Mastering the Art of French Cooking, by Simone Beck, Louisette Bertholle, and Julia Child.
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.

I think you're supposed to put a comma after "Cristo"

Unless you were trying to say something else

I kill me
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.

-I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

And although I'm not that into economics, I've recently bought Milton and Rose Friedman's Free To Choose. I've read a few chapters already. It's quite interesting.

How did you like it?

Very much.  I've always liked Forster's essays, but when I finally read A Passage To India I found it dull and preachy, and decided that his skills as novelist weren't as great as I thought they might be.  Fortunately, I picked up Howards End at a used book sale and decided to give it a go.  I'm glad I did.  Rather than being preachy, it's a terrific novel of ideas, ranging all over the Anglo-Saxon character and the modern way of life.  Forster hated the quickening of the contemporary pulse and the overall cheapening of things, and that sentiment is at the fore in Howards End.  I'd have to recommend it very cautiously on this forum, though, as his attitudes are very pessimistic in regards to capitalism and industrialism, which I imagine most people here are in favor of.

Really? I loathe both and would have thought any traditionalist Catholic would - Rerum Novarum comes to mind.
