The Lord be with you!

From the Cat at 684 South Third St….


Well, only one person knew how to pronounce "ghoti."  The answer is fish.  Take the "gh" from enough which makes an "f" sound.  Take the "o" from women which makes an "i" sound.  Take the "ti" from nation which makes a "sh" sound.  And there you have it---fish.  Here's a little fun with abbreviations.  Never abbrev. 


A cat that weighed many an oz.

Used language I cannot pronoz.

By removing a chair

From a lady quite fair

He wanted to see if she'd boz.



Aching but not complaining - all for you!

Taking back marriage for our children and families: Wednesday, July 15th, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Pontifical College Josephinum’s Jessing Center. There is much confusion in today’s culture about the reality of marriage.  We are left wondering: How do we protect our children from adopting distorted concepts of love and marriage?  How do we promote the truth about marriage between man and woman in our society?   William B. May, author of Getting the Marriage Conversation Right, and frequent guest on EWTN and Catholic Radio, will discuss the need for a new Marriage Reality Movement and provide a roadmap for reclaiming the truth about love and marriage.   All are welcome to this free presentation sponsored by St. Gabriel Radio and the Diocesan Marriage & Family Life Office.
