Bio:

I am the eldest of seven children, a daughter/sister/aunt/great-aunt/niece; committed prayer-partner, retiree who’s worked as a certified hospital chaplain.  I am Roman/Latin Catholic. I’m a Republican by registration; a ‘theocon/values voter’ by self-definition. The so-called “life issues” are of foundational importance to me. I read voraciously, cross-stitch periodically.

Would welcome this - since an authoratative translation is hard to find and well beyond my price range!  Looking forward to it - thanks Q & Jules!

Katie, as one who knows of homosexuals who struggle to remain *faithful* and *celibate*, I use "actively homosexual" to describe those who politicize their orientation, or use it as a weapon.  (I refuse to apply the word "gay", as many of these folks are anything *but* that.)

As one who straddles PJ23 and PJPII (aged 55), I thank you for this post, J! When I needed belonging/affirmation/acceptance as a teen/young adult with a disability, butterflies, warm fuzzies and "Here I Am, Lord" (See Isaiah 6:8ff) gave me the strength to move forward in faith to degrees in Psychology and Theology and very fulfilling work as a hospital chaplain. I don't see this as 'either/or', but 'both/and'.

Dr. Healy, I've been following "Person Of Interest" since it began: absorbing; with a plot and references to complex (for Hollywood) moral questions...That said, I'm investing in episodes of "Ironside", "Quincy", "Longstreet" and, of course, "Cadfael".  The TV is, more than not, a monitor at my house.

Stay informed
