    Each day our local paper prints a "Daily inspiration" from a local pastor (each pastor gets a full week)
    Here is todays inspiration:
    Darkness scares us. We tend to spotlight and fluoresce everything we can. But the birth of Jesus, which Christians begin celebrating tonight, couldn't have happened without the holy darkness of Mary's womb: without the darkness behind the closed eyelids of a laboring women: without the darkness of the space between skin and swaddle. tonight, in honor of the holy darkness, turn off the lights for a while and pray to be formed by the God that swept over the waters before there was light. Pray for the darkness to become like the Womb that bore the world. Pray for gestation. Pray for birth

    How much are the rosaries? All hail Mary, Mary, Mary--still a lot of womb worshippers around.

    There is none good but One--we crucified Him.

    Now what? Only Jesus saves.

    Even so, come Lord Jesus.

    Peace,

    Bro. James

    Bro James...

    Goodness, lighten up francis!

    I didnt get any sense of "womb worship" or Catholic Mary worship in that at all.

    You must not have had your cheerios today. :)
