A Few Things for Saturday... ADRIENNE'S CORNER - June 18, 2016 that caught my eye. First off, as I was coming home last night, Meghan McCain was on the radio in the car. Poor Meghan, who has a job in radio because of her father, John, really is a very dim bulb. I've never felt like she was a mean person, just a bit slow and, oh so, Pollyanna. She's prattling on about how Trump's temporary ban on immigration from terrorist countries was unconstitutional. Actually, it's not, but why let a little thing like facts get in ...http://adriennescatholiccorner.blogspot.com/2016/06/a-few-things-for-saturday.html

Miracles for Canonization and the Example of Venerable Matt Talbot*  VENERABLE MATT TALBOT RESOURCE CENTER - June 7, 2016 ... of the Irish alcoholic Venerable Matt Talbot (d. 1925). He says the Holy Father should just go ahead and declare him a saint, although Talbot's intercession hasn't produced a miracle. His argument is that, in the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis should show mercy to the ever-growing legion of those addicted by drugs or alcohol by canonizing the former drunk from Dublin. Doing this, he argues, would show addicts the Church understands that their affliction isn't a weakness, but a true sickness, and ...http://venerablematttalbotresourcecenter.blogspot.com/2016/06/miracles-for-canonization-and-example.html

Remembering the Venerable Matt Talbot on Trinity Sunday Καθολικός διάκονος - May 22, 2016 Being Trinity Sunday today, I am thinking a lot about my heavenly friend, the Venerable Matt Talbot.

Reading about Matt the other day I came across this: "Decades later [after Matt's death], a visiting ...http://scottdodge.blogspot.com/2016/05/remembering-venerable-matt-talbot-on.html

Beginnings and Endings, and Beginnings DO NOT BE ANXIOUS - March 25, 2016 ... it is not the end. Today, we also celebrate an ending in Mary's life, although it is an ending we often don't consider, but it is, for her, a radical one.

You shall conceive in your womb and bear a son. Being an unmarried virgin, Mary didn't understand, and so she humbly asked: How can this be? And she heard in reply: With ...http://do-not-be-anxious.blogspot.com/2016/03/beginnings-and-endings-and-beginnings.html

Occasional Catholics, Lenten Rules, and the New Translation GOTTA SING GOTTA PRAY - March 7, 2016 ... at work, I met a friend at a new local bar in my neighborhood and had some "small bites" and drinks to unwind after the week.

A couple in their late 30's sat next to us at the bar and I watched as they carefully ordered food that had no meat, and I commented about them being "good Catholics." They responded, "We don't go to church anymore, but we still observe the no-meat-on-Friday rule." I found out in the conversation that ensued that they ...http://gottasinggottapray.blogspot.com/2016/03/occasional-catholics-lenten-rules-and.html

It (and donations we got offline) helped pay for almost all of the expenses to get my car running again. It's not 100%, obviously. We had some major communication issues with the mechanic and the car looks good for how bad it was after the accident. There are a few things that can be overlooked.
