The other day, I said the following concerning the passing of Chief Justice Rehnquist: "A Catholic funeral Mass will be at St Matthew's Cathedral (for once a high-profile Catholic deserves one)..." In fact, His Honor was not Catholic, but Lutheran. In accordance with Church discipline, the local ordinary (that is, Archbishop Theodore Cardinal McCarrick) permitted our separated brethren to use the Catholic cathedral for one of their own.

Given the defense of human life demonstrated by His Honor, when certain obstensibly Catholic occupants of the bench have not, I'll leave it to my readers to note the irony here.

(The move is moving along. I am still overwhelmed. And yet, as they say, "this too shall pass.")

Comment on "moving" in general:

When we left an apartment & ventured into ownership of real property, we dutifully wrapped up and packed our precious belongings in cardboard boxes, then out to the moving van they went. After a short trip to our new abode we reversed the process, but not all boxes were unpacked. Some we simply couldn't find a place for so up to the attic they went.

Now, some thirteen years later, said boxes are still up in the attic, unpacked, waiting patiently to find some place of reknown in our humble castle. Will that ever happen? Probably not, especially since we feel we've outgrwon our current home and are in the preliminary stages of finding a new home so we can start this whole happy, exciting process all over again.
