My Friend Monsignor Eugene Morris

I was just recently a house-guest at Monsignor Eugene Morris's rectory in St. Louis (
St. Mary Magdalen), when I was in town for some projects. What a treat!

I've known Monsignor Morris for a year or two, though not very well, so it was good to have the chance to get to know him better during my visit. In addition to his being an all-around good guy and a gracious host, I am impressed by his personal orthodoxy, erudition, bon homie, and dedication to furthering the mission of re-evangelizing and recatechizing young Catholics.

Apropos of that, here's a video clip of the good Monsignor commenting on the many merits of the Didache catechetical series.

Cremation . . . Jewelry?

I shall pass over this one in discrete silence.

From the website:
Cremation jewelry is, simply put, jewelry that contains some of the cremated ashes of a deceased family member or loved ones. Cremation jewelry has many names and comes in a variety of forms, but no matter the words used, cremation jewelry is among the newest and most popular ways to memorialize loved ones.

(My thanks to the blogger whose site I saw this on, though now I can't remember where!)
