There ain’t one.

But…but… Breitbart said one was planned! And I hate Muslims, and anything Islam related! So , since I read about it on the internet, IT MUST BE TRUE!

Yeah, well, sorry to disappoint you.

That said, you can still pick up some nice lingerie for your sweetie, in a wide array of colors. Probably even in Mecca.

Have a nice day.

Webster, looking dapper in the cold of winter.
Webster, looking dapper in the cold of winter.

Webster Bull, my friend, and former blogging partner, has written a memoir about the long, strange, trip that brought him into the Catholic Church. Jesus knows his sheep, even if we have no idea how to respond to His call. And sometimes in the seeking of Him, we get shanghaied unwittingly, and turned away from our true desire.

Webster has made the story of his journey available for all to read over at his blog, Witness To Christ.

After reading my conversion memoir, The Long Walk Home, a priest friend told me, “You, Webster, are the last man who should have ended on the doorstep of the Catholic Church in the first decade of the twenty-first century.” (more…)

I love Blaise Pascal. I’ve said that before a number of times. The guy accomplished more in the thirty-nine short years of his life than I ever will, and I look forward to sharing a beer with him in Heaven. And if he doesn’t like beer, I’ll share a glass of wine with him instead.
