There are not posts yet, but Joe is working on it - - - - but the format is similar... same links and sidebar information, plus a few extras.
It is still under construction, but mostly done.
See you over there! Now I just have to work on linking my years of posts from this blog to the new one. Don't want to waste all that information.
Does anyone know how to do that?

More on...the FEAST of Our Lady of Victory (the Rosary)
Many complain that the Mass and Rosary are repetitious. However, the “repetition” of the Mass and Rosary alike can work a slow but deep transformation of one's heart. One could also point out that repetition is not necessarily a sign of a lack of imagination. It may be sheer exuberant pleasure that makes us repeat an activity. G. K. Chesterton argued that repetition is a characteristic of the vitality of children. They like the same stories, the same words, time and time again, not because they are bored and unimaginative but because they delight in life.

I still receive daily Eucharistic emails, and this was the email on the Feast of St. Francis.
- Lord, make me an instrument of your peace;
- where there is hatred, let me sow love;
- where there is injury, pardon;
- where there is doubt, faith;
- where there is despair, hope;
- where there is darkness, light;
- and where there is sadness, joy.
- O Divine Master,
- grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console;
- to be understood, as to understand;
- to be loved, as to love;
- for it is in giving that we receive,
- it is in pardoning that we are pardoned,
- and it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.

Therese experienced extraordinary breakthroughs in what is possible in a human being's relationship with God and with other humans. Since her death, she has fascinated countless people. Her memoir, "Story of a Soul," became the religious bestseller of the 20th century. Countless miracles have been attributed to her intercession. She was canonized in 1925 and, in 1997, named a Doctor of the Church. She is often called the "Little Flower.""My mission: to make God loved, will begin after my death. I will spend my heaven doing good on earth. I will send a shower of roses."
"Jesus, help me to simplify my life by learning what you want me to be - and becoming that person."
"Let us see life as it really is... It is a moment between two eternities..."
"To Call God my Father and to Know myself His Child, that is Heaven to me ..."
St. Therese, pray for us, that we may be
simple, humble, and love Christ with a child-like faith.
