All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

It's been a while

Haven't had a chance to post much in recent months, not for lack of material. But what prompts me back to this keyboard is the sad case of Fr. John Corapi. Like so many who are familiar with his work and his teaching, I was inclined to disbelieve the accusations against him, to dismiss them as the rantings of some one who endured a real or imagined slight at the hands of the Church and was now looking for payback. It is still what I would like to believe but a committee appointed by his order has come to some damning conclusions. You can read about them here.
For Father Corapi's comments on the accusations you can check out his blog here.
More tomorrow.
