Christus Dominus section 13 continues the chapter discussed in the past two CD posts. Bishops must be able to teach “in a manner adapted to the needs of the times, that is to say, in a manner that will respond … Continue reading
I’ve also been updating the sidebar over there. Check out a few of those sites listed. One new blog is author Chet Raymo’s Science Musings. I’ve dropped in there from time to time, but the past few weeks I’ve been … Continue reading
As opposed to the real thing, you can also check out this web site to get views of solar system moons and planets from dozens of vantage points at any given time over a period of decades. This is how … Continue reading
Okay. That worked for web photos. Let’s try my hard drive. Don’t ask me the web site where you can go and click off the states or countries you’ve visited and they give you a map of your travels. The … Continue reading

It’s my diocese. Parishioners have complained to me about it. (Why exactly, I’m not sure.) And St Blog’s has taken up the theme on a handful of sites. Three times a charm. Our new bishop has deep-sixed Richard McBrien’s syndicated … Continue reading
As surface temperatures soar to near 100 in KC, Brittany and I have foregone any earthbound activity the past few days in favor of an old favorite, Solarquest. Proving adept in other capitalist endeavors earlier this summer, Life and Monopoly, … Continue reading
Finished the latest Harry Potter book a few days ago, and now that it’s sinking in, I thought it was time for a review. I wanted to like the book: that’s an upfront bias. I enjoyed the book as much … Continue reading
