Thanks to the 40+ visitors to iCafe this evening who ate candy, ate cookies and candied apples, drank hot chocolate, played limbo, played pool, and in general had a most spook-tacular Halloween!

mirth [murth] gaiety or jollity, especially when accompanied by laughter: the excitement and mirth of the holiday season. (Source: dictionary.com)

“And as I close this chaotic volume I open again the strange small book from which all Christianity came; and I am again haunted by a kind of confirmation. The tremendous figure which fills the Gospels towers in this respect, as in every other, above all the thinkers who ever thought themselves tall. His pathos was natural, almost casual. The Stoics, ancient and modern, were proud of concealing their tears. He never concealed His tears; He showed them plainly on His open face at any daily sight, such as the far sight of His native city. Yet He concealed something. Solemn supermen and imperial diplomatists are proud of restraining their anger. He never restrained His anger. He flung furniture down the front steps of the Temple, and asked men how they expected to escape the damnation of Hell. Yet He restrained something. I say it with reverence; there was in that shattering personality a thread that must be called shyness. There was something that He hid from all men when He went up a mountain to pray. There was something that He covered constantly by abrupt silence or impetuous isolation. There was some one thing that was too great for God to show us when He walked upon our earth; and I have sometimes fancied that it was His mirth.”

G.K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy

Rose for Life

Patty Stebick stopped by to let us know that Elk County Right to Life will be passing out Rose for Life lapel roses at all the Masses this weekend. She says we always think of Mary and roses because of her saying yes to be the Mother of God.
