Just got this in Email...Food for Thought

J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R.*

This may seem like a winner 
but upon closer inspection, 
it is starting out with a faulty premise.  
The site states:

I have a little trick when it comes to
getting those "hard to reach" boys
excited about God:


It's an approach that's a little bit out of the box,
but I've been using it for years

and Almighty God is playing cards
or playing with Legos with
what precedes Him.

What Mary-Kate should have said:
God is the author of Light, Life, Love.
He is the source of all science
and all its laws,
and without Him willfully keeping 
it all in being,

death and dust... 


The word science comes 
from the original Latin, 
sciencia which means

Boys need it straight, 
not with tricks of the trade.

Nor do they need to be excited.
(feeling/emotion based faith)
If the Fullness of Truth is 
not hammered home
they are not founded on rock.

Sincerely yours in Jesus through Mary,

Imitate Mary
Become like Jesus
Live for the Triune God

Seek the Light of Our Lord Jesus Christ
See you on the High Ground!

* - J.M.J. + O.B.T. + M.G.R. stands for:
Jesus, Mary and Joseph;
O Beata Trinitas;
St. Michael, St. Gabriel and St. Raphael
