Interests: Kindly note that this blog contains solely my personal opinions. It is not meant to represent the official positions of the Roman Catholic Church, the diocese of Paterson, Corpus Christi Parish, or the Chicago Cubs. All postings on this blog that you find interesting or helpful are clearly my own work. Anything that weakens your faith, raises your blood pressure, or causes you to run out of the room were undoubtedly the work of a heinous hacker! I write this as an exercise in sharing and not confronting.
