I should mention the homily I heard this weekend, delivered, as usual, in measured, deliberate, confident tones. He covered: 1) The Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and the Battle of Lepanto 2) The importance of praying the rosary […]

Quick MP news

Revolutionary Road - Is it just me?
Why am I the only person I know..or even "know" in the Internet sense of "knowing"  - who didn't hate it? I didn't love it, either. There was a lot wrong with it. Weak characterization. Miscasting. Anvil-wielding mentally ill prophets.But here's the thing.Whether or not Yates' original novel in
