Reasonably Catholic: Keeping the Faith

The sights to go with the sounds

Photos from two NYC marches:

Saturday, Jan. 20th’s women’s march in New York City, one of many all over the world, that drew an estimated 200,000 like-minded men, women, children (and yes, even like-minded pets) to the streets around Central Park. Note the wagging finger at one of the Trump properties we passed: the chant there was “Shame! Shame! Shame!”

And

Sunday, Jan. 21st’s  Feminism & Faith in Union march that gathered in Union Square and began with a blessing by several noted feminist women, then paraded along 16th St. to the wonderfully progressive St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church.

Gives one hope.

A Beautiful March Weekend in January

Today: the sound of women — and the men and children who love them — taking to the streets of New York City.

Along with people all over the world, on Jan. 20, 2018, people gathered on the streets around Central Park to march in solidarity against the policies and behavior of the Trump Administration.

The next day, downtown, Catholic feminists — including men and children — gathered in Union Square and marched to St. Francis Xavier Church on 16th St., in solidarity for women’s ordination.

Art historian William E. Wallace, one of the world’s foremost experts on Michelangelo and the Renaissance, says a blockbuster exhibit of Il Divino‘s drawings on view until Feb. 12 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC is “a rare opportunity that probably won’t be repeated within lifetime.”

Wallace, a professor at Washington University in St. Louis, has spent his adult life studying Michelangelo and his world. The author of several books on his hero, shown above, he’s just completed another on Michelangelo’s architectural achievements. His series of lectures on DVD, The Genius of Michelangelo, is available through the Lion Library system.

This beautiful Snowy Owl was named Stormy by Patrick Comins, executive director of the CT Audubon Society, who shot the photos, because the weather for the Stratford/Milford, CT, Christmas Bird Count, on Dec. 23, was frightful. Comins and volunteer birder extraordinaire Frank Mantlik talked birds with Reasonably Catholic in what’s becoming an annual tradition.

Thank you so much to all of you who donated to WESU’s fall/winter pledge drive! Thanks to you, we met our goal!
