This weekend say three of our young siblings graduating from college: One each at University of Dallas, Thomas More College and the Pontifical College Josephenum.
From now through Wednesday when the baby gets baptised (with two of the new graduates serving as godparents) the population of the Darwin household will be fluctuating between 8 and 12, up from its usual 5. So posting is going to be fairly light -- especially as I'm going to be very, very busy on the days that I'm in at work this week.
In the mean time, if you haven't seen it already, do pay a visit to Jimmy Akin's site where he's received permission to reprint a very good short story titled "Through and Through" by Catholic science fiction and fantasy author Tim Powers. There's discussion of the story here.
