Loving the Bride, vol.25

Something old....

The good devout man first makes inner preparation for the actions he has later to perform. His outward actions do not draw him into lust and vice; rather it is he who bends them into the shape of reason and right judgement. Who has a stiffer battle to fight than the man who is striving to conquer himself.

-----Thomas a Kempis, German mystic & author (1380 - 1471)

Something new...

Lisa over at CatholicMom has made a great recommendation--tune in to "That Catholic Show" a dynamic new podcast! You'll find all the links here courtesy of Lisa's blog!

And just another plug for CatholicMom.com and all it's good stuff, like weekly lesson plans!


Great new product out: A DVD called The Catholic Mass.... Revealed!" Check it out.

Something borrowed....

Fr. Jim over at Dappled Things has a thought-provoking article for any and all who are being confirmed this season, and for all the likes of us who believe that religious education/instruction and sacraments are not akin to getting your passport stamped....

Something blue....

I recently had a vibrant conversation about women in the field of theology (to which I aspire) with Dr. Virginia Kimball, a Mariologist who teaches at both Merrimack and Assumption Colleges here in Massachusetts. Dr. Kimball's latest article on Mary and the birth narrative of Jesus contains probing questions for theologians to ponder. Read it here, over at catholicweb.com.
