Holy Thursday,  a young woman came in a side door of the church, walked up the aisle towards the front door and yelled "is this a Catholic church?  You all are gonna burn in hell.  Happy Easter!"  Very strange.

Thank you all so much for your prayers. 
Second test was apparently normal. 
Remembering you all in prayer today.

The doctor is saying I have non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver.  I'm getting a 2nd opinion. 
If you think of it, would you send up a little prayer. 
Thanks very much.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love commits me here,
Ever this night be at my side,
To light, to guard, to rule, and to guide.

Thanks Shin.  Yes, I believe she has helped me.  Grin

Hello!  I just wanted to mention that many Byzantines, when they enter the church, cross themselves by bowing deeply and reaching the hand down towards the ground, as if they were bringing the floor up to their forehead.  Sort of a substitute prostration I guess.  It looks so very reverent and I wish we all did it.  During Great Lent some actually do prostrations during the penitential vespers, or touch the floor with their hand then make the sign of the cross.  I love some of their traditions.     

Happy St. Francis day to all.

This reminds me of my favorite from the Imitation of Christ: 

But Mine eye hath spared thee, because thy soul was precious in My sight; that thou mightest know My love, and mightest always live thankful for My favors; and that thou mightest continually give thyself to true subjection and humility and bear patiently thine own contempt.

Worldlings think you don't have "a life."

Well, I would volunteer but you would have to put up with all my questions about how to do everything.  (Right now I can't even get my screen to be in the center of my laptop. ) You could email me.

I try.  I linger over passages, and a word or sentence(s) always seem to stand out even if just a little.  So I try to think on them for a while.  I like to use the readings from my Latin Mass missal for the day, but that doesn't always work if there's no feast day.  Then I use the Bible.   Smiley

Paul, I could have written your post (though not as well.)  I don't think I had to do much to stop loving the world.  I think one day I just realized the fact that I didn't love it and looking back, I wonder if I ever really did.  If I need confirmation, I just look at some of the sewer on TV, listen to talk/hate monger radio, or have conversations with folks who don't pay any  mind to Faith.   It requires self-affirmation.  Worldlings think you don't have "a life."   I also focus on bible study and classics.  I've lost trust in today's church, clergy and religious.  So I look to the saints of old.    Now I'm trying to break the attachments I have to "stuff" and downsizing.   My next step - ideally find a place to live where I could conveniently attend the traditional Mass every day.  Right now it's 12 miles away with traffic problems.     Smiley

I was the annoying little sister to 3 older brothers who did not seem crushed at an early age this way.  In my family I learned that they were always favored, more important.  (I'm not sure my dad was the boss though when it came to my mother!  Cheesy)  Anyway, it hurt back then, but I do fundamentally agree with you Mr. Shin.  I also blame men for not being men.  I'll have to listen to Fr. Ripperger on this.  Thanks.

Paul, when I was reading Bethlehemstar.com, the author said that one thing that caused the brightness over Bethlehem at Christmas was the retrograde motion of Jupiter, as I recall.  It was easy for me to imagine God's hand just moving the planets and stars to the position over earth where he wanted them.  I sometimes think the entire universe is God is Himself - since he is everywhere, in Him we live and move and have our being, He knows the number of hairs on our heads.  Anyway, doesn't science say that it's the solar system that revolves around the sun, not the universe?  Also, doesn't NASA have satellites that see the motion of the sun and Earth?  (Solar Dynamics Observatory, SOHO).  I really don't know if they prove anything, but it's interesting, or maybe I've watched too much Star Trek.

Well this is so very interesting Paul.  I also don't believe in science wholeheartedly any more.  I say wholeheartedly because it saved my life as a child when it gave us penicillin.  I will have to read this again a couple of times before it all sinks in, but I do like the idea of all the universe(s) moving around the earth.  Thanks. 

I'm glad you like it.

You bring up another interesting topic. You say science saved your life. But it was God who saved your life. Remember, God alone decides when each person will die. Have you read Trustful Surrender to Divine Providence by St. Claude de la Colombiere? The author talks about how everything that happens, good or bad (except for sin) is God's will. Using your case as an example, since God wanted you to live, He saved your life, and penicillin was just what He used to accomplish this. If there were no penicillin, He would have found another way. Conversely, if God had decided, for whatever reason, that your life should end at that point, no medicine would have worked.

Science gets all the credit, which should go to God.

Thank you Paul.  I can't believe I said science saved me.   sorry

What did the Egyptian border guard say to Mary and Joseph with the baby Jesus when they arrived in Egypt? 



How was your flight?
