You say you want some evolution...

Okay, maybe I'm getting a bit carried away with all these meme generators but hey, it's fun.

When I first saw news this morning about the Pope's comments concerning evolution and the Big Bang theory, I had to laugh.  Again, I find it ironic that living in an age of information, people can be so ignorant.  Do a few Google searches people!!

This is not ground breaking information that the Church believes that evolution and creation can both be true.  St. John Paul II said the same and Pope Pius XII was open to it as well.  In fact, the person who proposed the "Big Bang" theory was a Jesuit Catholic Priest.

I'd love to see more accurate and responsible reporting by journalists as well as better research before spouting off on social media but then I'd have no meme's to create.

Here's a great piece on the craziness!

To say science and theology is almost a truism in Catholic theology. The problem is that today "science" is a philosophically-loaded concept. The pope may within his competence say evolution does not negate Christian Faith, but he cannot say macroevolution IS true. That would be stepping outside his competence. See the new massive study by Stephen Meyer, Darwin's Doubt. Amazon has it.

Catherine's Mobile Stander

I've once again learned to not underestimate this girl.  At school she has been receiving therapy using this stander to help her gain strength and stamina.  We brought it home for the summer and I'm simply blown away.

I'm amazed at how proficient she is at maneuvering such a device.  She is able to roll around corners, through doorways, over carpet and more.  Catherine makes it look easy and she does so with the hand-eye coordination of a professional gamer.



However, what really amazes me is her disposition when she is in this contraption.  There are tons of books and videos addressing the power of posture, the power of physical positioning and it's influence on the mental position and mental health.  
These short (35 minute) sessions that Catherine experiences twice per day confirms the theories.  Each time she is placed in the stander her demeanor changes.  She's happy, smiles more (if that's possible) and is more outgoing.  She wheels around the house greet…

Take Up Your Cross

Thursday after Ash Wednesday

In the First Reading, Moses challenges the people, and us, to "choose life". He says, "choose life, that you and your descendants may live." This seems pretty practical. If we choose life, we and our descendants will go on. If not, well...

However, I think we need to look deeper. In fact, I would encourage you to insert a word here in the scriptures, if only mentally - "choose eternal life." For most of us, choosing life is not much of a choice in the arena of our daily lives. Most of us do not rise in the morning with the thought of I'm going to choose to live this day racing through our brains. Yet choosing eternal life must be an everyday, and in fact every moment, choice. It is an effort to make those choices day after day and minute after minute. In some degree, every choice we make throughout our day is a choice for either eternal life or eternal death - therefore choose life!

So how then do we "choo…
