This week: Scott Hahn’s awesome video on the New Evangelization (and our faith in general). Father Barron addresses extreme secularism as illustrated by a Chicago Sun-Times columnist. A proposed documentary on same sex attraction and genuine Church teaching. An amazing image from hurricane Sandy. Another 90 second creation story. A recent surprise for one military family. Miracle invention – The Popinator (as in “popcorn”, not “pope”).
Scott Hahn speaks here about the New Evangelization, but it is sooooo much more than that! He beautifully presents our faith, covering a lot of ground, in just a few minutes. I was expecting this to be interesting, but it is awesome.
Father Barron is unimpressed with Chicago Sun-Times columnist Neil Steinberger’s uninformed, anti-religious, secular mind. “I think what we ought to do, we religious people, is engage in a kind of non-violent resistance to this very violent, very aggressive move. We should” … “bring religious language very much into the public conversation.”
How do we reach the masses (and for that matter, many Catholics) with genuine Church teaching? Projects like this. I donated (via this link).
Only hurricane Sandy’s outer bands swept over NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, AL. A thin haze of ice crystals in cirrus clouds produced an interesting natural phenomenon:
We will see in it what we will. Some see a mouth receiving the Blessed Sacrament. Thanks to Elizabeth Scalia for spotting it.
Another creation in 90 seconds video:
The sound quality of the following video is horrible. Fortunately, you will not need it…
Your hands are full, but you need a piece of popcorn. How can technology solve this problem?
(Don’t rush out to buy one – they don’t really exist.)
Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
