"Agreed, Daniel! There are a surprising number of places on this globe we know little to nothing about, never mind many regions on the other planets in our solar system. It's funny you mention Congo -- I am planning to visit the area (Cameroon,…"
"I have always had the same question, I wonder what is "next". I recently heard that the Congo is about as inhospitable as a place can be, and that it has not been fully explored. I also think that our knowledge of the oceans and our diving…"
"Your argument is flawed. First, generally speaking, most people believe that theirs is the one true faith; otherwise, why would they follow it? Clearly based on your own arguments and comments, you believe that your interpretation to be more correct…"
""Nothing but your words themselves betray your white knight syndrome: Am I alone in these sentiments? Are there other young men in this age who yearn to defend that which so easily goes defenseless?
And you obviously feel the need to prepare…"
"Wow, I'm blown away by your passion. While I can't call myself a young man by any stretch of the word, I too am passionate about defending our precious faith and helping to spread it "to the ends of the earth."
There is no need…"
"Well I have one more option that can might be able to help - a very good friend who is currently a firefighter, but by education is an architect.
His specialty happens to have been the history and design of churches. Let me reach out to him and see…"
"The Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (Fssp) performs the TLM in Rome at:

Piazza della Trinità dei Pellegrini

"While I haven't heard about this particular publication before and therefore cannot comment directly about it, I love to see the growth in interest in the TLM. Many of our bishops dislike the TLM because they see it as an unnecessary return to…"
You're right, and that fact clearly demonstrates the lack of proper instruction that John is referring to. For too long, the progressive leaders in the Church have placed too much emphasis in so-called "social justice"…"
I can totally understand why you would feel the way you expressed. It is easy to feel morally disconnected, if you will, from all the hoopla and events going on around us in the political arena and question just how much of an impact any…"
Thanks for the links. I already know that they will be very helpful. Regarding my quote ("God in His infinite wisdom and mercy denies us knowledge of the joys of heaven so we can endure life here on earth."), after reading the…"
"I'm stunned by the timing of your question because just yesterday I was reading the cover story of the Oct 15th Newsweek magazine about a neurosurgeon who had a near deat experience and allegedly saw heaven. It's a very interesting article…"
"Thanks much - I've had many excellent discussions with people of many faiths, but this gentleman had no clue how disrespectful he was being of Catholic teachings. Or perhaps he did have a clue....
In any event, thanks again."
Recently, one of by biology professors was injured and now is out for two weeks. Now we have this other lecturer filling in for her. The woman is some nature of middle eastern, and thus has an accent, but nothing is objectionably wrong with her use of English. However, she's quiet and has a very soft spoken sort of voice.

"I trim with a clipper when it gets too long but I don't shave completely.
I don't shave or trim my chest hair either though I make sure to shave down the front of my neck far enough to get rid of anything that would peek up from under my…"
"Most people don't know the difference between an immigrant and a refugee, or a random refugee and a Convention refugee, so it's safe to say that there are plenty of nuances that are flying over most peoples' heads."
"I understand. I go shirtless as much as I can. I am very comfortable alone or with other guys being shirtless. If I am at a beach, pool, or other place where being shirtless is generally the norm, I will be shirtless around women. However, when…"
It's just seems natural that Art of Manliness should have a barbershop group. My intent of this group is to gather and share general thoughts and experiences concerning barbershops. Anything from a good barbershop that you have found to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop. See More
