    Blessed Sebastian of Aparico

    in Religion

    Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org


    Sebastian’s roads and bridges connected many distant places. His final bridge-building was to help men and women recognize their God-given dignity and destiny.


    Sebastian’s parents were Spanish peasants. At the age of 31 he sailed to Mexico, where he began working in the fields. Eventually he built roads to facilitate agricultural trading and other commerce. His 466-mile road from Mexico City to Zacatecas took 10 years to build and required careful negotiations with the indigenous peoples along the way.


    In time Sebastian was a wealthy farmer and rancher. At the age of 60 he entered a virginal marriage. His wife’s motivation may have been a large inheritance; his was to provide a respectable life for a girl without even a modest marriage dowry. When his first wife died, he entered another virginal marriage for the same reason; his second wife also died young.


    At the age of 72 Sebastian distributed his goods among the poor and entered the Franciscans as a brother. Assigned to the large (100-member) friary at Puebla de los Angeles south of Mexico City, Sebastian went out collecting alms for the friars for the next 25 years. His charity to all earned him the nickname "Angel of Mexico."


    Sebastian was beatified in 1787 and is known as a patron of travelers.

    Audio Blog Series: Megan Hollingsworth's The Trading Post

    in Environment

    Megan Hollingsworth. The Trading Post. Megan writes: A large prairie dog colony was massacred in anticipation of the ‘Nation's Biggest Mall’ at Castle Rock, Colorado. If young children could comprehend the loss of life and exploitation required to fill the shelves in the mall; slave labor, soil lost, homes lost, family members lost ~ they would refuse the items. This has been my response upon waking to what is underneath the peaceful facade. I battle the materially pacified culture every time I enter a general store with my son, who is attracted to things and too young to absorb the immorality and loss of all that is traded for them. Often, my frustration boils over. He then feels through me a pain that I manage through writing; a pain for which his only outlet is rage.

    The Virtuous Woman Mindset

    in Women

    A good woman is hard to find, and worth far more than diamonds. Her husband trusts her without reserve, and never has reason to regret it. Never spiteful, she treats him generously all her life long.  She shops around for the best yarns and cottons, and enjoys knitting and sewing.  She's like a trading ship that sails to faraway places and brings back exotic surprises.  She's up before dawn, preparing breakfast for her family and organizing her day.  She looks over a field and buys it, then, with money she's put aside, plants a garden.  First thing in the morning, she dresses for work, rolls up her sleeves, eager to get started.  She senses the worth of her work, is in no hurry to call it quits for the day.  She's skilled in the crafts of home and hearth, diligent in homemaking.  She's quick to assist anyone in need, reaches out to help the poor.  She doesn't worry about her family when it snows; their winter clothes are all mended and ready to wear.  She makes her own clothing, and dresses in colorful linens and silks.  Her husband is greatly respected when he deliberates with the city fathers. She designs gowns and sells them, brings the sweaters she knits to the dress shops.  Her clothes are well-made and elegant, and she always faces tomorrow with a smile.  When she speaks she has something worthwhile to say.  She keeps an eye on everyone in her household, and keeps them all busy and productive.  Her children respect and bless her; her husband joins in with words of praise:  "Many women have done wonderful things,but you've outclassed them all!" Charm can mislead and beauty soon fades. The woman to be admired and praised is the woman who lives in the Fear-of-God.  Give her everything she deserves! Adorn and decorate her life with praises!

    2016 continues to take an uneven path. There's little to celebrate as it does

    in Politics Conservative

    More crazy events keep 2016 on track wtih its ever uneven tone.


    Much has been made by the Trump camp over it's win in the New York Republican primary. But the bigger revelation may be how few Republicans there are in New York. Trump actually scored a couple hundred thousand more votes when he came in #2 in Texas than he did this week's first place NY primary finish.


    Too many Americans still expect to be saved, both personally, and as a nation, by a political messiah. There are no messiahs this election cycle, only candidates trading on various shades of gray. Have you seen the video circulating of a "generic presidential candidate" campaign ad?  


    Don't get sucked into overly emoting your poltical decisions.


    Meanwhile, simple preps intended to counter any upcoming unpleasantness or service disruptions continue to be a sound strategy to keep life on track. Even simple things taken for granted as recently as a decade ago may now be hard to come by.

    Josh Norman is a WHAT? / NBA Playoffs Round One

    in Sports

    With the NFL Draft approaching, our favorite pastime is back in the spotlight once again. First, the Philadelphia Eagles moved up to the no.2 spot by trading their 8th overall pick, plus a few valuable selections in the early rounds, to the Cleveland Browns. Subsequently, placing them in a rather precarious position to select another sub par QB. Then not to be outdone by the Eagles futility, the Panthers rescinded the franchise tag on Josh Norman, making him an unrestricted free agent. Who saw that one coming? On the other side of the sports sphere, the crew of INtheZONE will also give their analysis and predictions for the upcoming rounds of the NBA Playoffs.
