Fortenberry v Clinton :)


Thank you, e2.
Had I been there and had time, I would have addressed this with Clinton.
1. The Thomas Jefferson example doesn't work in this situation because we are talking about an organization (PP) that was founded on just those quotations that Fortenberry lists. If Thomas Jefferson had instituted a company that bought and sold people, (given his interest in slavery,) we would not be supporting that organization or giving it stimulus money.
2. She sounds pretty condescending.
3. I've forgotten. I've played pirate and helped Sophia cut and paste since I wrote number 1.
:)
Please excuse me.

Via Crucis AND Via Lucis

I just found out merely minutes ago that there is a devotion called Via Lucis, translated the Way of Light. Not to confuse you with Via Crucis (Way of the Cross) which is a devotion that commemorates the significant events of Christ's passion from the condemnation to being placed in the tomb. Here are the "stations" of Light if you are interested, along with their corresponding gospel texts---

Via Lucis

1. Jesus Rises From the Dead (Matthew 28:1-7)

2. The Disciples Find the Tomb Empty (John 20:1-9)

3. The Risen Lord Appears to Mary Magdalene (John 20:11-18)

4. The Risen Lord Appears to Two Disciples on the Road to Emmaus (Luke 24:13-27)

5. The Risen Lord Is Recognized at the Breaking of Bread (Luke 24:28-35)

6. The Risen Lord Appears to His Disciples (Luke 24:36-43)

7. The Lord Gives the Power to Forgive Sins (John 20:19-23)

8. The Lord Confirms the Faith of Thomas (John 20:24-29)

9. The Risen Lord Meets His Disciples on the Shore of Lake Tiberias (John 21:1-13)

10. The Risen Lord Confers the Primacy on Peter (John 21:15-17)

11. The Risen Lord Entrusts to His Disciples the Mission to the World (Matthew 28:16-20)

12. The Risen Lord Ascends to the Father (Acts 1:6-11)

13. Waiting for the Holy Spirit With Mary, the Mother of Jesus (Acts 1:12-14)

14. The Risen Lord Sends the Holy Spirit Promised to the Disciples (Acts 2:1-13)
