Bad Habits

| | Comments (16)

I have an obnoxious habit of going to other people's sites and making comments. Now, I know that this is what comment boxes are for; however, I tend to say things that are really none of my business and really not conducive to helping anyone. I found myself writing a long drawn-out lecture elsewhere and suddenly realized how really very arrogant this sort of thing must sound. So, for those times in the past when I have done this one your sites (if any), I apologize. And for the future, I will try very hard to avoid this didactic and pedantic edge I seem to have. It isn't intentional--I just so desire that people get along that I rush in and make a fool of myself and aggravte everyone else. Fortunately, I think this has been done minimally, but I've noticed an increased frequency to it of recent date. Perhaps I should just hang around places where this temptation does not present itself.

Found I had to delete an obviously deranged comment from a poor soul who is in desperate need of our prayers. Why some feel the need to gratuitously insult, I do not know. But please be aware, it won't be tolerated here.

Under New Management

| | Comments (1)

I am pleased to announce an addition to the Patrons of this blog. Under the Mantle of Our Lady, this blog asks the triple patronage of St. John of the Cross (Carmelite Mystic and Poet), St Ephrem the Syrian (Mystic and Poet), and Pope John Paul the Great (Third Order Carmelite, Mystic, and Poet). I will look about for some appropriate pictures and add them accordingly along with a keyword from Pope John Paul the Great.

I thought of this, this afternoon. What better patron than a third order Carmelite poet who wrote prodigiously? I don't claim to be prodigious in output, but third Order Carmelite and erstwhile poet are both things I can claim.

And as no less an Authority than Cardinal Ratzinger has implied that Pope John Paul the Great is already interceding for us, figured I might as well give him his first established blog to take care of. Pope John Paul the Great please pray for me and for all who visit that we might be bold, living witnesses to the truth of the Gospel and the salvific power of our Lord Jesus Christ.

So you will find the comments of a number of cranks and detractors. Ignore them. I will do nothing about them. In a way, it gives voice to their own grief and turmoil. The great Pope would welcome these as well and love them as he loved all. Nothing will detract from the greatness of this man--no opinion to the contrary, no human opposition.

So the brilliant and scintillating discussion of John Paul the Great's poetry is lost to the world forever. Alas. Hope around noon I'll have time to do more, otherwise, I'm afraid it may be a fairly light day.

Please forgive the lack of felicity of expression in what follows as well as the types. These are produced in the very early morning after two relatively sleepness nights. I haven't proofed them and probably will not do so until well after this evening and a good night's rest. At least you'll know why things appear so odd.
