In Charge of Fire.jpg

If you are in the greater New Haven, Connecticut area this coming weekend, "In Charge of the Fire" is well worth the effort to see. The writer, actors and director capture the essence of the life of Saint Paul and it reminds us of the salient points of this saint's life and work for Christ. I think this a wonderful contribution to the celebrations happening in the Year of Saint Paul.

The Pope and the Circus

Circus & the pope.jpgIt's not every day that the Pope meets with the circus, unless you mean meeting with a long line of clergy and laity on any given subject wanting the pope's permission, insight or blessing. Nonetheless, it is fun to see the Holy Father having a light moment in his schedule. The Medrano Circus came to the General Audience today.

The yeast in the pizza dough is dead. Ave Maria.jpgThe faculty of Ave Maria University (Naples, FL) found out that the financial situation is rather dire and the school could close within 18 months. The once interesting idea is about to go belly up. AND "I am sorry isn't going to cut it." One wonders if this seemingly weird idea was based on good, holy discernment focused on Christ, or not. Could the money and intellectual capacities of so many of the good faculty members could have been used more effectively in established universities??? Tom Monaghan wanted to die poor and he's pretty close to it now. The business acumen of the Domino's Pizza founder seems to have run out. Ave Maria Law School is selling naming rights for its buildings.
