Can You Find the Books of the Bible?

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2010

The names of eighteen books of the English Bible are hidden in the text of the following paragraph. Can you find all sixteen of them? Remember, some names are found in parts of more than one word. For the answer, click here.

I once made a remark about the hidden books of the Bible. It was a lulu. Kept people looking so hard for facts and for others it was a revelation. Some were in a jam, especially since the names of the books were not capitalized. But the truth finally struck home to numbers of readers. To others, it was a real job. We want it to be a most fascinating few moments for you. Yes, there will be some really easy ones to spot. Others may require judges to help them. I will quickly admit it usually takes a minister to find one of them, and there will be loud lamentations when it is found. One little lady says she brews a cup of tea, so she can concentrate better. See how well you can compete. Relax now for there are really sixteen names of books of the Bible in this story.

The Vatican on Rock Music

by Steve Ray on February 17, 2010

L’Osservatore Romano ranks the top hits of rock music
The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has offered its list of the top 10 albums in this history of rock music. The list begins with the Beatles’ Revolver, followed by David Crosby’s If I Could Only Remember My Name and Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. Other artists included on the Vatican newspaper’s list are Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, Michael Jackson, Paul Simon, U2, Carlos Santana, and Oasis.

I might agree with some, but definitely disagree with others. Good thing neither I nor the L’Osservatore Romano are considered infallible :-)

Another good article on this here.


Lenten Exercizes

Thought I’d pass this along. A friend sent this to me saying, ” A few S.J. friends of mine have started a blog for Lent using the spiritual exercises of St. Ignatius. It could be a handy resource.
