Important message about the blog

It comes to my attention that some think this site frivolous. Of course anyone with his head screwed on straight knows the truth of the matter. But now does seem a good time to review the basic texts with which all should be familiar before attempting to peruse, or presuming to understand, my posts.

The Summa Theologica, by St. Thomas Aquinas
The Code of Canon Law
The Special and General Theory of Relativity, by Albert Einstein
The Code of Hammurabi
The Complete Works of Aristotle
The Domesday Book

Other works to be listed as they occur to me.

Meanwhile: pedicured toenails! Ooooo, pretty!

hmmmmm are you selling copies of the Domesday Book by chance. I hope so. The other requirements seem pretty basic.... I thought this was an intellectual site...I mean who doesn't know this stuff?

Wow butterflies! Me likey!

Right on.

80% of my blog is frivolous.

The other 20% is more serious than death. And not death by chocolate.

I have heard of at least one parish holding a Dies Irae service held Holy Thursday night to honor Our Lord's betrayal. Have you ever heard of such a service and where I could find a rubrics?

Hi Father,
That's interesting; I never heard of such a service! I don't know where to find rubrics, but it might be worth asking Fr. Z at .
