This Is How We Play Fetch at Zoar


Beau is all grown up already. He has adopted Teddy Roosevelt's adage to "walk softly, but carry a big stick."

The flock has been spending time in the barn under heat lamps. The shepherdess went out to find a sweet scene: Deuce, and his mommy Holly, cuddled up together with the daddy, Billy.

We made snow ice cream yesterday. Simple and delicious.

We're making a good Lent, if external practices matter, but the interior so often lags behind. The Bear has been listening to an audiobook of Dr. Ralph Martin's Fulfillment of All Desire. This book synthesizes the teachings of a number of doctors of the Church on spiritual growth. It gets the Bear's highest recommendation. (Dr. Martin also wrote Will Many Be Saved? a rebuttal to the near-universalism popular today among establishment Catholics like Fr. Robert Barron.)

The Bear trusts you are having a rewarding Lent, too.

  1. That is a BIG stick indeed! How is Beau doing with the goats?

    Lent is bringing lovely but challenging music for the choir (Gibbons' Hosanna to the Son of David especially).

  2. Our little guy is as ambitious, but his small stature is just not up to the task!

  3. That's a mighty big stick, pardner.

    Lionel:

    Ralph Martin and Fr.Robert Barron use the irrational premise in the interpretation of Vatican Council II.

    Vatican Council II (premise-free) agrees with the SSPX position on an ecumenism of return and non Christians needing to convert for salvation

    Fr.Robert Barron in Catholicism uses an irrational proposition to reach an irrational conclusion
