I knew it was Barzini all along.

The Merry Wives of Windsor
The world is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil;
    It gathers to a greatness, like the ooze of oil
Crushed. Why do men then now not reck his rod?
Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And wears man's smudge and shares man's smell: the soil
Is bare now, nor can foot feel, being shod.

And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
And though the last lights off the black West went
    Oh, morning, at the brown brink eastward, springs
Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast and with ah! bright wings.

A book about venerable Solanus Casey. Needs one more miracle for canonization.

Just finished The Prince by Machiavelli. Now on to Campus Confidential: 100 startling things you don't know about Canadian universities.

The Leonard Feeney Omnibus. Whatever some might think of his upholding of strict EENS, his prose and verse is charming.

Also Eamon Duffy's Royal Books and Holy Bones. The author of Stripping of the Altars provides an evocative set of essays which tries to understand medieval piety.

But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.

Oh Kaes, my head, heart and soul are reeling with Dominicana!   Then I attended my first 3rd Order meeting today, and feel on fire.   Literally, within a matter of days, the entirety of my spirituality is changed.
