Solemnity Alert! Bratwurst Okay this Friday!


Don't forget to begin the solemnity of St. Peter and Paul tonight with Evening Prayer I.

Those of you who observe year-round Friday abstinence from meat will be pleased to remember that solemnities don't count.

We are serving beer and brats tomorrow night after our second Fortnight 4 Freedom lecture, taking advantage of this solemnity in the extreme. (title of lecture: What's the Big Deal About Contraception?)

So, do you think Sts Peter and Paul approve of this method for drawing people to learn why the Church holds this moral teaching which most of them don't like or follow?


  1. So how did the lecture go? Was it well-attended/well-received?

    1. Lecture was great--I finally have a handle on the basics of theology of the body. Attendance, unfortunately, could have been a lot better. The silver lining was that there was plenty of beer for those of us who did come.
