It's always amusing to check out the search keywords people use to get to your website. For this blog the most noteworthy include: aquinas prostitute poker, pimp jesus, and anti-christ. Who would have thought the Google algorithm would place me anywhere near the top for anti-christ? I do hope the pimp jesus person got what he/she was looking for.

So the Polar Bear Plunge is back. I'm sure you're all very excited to hear about that. Especially anyone who said they would donate and forgot. Our God is a God of second chances! ;o) Second attempt occurs on March 8. This time I won't tell Ruby.

Last weekend I met baby Evie (kinda like Eevee, except not), who is very cute and let me hold her for an hour without making many audible noises. Next time I can bring her the accidental baby hat, so long as her head doesn't grow too fast.

Venerable Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen explains three types of love. "To love when you're unloved, that's heroic."
What makes the Saint is the one who is willing at each and every crisis of his life to make some act of self denial. Then love truly is an ascension. Both the love of man for a woman and the love of a soul for God. --Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen--
