Last night the network went down in the friary where I live. So this morning I walked over to our other house to read my email and blog a bit.

It's just seems easier this time of year to relax the heart and think straight.

Hi there! I came across your blog from Cardinal Sean's blog, and I was wondering if you would mind if I link you to my own? I am very happy to see a strong Catholic presence emerging in various forms of media, and I would love to be able to connect more people with your insights. I will not link unless you say it's okay, and if not, I perfecly understand. Peace!

Thanks for the interest, Michael, and peace and every good thing for your vocation.

I'm happy to trade links; I'm having some network troubles right now, so it might take me a few days.

But I will humbly pray for you and wish you peace and simplicity during this, my time of

Thanks! I saw that I had a ton of visits to my site today coming from your site, and I couldn't imagine why. Then I saw the plug, and it made me laugh. Thank for that. Through it all, let's hope that our Lord is glorified! Peace, friend.
