So far, I have have found items sent by kind readers from my amazon.com wish list!
Many thanks to MP of PA for the copy of the Collected Poems of St. Robert Southwell, a famous English martyr. Some of the poems are in Latin, most in Early-Modern English.
In eaves sole sparowe sitts not more alone
Nor mourning Pelican in desert wilde
Then sely I that solitarie mone
From highest hopes to hardest happ exild
Sometime o blissfull tyme was vertues meede
Ayme to my thoughtes guide to my word and deede.
But feares now are my pheares griefe my delight
My teares my drinke my famisht thoughtes my bredd
Day full of Dumpes nurce of unrest the nighte
My garmentes gives a bloody feild my bedd
My sleape is rather death then deathes allye
Yet kild with murdring pangues I cannot dye.
DS of CA sent me a copy of a book by Scott Hahn (I think the only one I have so far) Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology of Pope Benedict XVI.
From someone in Downers Grove, IL I received a CD of Gregorian Chant from the Institute of Christ the King: Mass of Our Lord Jesus Christ Sovereign and Eternal Priest, and for Sts. Peter and Paul, and also for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. I think Richard McBrien would enjoy this.
Also, I am seeing lots of activity around the feeders (now that I have filled them up upon my return). The male Goldfinches are well along in their color change. I am glad to see the Cardinal is still around.
I had the thought to go get a few things to help their nesting activities, if any of you want to pitch in.
