and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.
The Lord redeems the lives of his servants;
no one incurs guilt who takes refuge in him."
This last is not Ljubljana Grad. I could not end this entry without noting Penn State's magnificent win over Ohio State yesterday. The game began at 2 AM LJ time. As I had the 11 AM Mass I didn't even try to watch it on ESPN (the subscription is only 20 Euros per month to watch either live or on demand). I slept well last night, a notable event in itself, and woke at 7. Grabbed the computer while still in bed and went to ESPN. I blinked several times, wondered if these miserable drugstore readers (the new ones arrive in ten days) were screwing up my vision, and then went quietly insane. I didn't watch the game until after Mass and lunch whereupon I pulled it up on the computer and opened a 16 oz. beer. Absolutely glorious moment that brought back many memories of my years as a student and the many games I attended as season ticket holder of 27 years. According to Fr. Jack Butler, SJ I didn't go to a university. I joined a cult. I've never argued about the truth of that statement. FOR THE GLORY . . .
