Are you just visiting or are you a regular adorer?
Heaven knows what calls a person to the Adoration chapel at a parish. For the last year I have gotten into the slight habit of going there at around noon or one in the afternoon, on my day off. It is just then that a little window of time seems to open, bet...

The geometry of spring, and so on
You can't hear the frogs peeping, but they were.  The march of the trees?  "Spring beauty," I think.  This is what they call a "controlled burn." Look closely.  As evening falls ... did you know Saturn and Mars were keeping company with the gibbous moon at ...

I've decided to go for a Mediterranean look
One of the television networks that have sprouted so abundantly in recent years, which show reruns of everything that ever was, has been regularly broadcasting To Catch a Thief . Whoever owns the network must have bought the rights to a lot of Cary Grant fi...

"Sono la Vergine della Rivelazione"
Yesterday I came across the pleasant little story of another apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary. I say "another," because of course there have been many, and you may know much more about them all than I do. I have only learned about Lourdes by watching t...

Beware translations
Who knew that you have to be aware of what translation of the Bible you use, not only so as to avoid flaccid modern language, but to avoid resurgent paganism in the twisted and disguised text itself? For example -- In the beginning God created the heaven an...

Daily prompt?
I had been working (dear things), on a long turgid piece about "committing the enormity" of reading a papal document, Pope Francis' recent Gaudate et Exsultate ; and about joining the Word on Fire 'Community's' Facebook page, where that turned out to be the...

Go to the cast-off book sales
I'm reading a biography of Jacqueline du Pre (Elizabeth Wilson, Jacqueline du Pre: Her Life, Her Music, Her Legend, Arcade, 1999). It stood out, dark, sleek, serious, from the other castoffs on the library's used book sale shelves. The name stirred a vague ...

I met a gnostic
I have met a gnostic, and now at last I understand better what gnosticism is. Years ago in one of Paul Johnson's books, perhaps his History of the Jews, he wrote that "gnosticism is like a vine that winds itself around the trunk of a healthy religion" -- in...

Comfort zones
Go outside your comfort zone, and where does it get you? I went outside mine a few weeks ago, to borrow from the library a novel written in the 21st century. Normally I have a theory and rules about that, i.e., they're not that good so don't bother. I am su...
