The occasional, often ill-considered thoughts of a Roman Catholic permanent deacon who is ever grateful to God for his existence. Despite the strangeness we encounter in this life, all the suffering we witness and endure, being is good, so good I am sometimes unable to contain my joy. Deo gratias!

The thoughts expressed here are my personal thoughts and sometimes reflect my political views. As a private citizen I have every right to express these views.

ISIL: What We Can Expect

For those of you who consider the ISIL terrorists in Iraq and Syria to be no more than a local problem, one limited to the always volatile Middle East, I suggest you read the comments of the Chaldean Catholic Archbishop of Mosul. His warning to the Christians of Western Europe and the USA is quoted today by Fr. Dwight Longenecker in his wonderful blog: Standing on my Head. Check it out.

Fr. James Schall, another of my heroes, also offers some comment on the archbishop's warning: click here.
