Back when I was toying around with the idea of actually trying to be a Christian, I personally got a nice kick in the rear from reading Blaise Pascal’s thought #224 on the Eucharist,

How I hate these follies of not believing in the Eucharist, etc.! If the Gospel be true, if Jesus Christ be God, what difficulty is there?

At the time, see, I didn’t even know what the Eucharist was.

These thoughts, though (in one big whopper of a paragraph), from a letter to a Mademoiselle De Roannez, clarify all of that, and are quite fitting for the Feast of Corpus Christi.

Take a look. [Read more…]

Washington, D.C. – Moments ago, for the sixth time in a row, the Supreme Court took steps to protect another religious objector from the contraceptive mandate. It ordered a lower court to reconsider its ruling that denied a group of Catholic ministries in Michigan the freedom to follow their faith. [Read more…]

Pass? Or Fail? The Yokohama YK580 In The Snow (A Tire Review Update)

This ain't no motorbike! ;)

This ain’t no motorbike! ;)

Back in November I shared my opinion on the Yokohama YK580 tires. I was pretty rough on them in that review because I expect a lot out of my tires, and I was underwhelmed by their performance in wet weather.

So let me tell you how they do in light snow and ice. [Read more…]

Songs About Jesus That I’ve Never Heard (Music for Mondays)

"Jesus Christ and the rich young man," Heinrich Hoffman.

“Jesus Christ and the rich young man,” Heinrich Hoffman.

 

Self-reflective question o’ the day: How much music have I never heard?

Answer: A number that is very large, and pretty close to being represented by this symbol:  ∞.

So I’m probably in the same boat as you are, right? So I did a little exploring, looking for songs that I haven’t heard but that I just might like. That is a number considerably smaller than infinity.

The legend speaks his mind (and mine)…

Candle flame by Jon Sullivan

Before I became a Catholic, I had no idea what Advent meant. It was just another one of those weird, mysterious, Catholic words for a time in the year before Christmas. Nowadays, I appreciate it more because I understand that it commemorates the time when the people of Israel yearned for the Messiah. [Read more…]
