Another interesting Orson Scott Card Essay. Don't know the exact contours of my agreement, but the flow tends to make sense.

A Minority Faction

I have considered a point brought forth some time ago by Tom at Disputations and have decided that he is right, although not necessarily for the reasons he proposes. Therefore I shall join him in eschewing "Great" attached to the name of our former Pontiff, John Paul II and shall use instead "Magnificent." It really is the proper term for a pope so fully devoted to the Blessed Virgin. Magnificat--Magnificent--it makes sense etymologically AND in fact.

Mr. Spamman.

As TSO lets down his hair, he gets progressively more interesting (although he was always extremely interesting) and amusing. For those who don't know him, you would do well to seek him out--adds a bit more levity to the blogosphere. Twice the humor with less than half the angst of your average blogsite!

If you've ever wondered why I sign off "shalom" Talmida gives you insight into the word that I learned long, long ago. At this time I decided that the Word that was with God was indeed Shalom. So, while Pax Christi approaches the fullness of meaning I want to convey in my send-off, it is shalom, the Word, I wish for all of you. Thanks again Talmida.

Always perceptive, Unapologetic Catholic writes about the potential for alienating people from the Church, from the truth. He makes some very good points.

Writing a Novel


Not me, but Ron who is blogging less as a result. Stop by, read, and give him some encouragement. We need as many catholic voices in the literary marketplace as we can muster--AND Ron is writing in a genre that can reach a great many people--the mystery. Go and read about it. It is tremendously exciting.

I don't do business with E-Bay. Can't afford to with my voracious appetite for books and such. MamaT got this welcome news today:

We understand that the listing of the Eucharist was highly upsetting to Catholic members of the eBay community and Catholics globally. Once this completed sale was brought to our attention, we consulted with a number of our users, including members of the Catholic Church, concerning what course we should take in the future should a similar listing appear on our site. We also consulted with members of other religions about items that might also be highly sacred and inappropriate for sale. As a result of this dialogue, we have concluded that sales ofthe Eucharist, and similar highly sacred items, are not appropriate on
eBay. We have, therefore, broadened our policies and will remove those types of listings should they appear on the site in the future.

Praise God. And thanks to Julie D. I'm off to thank E-bay
