"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Is Toonces a boy's name or a girl's name?

Urban gardener.

I think it could go either way.

Sr. Mary Toonces.  Toonces-Bob Thornton.

It's quite a versatile name.

Did you know Toonces is actually a derivative of Anthony?  Tony.  Toony.  Toongabbie in Australia has a church dedicated to St. Anthony.  It's amazing what I know.


I made that up.


PSA:  Anyway - this is the second week of Easter, so there is no Easter Monday through Saturday this week - those titles are reserved for the Octave week.

Art:  Not mine - found it here.


  1. Love this little mouse so much I made it my cover picture on FB and have received lots of compliments on it :) So - thank you!

    I lived in that Parish, St Anthony's, Toongabbie. The priest had severe cerabal palsy, he was awesome. You bought back some memories. Colette

  3. My parents were going to name me Toonces, but a couple months before I was born, the family moved out of the trailer park. It just wouldn't have worked in the new neighborhood.


    1. I'm laughing so hard now!
