Quote Share:

"The first thing that must strike a non-Christian about a Christian's faith is that it is all too daring. It is too beautiful to be true: The mystery of being, unveiled as absolute love, coming down to wash the feet and the souls of its creatures; a love that assumes the whole burden of our guilt and hate, that accepts the accusations that shower down.. all the scorn and contempt that nails down his incomprehensible movement of self-abasement -- all this absolute love accepts in order to excuse his creature before himself......"
(Hans Urs von Balthasar)

Sorry for being offline a bit :)

I had many deaths and sicknesses to deal with and have been more "inactive" online.

I have been unable to get to email or blogs, some Twitter but not much.

I am trying now to get back online...I am recovering from double lung bronchitis and my 6 year old had 2 weeks of walking pneumonia with high fevers (got to 106.2 even! yikes).

However, it is the end of year business, so I may be spotty for a tad bit but should be good back in 2012...God Willing, right?!

I hope you are all doing well.  Thanks for subscribing and commenting and recommending my blog!

Also--you can find me on twitter at "1RomanCatholic" and on FB at:

Happy Advent and especially, today, Happy Feast of the Immaculate Conception! :)

(via FrCassian Sama)
The feast of the Immaculate Conception reminds us that if God in His mercy and goodness towards mankind can make His Mother Mary immaculate in her being from the time she was conceived, it is also possible that, though our hearts have been tainted by sin, it can be made immaculate again and again through the blood of the seed (Jesus) of Mary. Thanks to Mama Mary for this possibility--Fr.CS,OP
