Why St. Philomena Should Be Co-Patroness of the USA Under the Immaculate Conception

americaonenationundergod

america

Reason 1:  Our Flag. 

Reason 2: My Dreams. 

Reason 3:  She is the Patroness of Chastity and chastity is probably the virtue most under attack in our country right now.

Reason 4:  She is the Patroness of Youth. We live in a youth-centered culture and the future depends on who wins the hearts of the next generation, good or evil. See also “Our Lady of America” by Sister Mildred Mary Neuzil p. 24-25.

Reason 5: She has served, throughout the history of the Church, as Mary’s antidote to Liberalism.

Three Reasons I Will Not Be Seeing The Doctor Strange Movie

st michael

In November of this year Marvel will be releasing another movie, this one about the “Sorcerer Supreme” Doctor Strange. Marvel created Doctor Strange in 1963 to be one of their comic book heroes.

Many, many, people (myself included) are HUGE fans of Marvel and the near infinite number of epic heroes they have produced: the Avengers, Daredevil, the Fantastic Four, Spider-Man…. Marvel‘s masterminded genius has succeeded in creating a whole fantastical universe that people have been happily losing themselves  in for more than 65 years now. Catholics like myself have even been spiritually uplifted by the Christ-like  virtue and self-sacrifice exhibited in many of Marvel’s heroes that remind us of the beautiful calling of the Scriptures: “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” “learn to do good. Make justice your aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow.”…

Discerned Out

Hey guys!  Just a brief post to let you know that I’ve discerned out.  The community and I weren’t as good a match as I at first thought and my soul’s charisms have been changing a lot in recent years (I guess that’s just part of growing up.) so I finally concluded that I am not, after all, called to a monastic Order.  I have not yet given up on Religious Life, but I’m going to just enjoy being a lay person for now and try not to rush into anything.  Thank you for your prayers!

oh yeah

Eat Local Northwest

One of the few fringe benefits of keeping a food blog is that friends assume you’d like some of the plums and pears ripening on their trees. That would be a yes. These particular trees are mossy, knobby quadragenarians with plums so perfectly ripe they have an aura. That’s why I’m embarrassed to admit what an amateur operation we ran. The technique was to shake the tree, duck as the fruit pelted down, and gather up the unscathed ones. There were enough for a few big sacks; next time we’ll be prepared with a picker, or at least helmets. There’s plenty for fresh eating and plenty for giving away and as we speak I’m trying to figure out how to use the rest.

If you’re in Seattle and can’t use everything from your overloaded fruit tree, give Lettuce Link a call at 206.633.0224. They’ll gladly pick your tree for the…
