“Nobody is really trying their best…”

Is this not too sadly the truth?

I would not, perhaps, say “nobody.” But all too few, comparatively speaking… all too few.

 

Glories of the West: The Beauty of French Architecture | Architectural Revival

“The Beauty of The Kingdom of France: The Creation of the French People. Vive la France! Vive le Roi!”

“Good things are easily destroyed, but not easily created. When we build, let it not be for our time, but all time. Real architecture stands the test of time, aesthetically & physically.”

Another example of what we are struggling for.

 

It’s Friday: Keep the Fast. Pray the Litany.

I’m a little late with this, I must confess. Blame it on the fact that I just had the idea of posting it about a half-hour ago! Yes, I know. Should have thought of it long before. I’ll try to be more proactive on future Lenten (and Advent) Fridays!

Be that as it may: this image is from a good friend of mine on Facebook. It’s good advice in general – and even more so, now that Lent has begun! So, on this Friday after Ash Wednesday: Keep the Fast. Pray the Litany. And may God grant you a holy, blessed, and fruitful Lenten observance!

It's Friday – keep the Fast, pray the Litany
