Catholic higher education

The Archbishop of Denver offered his views concerning Catholic higher education earlier this year:

The genius of a Catholic education is to anchor the yearnings, the brilliance and the glory of the human mind in the greatness of God. Man has no security outside the guarantees of God’s love. If we deny Him, we deny ourselves. If we do not know Him, we cannot know ourselves.

And he hopefully provides this quote from St. Augustine:

Bad times, hard times -- this is what people keep saying; but let us live well, and times shall be good. We are the times. Such as we are, such are the times.

Harry's performance as Seeker

On a recent trip to Minneapolis, I had the great pleasure to stay with my brother Keith, his wife Molly, and their son A.J. We visited the fascinating Mill City Museum, and Keith showed me his useful and well-done addition to the Wikipedia entry on quidditch: Harry's performance as Seeker.
