Lord, we seek Thy intervention for...

So on one hand...

... we have one lady trying to get rid of her child ...

... and on the other ...

... we have another lady trying to cut one out of another womans womb.

If there is a child that you don't want or can't feed or educate, give that child to me. I will not refuse any child. I will give a home, or find loving parents for him or for her. - Mother Theresa of Calcutta

There is something to be said for...

... putting your keys where your children can't get to them.

While no charges are going to be filed against the mother, one can only wonder why she wasn't aware of the fact that her child was no longer in her house, this should really give her pause to consider tightening up the house a bit to ensure that her 4 year old doesn't wander off anymore.

For anyone interested in the Catholic faith...

... may I suggest a copy of Radio Replies.

I know what Mn stands for...

Probably because I have to use it in my experiments.

Requiescat In Pace

Though I never knew Gerard Serafin personally, I always enjoyed his weblog A Catholic Blog For Lovers. I had been awol from St. Blogs for awhile, and I just heard of passing in November.

In blessed repose grant eternal rest, O Lord, to Your departed servant Gerard; and render eternal his memory. Amen


I usually don't get personal in my blog. Typically, there is no reason to do so. However, I guess after almost a year away from this blog, I'm allowed to change the direction it had previously traveled and re-aim even if only for a moment.

I'm miffed. Drama. I hate it. No need for it, not really. Life can be stressful enough, as people try to make ends meat, and after a long, hard day, try to graba bit of respite. Therefore, they don't need to be slapped with a guilt trip.

You know, I considered this person a "friend". We had debated side by side over at Christian Forums a number of times, in an old forum called "Interdenominational Debate & Discussion" which was more debate than discussion. About 90/10 split between the two actually. At any rate, he was Orthodox, I'm Catholic. After "IDD" was closed, he started spending more time at an Orthodox board and we lost contact. Eventually, I had inquired into how he was doing, only to learn that he was considering becoming Catholic.


I knew, as orthodox as this person was, his entrance into the Catholic Church would result in an enrichment of not only him, but the people he would interact with. He was an excellent apologist, and a great person.

I suppose it's bound to happen from time to time, but this person had a hang up on some Catholic teaching. Mainly ecumenism. Unfortunately, like Archbishop Sheen said, what he was railing against wasn't really what the Catholic Church was teaching. I tried to point this out, only to be ignored.

I guess it's my fault in asking him if he wanted his cake and the right to eat it, but he took my post as his "coming out party" to claim that he was reverting to the Orthodox Church. Along with quoting my comments, and his "re-conversion to Orthodoxy story" in the Orthodox forum.

Well brother, I hope it makes you happy, but it was a pretty cheap shot. If you want to go, you go, no one can stop you... but don't use someone else as a scapegoat. It's low.

A Crack of the Whip

I've been told to get "back to work". So here we go.

This post serves as notice that:
1. My contact info has been changed to use my Google (Gmail) account.
2. NihilObstat blog can consider me alive once again.
3. To tell everyone to read the following link... completely...

It Was Horrible! Horrible!
