Last fall I got out my stamp collection to work with … across the past several years I hadn’t stopped collecting (i.e. accumulating) I hadn’t really organized, identified, or mounted.  I also hope to get back to learning how to sew, and perhaps even complete my first quilt.

I enjoy memorizing koranic verses.

It's a relaxing exercise.

I like memorizing my favorite Bible verses.  ;D I tried reading the Koran in college (before I reverted), and it was extremely confusing.

I like memorizing my favorite Bible verses.

Yet another project on my list, embroider my favorite Bible quotes onto squares of fabric and incorporate them into a quilt...

In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

Ask Vetus for help wit the confusing korap verses.

Junk shops.  Some stuff I grab to sell on eBay.  I love running across things like the Tom Thumb cash register I had when I was five years old.  I knew a gal who would love to search for horrible 1960s and 70s clothing.  She would buy it and promptly loose it in her basement.  I like searching through books at goodwill.  I keep a lookout for Catholic books to buy for the prison ministry or myself.

No, no. I was taking a world religions class and realized I didn't know anything about the Koran. Because it was so confusing, I still don't, but that doesn't bother me anymore because I'm focusing on my own tradition now.

Do you run a prison ministry? If so, can you tell us a little about it?
"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

You wouldn't be from just north of Ocala, Florida would you? You sound like someone I know from there who is a bibliophile and mines the thrifts, among other places. He actually posts here. Goes by the name of Gardener.

I'm not involved in prison ministry. But my luck it would be on the receiving end once the American Gulag starts.

Providence is a present mystery by which our hope is confirmed and our faith solidified, if we give not into despair or disbelief.

There is a junk or antique shop near me whose nordie owner has no appreciation of books, just bric a bric some use to fill there homes, so there I got both a 1930 hand missal with excellent prayer cards, at one point, and early, a St Anthony's Treasury, same year, both for next to nothing.

I've been able to find a number of nice vintage catholic items at a couple of local thrift shops. :):):)
