Céad Míle Fáilte ~ A Hundred Thousand Welcomes!

Here we seek a rest in the shade, some cool water and a little kindness. This blog is dedicated to peace, truth, justice and a post- industrial, post-petroleum illumined world in spite of all odds against it. I very much like the line about the ancient knight (see poem below) "His helmet now shall make a hive for bees" It is reminiscent of "beating swords into ploughshares" a sentiment I heartily approve of. Thank you for visiting ~ I hope you return!

Time To Vote For Summer Reading List!

I just took a moment to pop on over to Amy Welborn's site, Charlotte Was Both ~ and found a link to Aquinas And More Books and their Catholic Summer Reading List, which they're asking readers to vote on your favorite three three top contenders.

Here are all 64 of the books in the running, although it's down to the final ten now.
I voted for Pope Benedict's book, Chesterton on St. Francis and Mike Aquilina's litle book on family life.

QUOTE There is literally “something for everyone” in the title offerings - both fiction and non-fiction and books for young readers. Last year we were featured on EWTN/Ave Maria Radio and the program was mentioned in a number of Catholic publications. The purpose of the program is to keep Catholics reading and engaged with their faith during the summer vacation season and to expose them to new titles and to the Catholic novel - something that is becoming a rare and exotic species.
The program will feature downloadable discussion guides for reading groups, flyers that Catholic retailers across the country can download and use in their stores so they can sponsor reading groups in their local markets, and much more. We are also encouraging parishes around the country to start up summer reading groups. UNQUOTE
