Roshi Doshi has some nice photos of the outdoors in his blog these days.  Here’s his bit on the first snow where he lives:

Brother Adam writes about things that are irretrievably lost, except in memory, in his piece “The Death of Eurydice” in his blog.  You can find the whole thing here.  But to whet your appetite, here is where the penny dropped and he realized why he was resisting writing a piece: (more…)

More of the dancers were Latino. And the music was: Billy Ray Cyrus — Achy Breaky Heart.

As I watched this wonder, even before I watched Fr. Ed whaling a pinata and scads of children scambling after the candy he broke loose, I thought to myself, “Sometimes the Church works. Sometimes the Church really is a Kigngdom event right here and now.”
