At dealership awaiting an "oil consumption test" on the tank we drive. TV in waiting room is on. Amazon was using the "Ave Maria" as soundtrack for one-day free delivery commercial for Amazon Prime.

I just went online during some downtime at work only to discover that I'm locked out of my FB for suspicious activity. In using the FB Android app to recover my account I decided to uninstall FB. Can't seem to do that. I can disable it, or uninstall Android updates to FB, but there seems to be no way to trash the app. Same for FB Messenger. This is creepy.

Christus vincit! Christus regnat! Christus imperat!

"We are Catholics,.... We don't embrace other cultures, we baptize them."
-Pope Martok, Bajoran Post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation "You Are Cordially Invited..." (2374)

I know he didn't die today (saints feast days typically are the date of death) but when Pope St. John Paul II died in 2005, I had to take a break from watching the EWTN continuous coverage and run off to Confession. I stopped off along the way back home for a couple of errands and found out he died while I was gone. I asked at what time and my Mom said at 2:39 (Eastern US). I missed it by 20i or so minutes. I mentally backtracked where I was during that time, and I am convinced I was receiving absolution at nearly the same time he was undergoing his Particular Judgment. Kewl. So that's *my* personal connection to a great Pope and great saint. :-)

Get me off this planet now. And the stupider just keeps on stupiding. Because numbers oppress and maths is racist.

The iPieta app now has "The Liturgical Year" by Dom Gueranger. It is an epic multivolume series of books exploring the title subject. St. Louis Martin read from it nightly to his daughters, all of whom became religious sisters and one a saint. The books also form the core of the notes before every Sunday and liturgical season in the St. Andrew Daily Missal. These notes are doctrinal, historical and liturgical and are eye opening in their revelation of Church history.

"The saint is the person who is so fascinated by the beauty of God and by his perfect truth as to be progressively transformed by it. Because of this beauty and truth, he is ready to renounce every thing, even himself. Love of God is enough for him, experienced in humble service to one's neighbor, especially towards those who cannot give back in return,"
Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Quote: "...numerous Catholic experts told CNA that a robot priest would be sacramentally impossible in the Catholic Church, explicitly because they are not humans."

Well, that was quick. As soon as I downloaded the Twitter app to my phone, I uninstalled it. The Bisrdsite seems busier and noisier (and thus ANNOYING) on the phone than it does on desktop.

Yeah, baby, it worked! Now I can perhaps become a lean, mean blogging machine! 😜 🤣

Nice going, BlueHost. Your website is only working completely in Firefox; in Safari all I can access is the Domain Manager, all else hangs.
