How to Stop Complaining

Posted by James Hahn on

Saturday September 30th, 2017 Saint Jerome I'm a melancholic person.  I'm Eeyore and Puddle-glum rolled into one.  My favorite hobby/habit?  Complaining.  If you know anything about the melancholic personality you know that they generally see the world as it is.  This, in its self is not a bad thing.  However, melancholics have this nasty tendency to also idealize and see the world as it should be.  Therein lies the problem.  In one instance I can both see the world as it is and how it should be...let the complaining begin....

The Proof of a Relationship

Thursday September 28th, 2017 Saint Wenceslaus, Martyr Saint Lawrence Ruiz and Companions, Martyrs Luke 9:1-6 An earthly king doth question who, Be the man who dost such things. Be he a prophet or Elijah of old, Or the one whose neck made sword to ring? The king's perplexed, His vision blurred, His past and future vexed. Can bone and sinew, Join the spirit, And the living flesh? Tis not a prophet from of old, Nor the bane of Baal he sees. Tis not the Voice, No, none of these, Tis the everlasting King. Author's Note:  I realize that not everyone...

Luke 9:1-6


An earthly king doth question who,
Be the man who dost such things.
Be he a prophet or Elijah of old,
Or the one whose neck made sword to ring?

The king's perplexed,
His vision blurred,
His past and future vexed.
Can bone and sinew,
Join the spirit,
And the living flesh?

Tis not a prophet from of old,
