What is this? More than 80 people yesterday and more than 70 today, and no one leaves a comment, and no one signs the guest map. Have a great weekend everyone. It is cold here in Chicago. I will post the chant schedule tomorrow.

"I am Home, " he says, and indeed he is. Well, I missed something in his testimony, and I am sure he has it (him), but there is still time and I plan to have a conversation with him about it (him). Other than that, as the priest on OneRock, it was such a pleasure to read this. I even have to say that I am proud of him.

Flee to the USA? Why here? There is no such thing as real freedom here, nor is there respect for life, sad to say.

Ah... Ireland

It was 1998, my first trip to Ireland, it was a warm day as I remember it, and I was picking out sweaters in a shop in Ardara, hand knit, pure wool. They were a tad expensive, but I bought two and a wool blanket. The Bay Area never seemed to provide the days these sweaters were meant for, and I got up into the mountains rarely in the winter. Well, this Chicago morning was tailor made for this pullover. The Doctor said I need to exercise, walking for 30 minutes every day. I asked him how I was supposed to do that when it was so cold. He replied, "That is why God created wool." Well, it is 16 degrees outside as I write this preparing to venture out for a walk and a few errands. So It is Irish wool and memories of a warm spring day in Donegal...okay, Peggy it is your turn to comment.

Open our Eyes

Here is the PBLC Advent reflection for today, December 6

Yes, today's reflection is by yours truly. No, they still have not spelled my name correctly but that happens all the time and I am used to it.

Happy Feast of St. Nicholas.
