Personal Reflections: August 2007 Archives

So the vacation is drawing to a close. Tomorrow I will be in transit back to CA hoping to be rested enough to preside at the evening Liturgy.

Thanks to all the CT folks. It has been grand. It has been a joy to be in the same book, on the same page, and of the same mind. That does not happen all the time at home, but at least the choir loft at home has a kindred spirit.

I will try to get the pics uploaded and on to the blog before the weekend.

When I get home I may have some more photos to add to the blog, but in the meantime you can hop on over to Catholic Light to hear Richard's report on yesterday's providential encounters. It is always a joy to meet up with others who are in the same book, on the same page, and of the same mind.

I have been enjoying being immersed in the mysteries of the Eucharist in the very prayerful context of the Monastery of the Glorious Cross in Branford, CT. It is curious that most of the time when Fr. Mark and I concelebrate we are most often wearing red.

On Saturday I gave a short conference to the sisters on the Motu Proprio, and then preached at the Mass. This morning I will be chanting the Mass with Fr. Mark and the sisters.

St. Jerome


Hmmm.....It doesn't mention our devotion to the Word of God which we have in common.

You’re St. Jerome!

You’re a passionate Christian, fiercely devoted to Jesus Christ and his Church. You are willing to labor long hours in the Lord’s vineyard, and you have little patience with those who are less willing or able to work as you do. Your passions often carry you into temptation zones of wrath, lust, and pride.

Find out which Church Father you are at The Way of the Fathers!

I will be leaving for Connecticut in the morning. I do not think I will have much in the way of email access. I will be returning in time for the Feast of the Assumption on the 15th and my Birthday on the 17th.

There was a news report last night about an ABC correspondent who announced she has breast cancer.

First of all, let us pray for her and for all who are afflicted with this disease. The news report said that 250,000 women will be diagnosed with it this year.

The video report stated that one in eight women will have breast cancer, up from one in 20 in 1960. It also stated that they do "not understand" why there is this increase.

Then the video said that one reason is that there is "more estrogen in our bodies for longer periods of time", and that "estrogen nourishes cancers cells like it was fertilizer."

They failed to mention that the reason for this increased estrogen for longer periods of time was ARTIFICIAL birth control.

It amazes me that in this world where we long for organic or natural products, we take for granted that the ONLY means for birth control are ARTIFICIAL.means.

Do we need any other proof that the news media does not give us the whole story, and that Paul VI was right.
