5th grader: Did Noah and his family eat any of the animals on the ark?
Me: Yeah, they ate the unicorn.
5th grader: WHAT?
Me: And the chimera.
5th grader: How is that possible? It has a snake head!
Me: And they ate a dragon, too.
5th grader: Are you serious?
Me: Of course not!

Me: What season is it?
3rd grader: Advent.
Me: What color do we wear?
3rd grader: Purple.
Me: Do we ever wear a different color?
3rd grader: Yeah, pink.
Me: Does anyone know what we call the Sunday that we wear pink? It's name starts with "g."
3rd grader: Glossary!

They were doing so well, too. :)

I came back from the auto-repair garage and they found nothing wrong with my car.

So, why was my car smoking on Sunday? I think my car was holding a conclave!

Thanks to the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, priests will be wearing white after Labor day.

+jack Brennan Oh. Is it just shoes? I just heard you can't wear white at all after labor day. Good to know.

Question of the day

3rd Grader: Fr. Carter, why did Adam and Eve trust a talking a snake?

I was honestly stumped. :)

Great question!

Why do we listen to the devil? Because he tells us what we wish to hear. They were prideful and thought themselves entitled to the fruit of the tree of knowledge and the devil whispered just that in their ear. They ignored the fact the info came from a snake just the same as we do.

Can anyone find any holes in this?

The only problem here is that it completely misunderstands Lucas's problem as a movie maker and specifically the problem he was trying to solve in Ep1.

Lucas was convinced he was making a movie "for kids" and woefully underestimated the age of the kids he was making the movie for. In return of the Jedi, it should have been wookies, not ewoks, but he wasn't trying to make a good story he was trying to add "kid appeal".

Lucas realized he had a problem with Ep1. Real Jedis are boring--really boring. Sure you can attack them and get a few cool action sequences out of them (though they are so awesome it is hard to threaten them properly), but as characters they are dangerously unappealing.

He over-compensated. He needed another "C3PO/R2R2" comic relief, but since the Jedis were much more troublesome than the old cast in terms of appeal, he went downright goofy.

Jar Jar is the symptom, the Jedis are the problem.

I spent my Halloween at my very first High School Kairos retreat. It was an awesome experience hearing many of the student leaders express their faith and I can tell a lot of hearts were healed.

My pastor yesterday said, "Doctor Who? Isn't that an old show?"

Apparently he didn't hear that it started again a decade ago.

Bishop-elect Baron tells a story connecting Colbert to Tolkien to Cardinal Newman. But, the story is really about God's providence. Worth watching.

I just funded this very unusual game design on Kickstarter. It looks very fun!
Patrick Leder is raising funds for Trove: The Crystal Caverns on Kickstarter! The ultimate asymmetric cave-crawling adventure where you become the brave Knight, Goblin horde, massive Dragon, or malevolent Cave.
