Veritatis Splendor

"Keep your eyes fixed upon Jesus, who inspires and perfects our faith" --Hebrews 12:2


Pope Benedict XVI before our Lord

And only where God is seen does life truly begin. Only when we meet the living God in Christ do we know what life is. We are not some casual and meaningless product of evolution.
Each of us is the result of a thought of God.
Each of us is willed,
each of us is loved,
each of us is necessary.
There is nothing more beautiful than to be surprised by the Gospel, by the encounter with Christ. There is nothing more beautiful than to know Him and to speak to others of our friendship with Him.
~Pope Benedict XVI, Homily April 24th, 2005

The Media Has Noticed the Growth of Perpetual Adoration!

Our local Twin Cities CBS station, WCCO, has just released a great report on the dramatic increase in the number of Perpetual Adoration chapels in the Twin Cities area over the past decade! The report is very well done, considering the secular source, and talks to all the right people (wow!) -- although I think it is mildly amusing to read it, as there is a very clear "bemused" tone to it, as if the author/correspondant just doesn't quite understand what all the commotion is about... I just want to tell them, "It's ok if you don't get it, we don't quite get it either; it is a mystery and not all mysteries are meant to be solved!" :)

UPDATE -- This coverage appears to be connected with a large article in the Minneapolis paper today! Sweet! Check out the full article at http://www.startribune.com/stories/462/5211613.html (You might need to register with the Star Tribune to see the whole thing... obnoxious of them, but it's worth it... they have been covering a lot of Catholic-related stories lately.)
