How Lovely are Your Dwelling Places


84 How lovely are Your dwelling places,

O Lord of hosts!

My soul longed and even yearned for the courts of the Lord;

My heart and my flesh sing for joy to the living God.

The bird also has found a house,

And the swallow a nest for herself, where she may lay her young,

Even Your altars, O Lord of hosts,

My King and my God.

How blessed are those who dwell in Your house!

They are ever praising You. 



In the Face of a Fragile World

Boy, a lot has certainly changed in our lives and rather quickly too. It’s all too much at some moments to really fathom the effects the virus has had on the entire world. Sports! Sports are gone. I never would have seen that one coming. Taking sports as an example, it is always the guaranteed entertainment that would be around. Perhaps here and there a rain delay occurred or a game is postponed, but the entire sporting enterprise is cancelled. Unreal.


Deacon Cook What?


Missing meat on Fridays? That classic Catholic crisis when we realize it is meal time and it is Friday and it is during Lent…"Oh shoot, that is right it is Lent…ugh". Classic. Friday meals can be creative and strangely more delicious than maybe we first thought. One of my favorite recipes to cook during Lent is close to something like a burger. It is not a tofu burger, or what not. It is very filling. Try making Quinoa patties. I highly recommend them.
