The Queue

I failed in my ambition to rediscover Rediscover Jesus during Advent/before Christmas, not finishing the fortieth chapter by Christmas Eve, but I've now dusted it off. Like Rediscover Jesus, Resisting Happiness is branded as part of Dynamic Catholic's "Best Lent Ever" program & will serve as the basis of the 2017 Lenten daily video program. I'm not going to read Resisting Happiness before Lent, but will explore it day by day through the season. Neither my mother nor I were particularly pleased with 2016's "Best Advent Ever" video offerings (both of us agreed that our time had been wasted); so, here's hoping for better things from 2017's "Best Lent Ever."

Also, it is a goal of mine to read Belloc's How the Reformation Happened this year, which marks the five hundredth anniversary of the Lutheran revolt, A.K.A. the Protestant Reformation, a massive outbreak of heresy that has lead directly to the atheism so prevalent in these latter days.
