He who places his hope on thee, O Virgin all-glorious, will prosper in all he does.

Ecumenist Tidbits

I'm convinced that, if God has a hand in the unfolding of daily events, He has a sense of humor. Consider the following:

1. A woman told me that her husband is trying to convince her to switch from the Roman Rite to the Unia. She'd like me to answer his questions about "Eastern" stuff.

2. Another RC woman, who's currently teaching a class for prospective First Communicants, asked me to explain transubstantiation to her, which I managed to do without singing Tantum Ergo. She then invited me to be a guest lecturer at her class. Envisioning a lecture entitled, "Broad Path v. Narrow Path", I advised her to ask her padre first. I haven't heard back, thank goodness.
