Please Don't Answer This Question!

Finally! The 100th Post!

Happy Feastday!

I consider myself an Ignatian in my spirituality, and I'm sending out a Happy Feastday to all my fellow Ignatius fans out there!
I think the Church has done a great disservice to Iggy by not making him a Doctor of the Church, as his spirituality has, positively and negatively, influenced modern development of Catholic theology and philosophy since the Protestant so-called Reformation. Most of the negative influence was not generated by Iggy himself, but by 1960's & 70's pseudo-intellectuals of his Society who thought psychology and sociology were more important than Orthodox Catholic Teaching. In my not-so-humble opinion, this distortion of Ignatian spirituality (along with the suppression of the Society in the 18th century) have kept Iggy from getting his "Doctorate".

Another Year Down the Tubes...

I'm glad (today at least) that I'm not married. I seem to have this bad habit of missing anniversaries. But Gem is celebrating her's and when I looked I found out I started this blog on 07/15/2007. Sorry dear, I'm bad.
