Monday Musings

A few random thoughts and ponderings to begin the week...

Just a reminder that Lent begins this week. Two more weeks to decide how to commemorate this season of penance and sacrifice.

Here is something I don't understand: As a faithful Catholic, Rick Santorum is mocked and openly attacked for his religious beliefs. But if you try to bring up Rev. Wright and the church that Obama belonged to for twenty years in Chicago... 'Well, that's just not fair! How dare you question his religious affiliation.'

We should go back and listen to a Rev. Wright sermon and compare it to something from Pope John Paul II or Benedict XVI - Then let's see whose religious beliefs are more radical.

Just caught a couple of blogs that might be interesting to readers of this blog.. one for the guys and one for the ladies:
Two Catholic Men and a Blog - "Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth.  Today we need to work for a reconciliation between faith and reason." [quoting Blessed John Paul II]

Catholic Mom's Connect - "...a ministry to encourage women to celebrate Faith-filled friendships and to support each other in our God-given role as Catholic mothers."


  1. Here’s another thing. Rick Santorum is 100% pro-life and is called “extreme”. Obama is 100% pro-choice, but never called “extreme”. Looking at the logic of a spectrum, if one is extreme the other must also be called extreme.
