What have I Been Doing?

Kindly refer to the previous blog post if you find this video confusing.

What have I been doing? I have been very busy with work, writing, and in general doing things that make me have to decide between blogging and sleeping. Sleep, what little there is, has won out.

Despite this, Wifeofdadwithnoisykids and my oldest daughter have been reading a book called Christian Courtship in an Oversexed World by T.G. Morrow. It is an excellent book for young men and women, and we have found it to be quite good. My wife has read parts to me,but I would like to read all of it in the future.

T.G. Morrow makes a good point in one part of the book, where he argues that one should marry one's best friend. The purpose, therefore, of courtship is to get to know one another without getting too emotionally or physically attached. In that way, if the friendship does not lead to its ultimate end, it can be stopped without either party giving away one's self to the other.

Even secular folk can appreciate the importance of this lesson - although usually it is learned in retrospect. Let us examine this next video clip, paying special attention to the lyrics of this song-poem, and see how an old relationship can still cause distress in a man:

Prayer to Our Lady of the Mysterious Decapitation

Mary my mother, take my hand today, and all days.
Lead me away from all occasions of sin.
Guide me in fulfilling your last words in the Gospel,
"Do whatever He tells you."
