12 Days


Last year I stumbled upon an interesting blog that I still check on, one that has consistently made me think. Fr Peter Doodes has an admirable history, and is a clear thinker. I like his outlook on our world’s issues.

I saved this link to one of his posts. I had never before heard the explanation that he outlined, and I never want to forget it.

I have seen this story before - or one very very similar - & I too think it's REALLY interesting! Fascinating ...how the "silly song" becomes so much more meaningful "this way"!

I have seen it before, too, but I had forgotten all about it! Thanks for the educational, inspirational reminder.

It's SUCH a blessing I take for granted to be able to believe what I want and, for the most part, go and do what I want. This country and era, for all its foibles, is grand indeed.

Hi everyone,
I had not heard the explanation before last year. You can see that I was so fascinated that I kept the link. I hope everyone enjoyed it.
