"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.

I've been really busy.

Yeah, so what.

The weather has been so perfect that I'm spending all of my time performing surgical trimming on my landscape.  I take breaks to pray - but for the most part, I'm too busy for anything else.  I've been using the Akathist Hymn for meditation while I take lunch break... I'm convinced most people no longer believe because they neglect devotion to Our Lady and have lost faith in the Incarnation.

That said, I haven't been too concerned about social issues or identity issues or priest-bishop issues or gay issues or blogagingedaging issues or methane helium issues.

If it rains or gets too hot, I may come indoors, turn on the laptop, and write a scalding review of the state of the blogosphere and crimes against humanity.  Other than that - who knows?

Oh!  Oh! And Jupiter aligned with Venus is so not the Star of Bethlehem.


  1. I decided it was time I got busy too and pray while doing so. I had a happy time yesterday between 4 pm until about 7 pm. It was hot outside but then some rain clouds moved in. I was sweeping the driveway and side porch, as the rain drops began to fall and the sweetness of the rain's gentleness and fresh smell filled me with happy memories. I thanked the Lord for such a gift. I decided I would stay out in the soft falling rain while enjoying the warm weather too. I raked the front yard, fought off some pesky ants then raked some more until the rain stopped.

    I looked up at the sky and smiled and thanked the Lord for such a gift. Sweet, gentle, cool breezes while I sighed happy to have worked with my hands instead of sitting around wringing them.

    Enjoy the outdoors Terry...tis good for our souls and rich for our hearts. <3

    1. Thanks Yaya - don't be scared about the explosive helium though.

  2. Terry,

    It has been terrible weather here in Chicago, I was off last week to do yard work and couldn't do anything...so what to do, grab a beer and a book.. however, all the rain are making my plants grow to epic proportions, they are practically ready to grab people off the sidewalk.
