Year of Faith ideas, cotinued, plus tardy Q&A

On Wednesday I got carried away with Latin trivia and martyrdom, and so forgot to say that it was weekly Q&A time. Not that anyone is forbidden to ask a question in the comment boxes following any post at all. But in case anyone is waiting for permission, here you are.

We also talked last week about ideas for observing the Year of Faith.  One interesting suggestion was to make a pilgrimage to the church of one's own baptism.  This could be a very concrete way to help us ponder our own, earliest introduction to the household of faith.

Another activity worth considering is the weekly, line by line meditations on the Creed every Thursday over at the Wine Dark Sea.

The reading from morning prayer has good advice for all of us politically minded types during this interesting election season:
All bitterness, fury, anger, shouting, and reviling must be removed from you, along with all malice. 
Exactly the words I needed to hear today, how about you?
