random thoughts

* The Franciscans of the Immaculate (one of the few orders that was actually growing), are going through a horrible time. I imagine that the FSSP, the Canons Regular, and the Institute of Christ the King are paying attention and if you attend a diocesan TLM, don't be complacent about it.  Thank God every single time you get to go to the TLM or a reverent by-the-book Novus Ordo Mass. There is an old expression: nobody ever wants water until the well runs dry. Benedict was not an exciting pope. He wasn't cute or fun. However, I think a lot of us are going to miss that old German.

* I don't ever want to go to Belgium.  Can you imagine what it must be like to be a sensitive little kid there right now? The poor things must wonder if they will be killed if they get sick.

*Is the occult really strong in Colorado? It has endured Columbine, Littleton, Aurora, Arapahoe and now you can go to jail if you don't bake two homosexuals a wedding cake. Has anybody asked out loud why this state seems to have a disproportionate amount of enraged, twisted young males? Fr. Rippenger, a exorcist once said that he was surprised by the huge number of witches in Nebraska maybe someone ought to look at Colorado.

*This young Dominican is a beautiful sight and seeing her and this cake really cheered me up today.

*Speaking of Dominicans this sister's order makes soap. 

 *Regina Magazine's priest issue was a delight to read.

*If you are a homeschooler or just want to enhance your child's education at home this looks interesting.
