Beautiful Seed

In the title song to her latest album, Corrinne May says that no matter how insignificant we may think we are, each one of us has the potiental to make a tremendous difference in this world. All we need is faith, and we can move mountains.

Please take a few moments and enjoy this live performance of "Beautiful Seed", by Corrinne May:

As Corrinne says in the song, there is hope in every heartbeat.

Music Video: The Answer, by Corrinne May

I was listening to Pandora last night, and heard a beautiful and inspiring song of faith by Corrinne May called "The Answer". Here is a music video of the song I found on You Tube. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics: I believe You are the answer to every tear I’ve cried. I believe that You are with me, my rising and my light. Give me strength when I am weary. Give me hope when I can’t see. Through the crosses I must carry, Lord, bind my heart to thee. That when all my days are over and all my chores are done, I may see Your risen Glory, forever where You are.

"I personally think abortion is wrong, but..."

Painted Tomatoes

As I've talked to people on Twitter about the abortion issue, I've encountered three basic types of people:

  1. People who think abortion is wrong for everybody.
  2. People who think abortion is right for everybody.
  3. People who think abortion is wrong for them personally, but believe that other people shouldn't be prevented from having one if they feel abortion is right for them.
The people that I find the most fascinating are the ones that fit type #3. Whenever I encounter someone that holds this belief, the first thing I ask them is why they think abortion is wrong for them personally? I posed this question to a person on Twitter last night, and she said she was personally against abortion for "religious reasons". I then asked her why her religion was against abortion. She responded that her religion is against abortion because "it's considered murder". I then said to her, "You're against abortion because you believe it's murder, but you don't want to take away other people's right to murder?" She responded "Yes, I believe it's a woman's choice." I then asked her "Do you support laws that prevent women from murdering born people?" It doesn't surprise me that I never received a response. If the woman responded that she supports laws that prevent women (and, obviously, men) from murdering other born people, she would appear hypocritical because of her stance on abortion. How could she support laws that prevent others from murdering born people, but not support laws that prevent others from murdering unborn people?

In Germany in during World War II, when the holocaust was occurring, it would be interesting to know if there were Germans who said "I personally think killing Jews is wrong, but I don't think it's right for me to prevent other Germans from killing Jews, if they think it's right for them." I wonder...

Read All About It: Announcing the Roamin' Catholic Daily

Earlier today I discovered a cool web site called where you can create a free online newspaper that generates its content from Twitter. You can create a newspaper based on content from a particular Twitter user and the people that he or she follows, from a Twitter hash tag, or from a Twitter list.

I created a newspaper today called the Roamin' Catholic Daily. Catchy name, huh? The content of the paper consists of articles tweeted by myself and the people I follow. So, if a person I follow posts a tweet with a link to an article on, for example, the article will appear on my newspaper. Way cool. I was quite pleased with the first edition. The quality of the articles featured reveals the quality of the people I follow.
