But who was the minister of the rite? The Evangelist is silent on this point. Imagination has accordingly allowed itself full scope, and painters have been pleased to introduce into their representations a priest in his sacerdotal vestments; but we have no authority for supposing that any priest came to the stable of Bethlehem to circumcise Jesus. The opinion of those doctors who believe that the minister of the circumcision of Jesus was Joseph appears the most probable.

This is impressive.  I am impressed to know how it works on different types of reading material.   I was easily moving along at 400wpm, and capable of keeping up at 500. 

Look for the "Click to spritz" icon in the upper right corner. 
 
The Future of Reading?

Want to experience the future of reading? Go to this link, and click the "click to spritz" icon at the top of the page:
http://www.spritzinc.com/the-science/

Spritz is a new company that believes it has a better way to read. After trying it, I actually think they might be right - at least for certain types of text. 

For each word, the eye seeks a certain point within the word, which we call the “Optimal Recognition Point” or ORP. After your eyes find the ORP, your brain starts to process the meaning of the word that you’re viewing.
...
When reading, only around 20% of your time is spent processing content. The remaining 80% is spent physically moving your eyes from word to word and scanning for the next ORP. 

Spritz works by eliminating the need for that eye movement. For me, it really sped up the reading process. What's more, it's a very compact UI, perfect for mobile devices. 

Check it out and let me know what you think. I'm curious.

Fascinating. I wonder if the ORP is the same across languages. I gave a feeling it may not.

Sermons: Audio Sancto  - 
 
The topic is the Apostolic Origins of Celibacy. 

Warning: If you are one that struggles to separate criticism from demonizing, spend your time on something other than this audio.  If you struggle to separate challenge of something that is not sinful from something that is sinful, spend your time on something other than this audio.

I do not usually delete comments , but I will delete any that contain material pitting the Western Church against the Eastern Church.  (or vise versa.) This is not an invitation to bash the East or the West, and such comments can't be tolerated. Do not demonize the priest giving this talk.   Do not demonize married priests.

I encourage any opinions (critical or supportive) provided that they have a factual / historical basis.  (References are encouraged.)  That one "feels" this or that is "right" or "wrong", has no relevance to a constructive conversation, and is likely result in "hurt" feelings.

I have love and respect for our Eastern Catholic Churches, and those who are a part of it.  In no way do I post this sermon to denigrate them.  In no way do I post this sermon to denigrate Married Priests.

I have a diabetic friend.  I would like to make him some oatmeal cookies.  Any recipes that you can recommend?   I would really like to avoid fake sweeteners.

I have not yet read much MacIntyre. In fact... I almost wrote him off because a close friend was attempting to tell me that MacIntyre claims that nothing is self evident, or that there are not first principles.   I think my friend might be been mistaken.  

I see that Feser references MacIntryre on occasion, so I looked into MacIntryre a bit more, and found a paper he wrote on first principals.  He noted that when speaking to modern philosophers, the language used in a Aristotelian Thomistic way... is bound to be misunderstood.   I do not see this to mean that he denies first principals. 

It will be awhile (I feel the need to study a bit more prior to cracking one of his books), but I plan to start with these:

Please forgive me...
For if you will forgive men their offences, your heavenly Father will forgive you also your offences. ( Matthew 6:14 ). With the beginning of Lent upon us, I ask God and you for the forgiveness of all my offenses conscious and unconscious, voluntary and inv...
