Just a quick note for those interested in the intellectual side of our life as well as the pictures of Maria. We added a link to a blog called Rorate Coeli on the sidebar under "Our Favorite Sites." It's one we've come to enjoy reading, and right now they are spotlighting Pope Pius XI's encyclical on ecumensim, Mortalium animos (Epiphany, 1928) as we approach the 80th anniversary of its promulgation. This, together with Pope Leo XIII's 1896 encyclical Satis cognitum, is essential reading for the Catholic Church's teaching on ecumensim.
Lisa is getting quite talented at pouring beer. Our favorite here is called Berg König (Mountain King). Pictured below are fine examples of a "Blooming Head" and "Belgian Lace."
