Non Abbiate Paura

Enjoy this brief clip from an incredible musical:

The scene is from the wedding feast at Cana. The performance is produced by Comunita Cenacolo. Dare I say this is “rehab at its finest.”

Books and Old TV

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fr. John Larson @ 6:48 pm

I’ve dealt somewhat with lots of old books we have at one of our houses, and there certainly are some gems. One of my favorites is Servant of God Fulton J. Sheen’s Preface to Religion, which deals with basic themes from a Thomistic standpoint. This is a great way to learn some basic Thomistic theological principles, although Archbishop Sheen doesn’t exactly say that this is what he is teaching.

The last part on faith, hope, and charity is a very clear but simple explanation of the theological virtues.

Meanwhile, I’ve been watching an old public domain TV show thanks to some free downloads of it. The show is called “Men Into Space.” It’s a late 1950’s presentation of space travel of the near future, and it was somewhat accurate on what would happen just 10 years later. It’s a curious example of science fiction that tries to look into the near future.

Life on Earth

Filed under: Uncategorized — Fr. John Larson @ 3:32 am

I’m currently dealing with a lot of books — the accumulation of almost 100 years. It’s a lot to deal with.
