April 14, 2009

Fr. Stanley Jaki was a friend. He stayed at our home a number of times. When viewing his picture our younger children quickly responded, “Don’t let him come here; he looks mean!” He was the priestly version of Einstein — brain, appearance, white hair askew and all.

Amazing Grace

December 10, 2008

This is a very beautiful production and moving rendition of Amazing Grace. I especially like the bagpipes and the setting — which looks like the Colloseum in Rome. It starts out slow but really gains momento and decibels once these guys get going. Click here and enjoy!

September 29, 2008

Fascinating Chart demonstrating the Intelligent Design of the Universe. Pass this along to anyone who thinks the universe got here by time + chance + matter.
