Why I am Catholic

Julie over at Happy Catholic is always good for a quote. Today, she posted one that I think pretty much sums up the difference between Protestants and Catholics:

I should still say that nothing a pope (or a priest) could do or say would make me wish to leave the Church although I might well wish that they would leave.

- Frank Sheed

It brings to mind another quote:

Community is that place where the person you least want to live with always lives... When that person moves away, someone else arises immediately to take his or her place.

- Peter J. Palmer

Makes you wonder if Satan is searching for a cardigan...

Father Jay observed that today's selection from the Office of Readings is particularly apropos:

The cold north wind blows, and ice freezes on the water; it settles on every pool of water, and the water puts it on like a breastplate.
- Sirach 43:20

Bundle up, folks, and say a special prayer for those who do not have the clothing and shelter to stay warm!
