I did a post a while back about first class relics of St. Maria Goretti coming to Tyler in a couple of months.  Well, God be praised, they’ll be a lot closer than that, at St. Monica parish in Dallas on Tuesday, Nov 3 from 11a – 11p.

“First class relics” doesn’t do justice – this is Saint Maria Goretti’s entire incorrupt remains available for veneration.

So you have that to look forward to.

A couple of funnies:

Might have been more true if half the sheep were already dead with blood all around, and the sheep doing the chastising was dressed in cassock and 78 years old.

Even better:

Willie re homeschooling

In this culture, it is almost impossible to escape absorption of really destructive ideas.  But I do think a good deal of the opposition to homeschooling, especially unthinking comments like “but what about socialization?!?” stems not from just blind acceptance of cultural propaganda but also a great deal of self-justification.  Parents who homeschool are threatening to those who do not.  Mom staying home to not just raise the kids but actually school them is a tremendous investment in time and energy, almost always involving a great deal of material sacrifice on the part of the family.  Every parent likes to believe they are doing wonderfully by their children, but homeschooling is such a huge and countercultural trump in this area it unnerves a great many people.

So what does our culture teach people to do when someone obviously excels far above others?  To “level the playing field.”  Remember the imbecile  who said that parents who read to their children should feel guilty because they are giving their children “unfair advantages” by doing so?  How do you imagine influential dweebs like that guy feel about homeschooling?  Or elite private schooling, for that matter?

I pray a great deal that my wife and I will be able to continue homeschooling our children until they are through high school. I am not at all certain that it will be “permitted” to do so.

Hello. Her body is not incorrupt. More info is on the website http://www.mariagoretti.com. Better not to spread incorrect info.

What Peter says, she is not incorrupt. That being said, I believe St. Goretti is one of the most important saints of our times, and that all should have a regular devotion to her.

I went to the website and she is not incorrupt. I love the saints and have devotion to many of them. However, in looking at the wax body of St. Maria, there’s something morbid about it. I can see having a relic but to make a wax body and transfer it around seems I can’t think of the word.
