Today was confirmation day. Congratulations to the classes of St. Mary's and St. Patrick's here in Iowa City.
A brief thought from a conversation I had today via instant messenger:
China ordains some bishops, the Pope and Cardinal Zen react... They're [the PRC leadership] post-modern technocrats from the eastern tradition, they don't 'reason' as we do.
By the way, if anyone wants to talk, my AIM screen name is Sephiroth9611 (don't ask what it means, it's old).
