A Bit Anachronistic

Since I've just added "The Wedding At Cana" by Paolo Veronese to my Rosary Pictures collection, I thought I'd share an appropriate post from one of my old blogs.

I've seen more than one meditation on the 2nd Luminous Mystery (The Wedding at Cana) where we are told to think of a Jewish wedding, the music, the dancing. Well, that makes my meditation on that Mystery a bit anachronistic. When I think of a Jewish wedding, the music, the dancing, I think "Hava Nagila"!

Gotta Conserve Energy!

This is Saturday, and on Saturday I usually do my laundry.
Not this week, though! We are having a heat wave, and that means more air conditioners and fans are being used all over Brooklyn. So THAT means we are being asked NOT to use washers, dryers, and so on.
Several neighborhoods have had power outages, and I sure don't want that. No power would mean no radio, no coffee, no computer, and, worst of all, no TV!
Why do I say, "Worst of all, no TV"???
Well, no TV would mean no EWTN!
