New Life!

Heartiest Kongratulations to the author of All Manner of Thing and his wife on the birth of their daughter, Iona Maria Scholastica Barthos Burrell, born last Tuesday. Being something of gyrovague Benedictine, I especially want to commend them for the choice of the name “Scholastica”. Prayers of good will and glad tidings, are certainly welcome, I’m sure.

Many Blessings, Many More!

    Hallelujah! I like the Scholastica connection, too. My birthday happens to be Feb. 10, St. Scholastica’s feastday, so I can’t help noting the evidence of mystical interconnectedness from blog to blog.

    And this child of many names was also born on the day of my tenth wedding anniversary. The mystical interconnectedness of it all!

  3. I am slow to find these kind words of welcome. Iona turns one month old today. Many thanks!
