  •  Quote of the Day

    Timothy HJ Nerozzi 庭夢@TimothyNerozzi (,2023) Novus Ordo is valid. TLM is valid. Neither is inherently better or more valid than the other. They should both be available, respected, and treated with reverence. Outside of that, your preference is up to you. Nothing will get better until everyone accepts this.

    Mark Shea on FB (March 8, 2023) To get a dispensation to eat meat on St. Patrick’s Day and then to waste it on corned beef is a shocking crime against common decency. BLTs all round!

Peter T Chattaway@ptchat (March 9, 2023) RIP Topol (1935-2023), the star of my favorite musical of all time (1971’s Fiddler on the Roof), the first James Bond movie I ever saw (1981’s For Your Eyes Only), and 1979’s The New Media Bible: Book of Genesis (he played Abraham).

✨natalie✨@nataliepucillo (March 9, 2023)  Absolutely stunning offering from Minneapolis St Paul for survivors of abuse who crave the Eucharist but are held back by liturgy-adjacent trauma

  •  Quote of the Day

    Pope Francis@Pontifex (Mar 9, 2023)  Almsgiving, practised far from the spotlight, gives peace and hope to the heart. It reveals to us the beauty of giving, which then becomes receiving, and thus enables us to discover a precious secret: our hearts find more joy in giving than in receiving (Acts 20:35). #Lent

    Beginnings

    Emily Katherine@EmilyKath319 (March 10, 2023) The best part of being newly postpartum is getting “trapped” under a sleeping baby.
    Oh no I can’t do the dishes because the baby is asleep and won’t transfer
    Guess I’ll just have to stay here and cuddle this cute little squish cuz I can’t do anything else
    Oh nooooooo

    Endings

    Steve Skojec@SteveSkojec (March 10,2023) Went to a funeral today for one of my best friends’ grandmother. She was 101, and from just 3 children, she had 109 great grandchildren. Something like 70 family members were with her as she was dying.

    That’s one hell of a legacy.

     

     

    Movies That Opened

    65

    DangerVille@DangervilleTeam (Mar 10, 2023) I actually had fun with 65. It’s a fairly straightforward film with some great action, tension and emotional moments. Most the dinosaurs are actually fine design wise, although there is one abomination I never want to lay eyes on again. Its the definition of decent, a solid 7/10.

    Scream VI

    Champions PG-13
    Involves a stubborn minor league basketball coach who is forced to coach a Special Olympics team when he is sentenced to community service.

    Patrick Neve@catholicpat (March 11, 2023)
    Even though Twitter is newer, books are more advanced. A book is two adults having a conversation. Twitter is two cavemen hitting each other with sticks.

Day 71: The Source of the Law — The Bible in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz) – YouTube
 Day 71: Mary’s Virginity — The Catechism in a Year (with Fr. Mike Schmitz) – YouTube

Father Vu@VudatNation (March 12, 2023) Friends how was your Sunday? I pray that you & your family (loved ones) were able to attend the holy sacrifice of the Mass today or last night. Lent is a season of conversion. No matter what we have done or failed to do—our Lord is always there to wait for us. Let’s return to Him

Adam Lin Cooper@AdamLinCooper1 (March 12, 2023)  “President Trump was wrong. I had no right to overturn the election and his reckless words endangered my family and everyone at the Capitol that day, and I know that history will hold Donald Trump accountable.” —Mike Pence, 3/11/23

 Quote of the Day

Patrick Neve@catholicpat (March 12, 2023) Voting as a Catholic is a weird experience. “Hm. Do I want to be shot in the left foot or the right foot?”

Jolz �@Jolz_Aust (March 12, 2023) Today, during the homily, the priest mentioned that Jesus didn’t expect the Samaritan woman to decide on the spot whether or not she wanted to follow him. He gave her space to think about it. This hit close to my heart. I’ve been asking God to allow me space over the past month.

Ryan Grant: Radical Tobacco Curator �@chesterbelloc3 (March 12, 2023) At 1:15 pm today, my wife, Sarah Grant, went to her eternal reward. After receiving Extreme Unction and the Apostolic Pardon from Fr. Terra, FSSP, we prayed a divine mercy chaplet. When it ended, she breathed her last. Please keep my family in your prayers.

OSCARS 2023

A lot of people love to hate on the Oscars and brag about how it sucks and their not going to watch it. I love movies and like to see who is nominated, who won and I don’t have cable and so for the first time in years I actually watched it as I signed up for Live Streaming. Free Trial. I then canceled my subscription as I only watch streaming channels and maybe DVD’s from the library. I think the Oscars is a good opportunity to talk about movies and cultures, story telling and an opportunity for applying catechetical lessons from certain nominated films. Films in Red are what I’ve seen.

Andrew Petiprin@AndrewPetiprin: (March 12, 2023)
My wife thinks this #Oscars is going so smoothly because a chatbot wrote it.

5 A short about a girl who tries  very hard to lose her virginity and always searches for “the one”.  Because this is a Catholic blog I don’t think the title of the short is appropriate to even mention. I got through about 10 minutes of the 30 minute animated short.
