Additions - Including Change of Pace

Well I think it would be a good idea for me and for this blog if I posted more than once a day... or aimed to at least. That way I would almost be sure to post each day and no one would get bored or impatient (though patience is a virtue. This makes post number 4 today so don't forget to check out the other three...

Also... I am adding two things to my sidebar.

The first thing is a new blog. It is called Ancilla Domini. It's put together by a 19 year old young woman named Angela. She will be entering the convent within the next couple of years -- which is awesome though I know many will miss her presence on the outside! Anyway... check it out!

The other is a link to a feature provided by remnantband.com and it's called "Back in the Day". Matt Gill posts interesting facts about milestones in the history of the world almost every day. I figure since he is making the effort to provide us with this I could help him out by publicizing it. Here is today's "Back in the Day":

130 years ago on this date in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell is granted a patent for an invention he calls the telephone.With the invention of the telephone and in modern society the cellular phone, people can communicate with anyone, anywhere, anytime.Servant of God John Paul the Great spoke to the youth of America in Saint Louis on January 26, 1999 and reminded the youth that "in an age of instant communications" the most important and sometimes forgotten form of communication is pray.In a busy society in which we are all connected, we have to ask ourselves how connected we are to God.In a busy society when we talk to several people on a daily basis, we have to ask ourselves do I talk time to talk to God.

"You are children of the light (John 12:36)! You belong to Christ, and he has called you by name. Your first responsibility is to get to know as much as you can about him, in your parishes, in religious instruction in your high schools and colleges, in your youth groups and Newman Centers.

But you will get to know him truly and personally only through prayer. What is needed is that you talk to him, and listen to him.

Today we are living in an age of instant communications. But do you realize what a unique form of communication prayer is? Prayer enables us to meet God at the most profound level of our being. It connects us directly to God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, in a constant exchange of love.

Through prayer you will learn to become the light of the world, because in prayer you become one with the source of our true light, Jesus himself."

So don't forget to check it out! Until next time... God bless you and Mary protect you!
