God speaks to us in many ways, some conventional and some unconventional. If we are truly seeking His will for our lives, it behooves us to make the effort to hear His voice. While it may require turning off the noise that surrounds us, the reward will be great. We will be able to know His will and experience His peace.- from Faith, Hope & Clarity

From the Cat at 684 S. Third Street:
I am writing this on September 16th.
I took the best nap I have taken in a year. The sun and the window frame created a perfect square and I stretched out to its corners. I spent most of my time meditating on two important things: 1) How to charm Father Droll and 2) How to convince him I have a soul.
I hear there's a Spaghetti Dinner at St. Mary's this weekend. You people don't know how to deal with spaghetti and meatballs. Sometime you will have to come to my house and I'll show you how much fun it is to bat around meatballs--- and spaghetti is like edible yarn. I remember once hearing a mother say to her little child "Don't play with your food", well this reminds me that my mother used to say "Play with your food that's half the fun of eating!"
