     by Katherine

Ponderisms

I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes.

There are two kinds of pedestrians: the quick and the dead.

Healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

The only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth.

Pope BXVI and 17,000 priests
The grace-filled year for the whole Church came to an even more grace-filled end!
Proverbial Piety
Hope for the One who Loves the Gospel of Life. Life and destruction oppose one another. The language of this Proverb links us to other passages of the scriptures.
