The Conversion of St. Paul

I know Whom I have believed, and I am certain that He is able to keep that which I have committed to Him, against that day; being a just judge.

With today's feast, the Octave of Prayer for Christian Unity comes to a close, but I don't suppose that means that one should stop praying for conversions to the true faith...

I am a big fan of Caravaggio, by the way. His paintings are always arresting. Here is his "Conversion of St. Paul", dating from 1600.

Meanwhile, I am contem-plating throwing out my paper on Galatians 3:13 altogether, and starting afresh, perhaps with some-thing more interesting from Romans...

How about some pictures of the kids? I think it's been awhile since we've had any new one up here.

Maria reading a story book to Thomas.

A huge triumph for me, getting this kid to sleep when we were home alone earlier this week.

yeah... caravaggio is alright i guess.
i prefer the work of egon schiele. not quite the same subject matter - but also very arresting.

good lookin' kids.
