Memorial Day

May 30, 2005

Please remember in your prayers today all those who gave their life for their country. You might want check out Catholic Mil for some reflections.

Ghost Whisperer

May 20, 2005

Ghost Wisperer is going to replace Joan of Arcadia. Evidently it is a show about a girl who talks to people(ghosts) that other people can’t see. Now there is an original idea. It is down right offensive to me that some people are so blatant in their attempts to steal someone else’s idea. Or how about the title? The first thing I thought of is Robert Redford. They can’t even come up with a decent title for the show. Joan of Arcadia was a very clever title for a show. The idea was novel and new and I think the reason people loved it so much was the writing tended to be fresh and creative.

I think the writing on this new show is going to be as creative and fresh as the idea for the show and the name. In otherwords…. we have one more hour a week to read or do something else.

Joan of Arcadia cancelled

May 18, 2005

It is funny that the replaced Joan of Arcadia with a girl who talks to dead people. I hate to be a consiracy theorist but it sure looks like this is either reprisal against the Hall’s or more likely it is an attempt to get God off of primetime. Too much truth for main stream media.

Joan of Arcadia

May 18, 2005

Well the sad news is the program was cancelled. I am wondering if it is at all possible that it could appar on another network. I hope so. If not it is one less TV show I watch and it will not be replaced.

Judging Amy is gone as well. That is less of a blow. I still kept tabs on it but was unhappy with the way they treated Mrs. Hall last year. I think they are reaping what they sowed there.

Happy Birthday to me

May 14, 2005

What a day. I woke up 36 and felt it at the end. I left St. Mary’s seminary in Houston this morning saying goodbye to my spiritual director from when I was in seminary. It is always hard to leave him. It was a good retreat.

I spent about 9 hours getting from the seminary to Sioux Falls and then another 4 getting back to the rectory. It has been a long day and I am tired.

I have always liked the fact that my birthday falls on the feast day of Our Lady of Fatima. I asked her for a special request today. I am hoping she will obtain a favor for me for a friend. I would appreciate it if you would add your prayers to mine for my friend.

Off to bed… homily to write tomorrow and the last day of my Novena to the Holy Spirit.
