    ironic on many levels. I know that it is a constant temptation for electronic media to be a lesser god.

    sorry father, but just a bit pricey, besides could it be considered worshiping a false god ?

    Beautiful, and a constant reminder that even when entering into the computer age and especially using the internet, we must always be focusing on holy things that glorify God!

    Also, a great conversation piece. Why not download a really beautiful image and use it as desktop wallpaper?

    Creepy. Just creepy.

    As I was telling a co-worker, there would be no way I could go to websites that are contrary to Church teaching with that around my computer. It would be wrong on so many levels.

    The things that Windows users come up with… yuck.

    Is that a Breviary by the Gothic Computer?

  9. It looks like something out of Batman! Maybe a Catholic Batman would would have a white one to contact the Holy Father with iChat.

    I am happy to hear that the Bishops of Marquette and New Ulm are described here, on this neo-conservative semi-traditionalist blog, as “good”. I pray that they are good too. The Diocese of Marquette has recently suffered the loss of its only remaining Mass in the Traditional Rite (rite, not form), which was not offered on an every-Sunday basis in any event. I am praying that the Bishop there will restore the Gregorian Mass, preferably at a central location (Marquette, say, instead of Gwinn), where a community of supporters can grow.

    New Ulm is among the dioceses which have not had Traditional Latin Masses since in over thirty-five years. Let us pray that the new Bishop there will change that sitaution.

    - Fr Finelli, I once stumbled across a fascinating website speculating on the religious affiliations of comic-book characters – I think they concluded Batman was either Catholic or high-church Episcopalian.

    -Yes, here it is – apparently his Mother was Catholic, his Father Episcopalian, and some folk have way too much time on their hands:

    That looks a lot like the Steampunk keyboard that I’ve seen running around. And seeing this, I must admit, some days — especially for work — I feel like I am prostrating myself before some tiny, window into elsewhere.

    Fortunately, I have an actual window next to me even if it only shows me cars and trees.

    I do like how well they put that cabinet together, with the crimson offset from the wood paneling.
