A Couple of Additions

Just a reminder about the home shrine, or icon corner article, before it gets buried in the feed. (Sometimes the Bear wonders if he doesn't feed you to much at once!) Be sure to click on the pictures for a much larger image.

The Bear has made three additions to the sidebar. One blog, Linen on the Hedgerow, from Wales, a mutual link. There is also a wonderful find by our Badger: the Institute of Catholic Culture, in the recommended sites. The Bear is listening to a lecture on the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to the Romans even as he writes. Finally, there is Lighthouse Catholic Media, home of the excellent dramatized New Testament and many good lectures by to Catholic speakers. (There is a very small fee for most; a couple of bucks.)

Anything on the sidebar has the Bear's enthusiastic endorsement. These are all excellent resources for you.

Query: why does the Bear not see women at confession? Is this something about his parish? Are women more righteous? Seriously, every Saturday the same thing: a dozen men, and at most, two women. What's up with that?


  1. Thank you Brother Bear, I am enjoying your blog immensely. God bless.

  2. Women confess at my parish. I've never counted (probably will, this weekend), but I think it's about equal numbers of men and women.

    Of course, the Priest is always male (thank God), so there's an unequal number on that side... :-)


Moderation is On.
