Bought anything interesting lately?
« on: December 30, 2012, 11:49:04 PM »
Today at the SSPX chapel I attended, i picked up two new offerings from Angelus Press.  The first is their 2013 calendar, which has the theme "The Papacy."  The second is their new book "Young Man of Character," by Bishop Toth.  I hope the age range is applicable to me...  it wasn't very clear.  But, for $9, I figured it was worth picking up!  It looks really good....

I've bought everything in this picture(and some more related stuff) since the beginning of November. If only I could afford it.  :-\

A very nice Walther PPK style pistol (a clone). But it is a fine gun.



"Nothing is more miserable than those people who never failed to attack their own salvation. When there was need to observe the Law, they trampled it under foot. Now that the Law has ceased to bind, they obstinately strive to observe it. What could be more pitiable that those who provoke God not only by transgressing the Law but also by keeping it? But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who say so? The Son of God say so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?"  St. John Chrysostom  Sunday Homily

"The two goals of the Jews: The universal domination of the world and the destruction of Catholicism, out of hatred for Christ" --Mgr. Jouin

I bought a cooling pad for my laptop.  Also bought a four pack of Samuel Smith's Nut Brown Ale.  Expensive.  Lie ten bucks for a four pack.  Worth it. 
Ps 135

Quia in humilitáte nostra memor fuit nostri: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Et redémit nos ab inimícis nostris: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Qui dat escam omni carni: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Confitémini Deo cæli: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.
Confitémini Dómino dominórum: * quóniam in ætérnum misericórdia eius.

For he was mindful of us in our affliction: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
And he redeemed us from our enemies: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Who giveth food to all flesh: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Give glory to the God of heaven: * for his mercy endureth for ever.
Give glory to the Lord of lords: * for his mercy endureth for ever.

Some comicstuffs by Lorenzo Mattotti, occasioned by new interest in his work after seeing his latest New Yorker cover:

Quote from: Bishop Williamson
The "promise to respect" as Church law the New Code of Canon Law is to respect a number of supposed laws directly contrary to Church doctrine.

Re-stringing kit for my HUGE 32" ball-jointed, bisque-head doll. :D I'm so excited! I love being able to learn to do something myself instead of having to pay someone else to do it. Yay, YouTube!

Oooo vintage doll?  Niiiiiice.  I have a special fondness for dolls.  If I were rich, I'd get at least one of those Asian ball jointed dolls and dress her in Victorian clothing.   ;D   8)

I bought a ton of scrapbooking stuff.  And I'm using it -- AND I'm super happy with what I'm making, for once.   :P

Doll pattern to make a replacement body (if I can manage it) for my very broken ball-jointed doll. The head is still perfect, but I think I'll have to buy a shoulderplate in order to attach it to the body.



And more doll patterns, in case the above doesn't work, and since the seller offered fantastic combined shipping...





This last one is supposed to be based on old jointed "kid leather bodies," so I have high hopes for it. :) I'm so excited!! :D

A new blender base -- mine broke. 

New flip flops.

And, to get to Amazon's free shipping, a copy of The Three Conversons in the Spiritual Life.
