The aim of the society is to get the Bible, a collection of sixty-six books, written in three languages and covering more than a thousand years, to as many people as possible.
I was given an assignment for my theology class to create a mosaic. We had to recreate the icon of our choice. I instantly knew that I wanted to do Saint André. He is my patron saint and affects my daily life. As I was doing this project, which took all day to complete, I noticed something beautiful. I was spending hours putting tiny pieces of paper onto a poster board that would later create a larger image of someone amazing. Isn’t that what God did? He created the Earth for us. Then, He created us with a specific plan in mind.
There's nothing wrong with celebrating pretty dresses on Oscar night — so long as reporters take care to celebrate the women wearing them too.

Pancake Day, or Shrove Tuesday, is the traditional feast day before the start of Lent on Ash Wednesday. Lent - the 40 days leading up to Easter - was traditionally a time of fasting and on Shrove Tuesday, Anglo-Saxon Christians went to confession and were "shriven" (absolved from their sins). A bell would be rung to call people to confession. This came to be called the “Pancake Bell” and is still rung today.
Do you ever wonder if Jesus’ followers got confused when He spoke? I mean, when you hear Jesus said things like “He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for my sake will find it” (Matthew 10:39), do you think Peter and Andrew were a little confused but too embarrassed to admit it? When Jesus said, “The leader is one who serves” (Luke 22:26) can’t you almost imagine St. Matthew and St. Thomas nodding in agreement but silently wondering what the Lord was talking about?
What Stephen Fry doesn't seem to realize, is that in expressing his outrage as he does, he's actually undercutting his own position. He's giving voice to a brilliant proof for the existence of the very God he thinks he's denying.
