1. A beautiful post about a seemingly beautiful man: Cardinal Peter Turkson. Welcome, new springtime of evangelization!
2. An insightful post about the loaves and the fishes...appropriate for a series of readings out of John 6 that Catholics around the world are hearing at Mass. See especially the readings selected for today (Aug. 2, 2009), which connect the Exodus story about manna in the desert with the Bread-of-life discourse in John 6.
