Hello
« on: September 03, 2018, 01:35:10 AM »
Hi. I am pleased to be added to the forum after a bit of messing about. Sadly, I am a computer troglodyte  so if anything goes wrong I tend to want to wack the thing. I live in the antipodes.

"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Love Tolkien also; I only wish that he had been able to finish his whole history of Middle Earth.

Welcome.

Love Tolkien also; I only wish that he had been able to finish his whole history of Middle Earth.

What Tolkien needed was space and a secretary or two to organize his stuff so he could get at his notes.  Even with all that though, I doubt he could have brought the entire saga to a conclusion.  He was more interested in creating than finishing. :)

Welcome, friend.

Or to paraphrase Tolkien...

Speak Friend and Enter.

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love
