Things I saw today ...

- Spiritual Poetry: Jane Hirshfield

- Dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises, a video lecture series from Georgetown University. The first one ...


- the Lilac-breasted Roller, Wikipedia ...


- How the Vatican built a secret property empire using Mussolini's millions ... Sigh - why am I not surprised? :(

- Pride and Prejudice at 200: looking afresh at Austen's classic. When I was a teen I read this, plus Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and other similar gothic romances. God only knows what that's done to my brain ;)

- "True Facts About The Seahorse" ... hee hee ....

Crystal, I did listen to Dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises Lecture Presupposition and Introductory.

The little that I've learned is that we must try to discover what we can find in our lives about GOD and each individual whether him and/or her should try to learn what we can about "IT", God's Eternal Will.

While at "IT" we must try to be humble in GOD's love and nor start believing that we are God in the process so in other words, we must try to be humble in our loving spiritual exercises and not start believe that just because we were made in God's Image and truly believe that, we should be careful not to start thinking that we are GOD and better than others just because we have spiritual followers who truly believe U>S (usual sinners) think we are a god.

Does that make sense? :)

As for
(((- How the Vatican built a secret property empire using Mussolini's millions ... Sigh - why am I not surprised? :( )))

Maybe we should give the Vatican a chance to defend themselves and maybe we could do this by at least asking Jeff and Jimmy Akin to lead U>S (usual sinners) in the right direction.
