...twice.

Hopefully this is sloppy journalism! There's no way he'd be entitled to an RC wedding.

I hope so. If for no other reason that it gives scandal to all the people who broke off relationships because they could not be married and to all those who are patiently struggling for annulments so that they can have a valid, sacramental marriage.
