“…courtship’s end…”

Inspired by Jack Bauer and a comment by SEP, I’ve shown a bit more of my hand – or would that be a trotter?

Then it’s true! – Catholics DO read The Catholic Times!

For that reason, I hope everyone here at the Korrektiv makes some timie to visit Joyce Uhlir over at West Central Wisconsin Catholic.

Ms. Uhlir was kind enough to go through the trouble to hunt down me and then my editors for permission to reprint one of my articles from our diocesan newsaper. She’s doing good work up Nort’ of us here in southwestern Badgerland.  

And look! Better than stamps or coins or missionaries’ shrunken heads, the WCWC folks collect - Stained Glass windows!

As a side note, (the image under discussion is a bit provocative, so for those queasy about too much flesh – even tastefully done – a forwarning!) speaking of Rachel weeping for her children, here’s this with an explanation here. Stirring, to say the least. And a sign of hope, if Mr. Gjertson’s talent is a sign of anything…

Parting shot.

I am holding a bottle of tequila shaped like a rifle. Your argument is invalid.

This is my favorite version of "Downtown Train."

The Lansing Seminarian has an announcement to make.

I wrote a story!

When Miles the wannabe novelist sets out for his winey holiday in Sideways — the film that did for California Pinot Noir what E.T. did for Reese’s Pieces (kids, ask your parents) — he sets out from right here in San Diego. Why? Well, Rex Pickett (the guy who wrote the novel that inspired the film) might tell you that it’s because the book is based on a true story, and the true story is that he did a lot of wine-drinking while house-sitting in Ocean Beach. But who you gonna believe? I’ll tell you the real reason why: the story started here because it all started here. The wine thing.

Three bits from today’s readings.

“So they left the presence of the Sanhedrin, rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name.”

“O LORD, you brought me up from the netherworld; you preserved me from among those going down into the pit.”

“Amen, amen, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to dress yourself and go where you wanted; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will dress you and lead you where you do not want to go.”
