The heart of the Christian community is our Triune Lord: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. Geography, history, and numbers are not the heart, but probably I will type mostly on these topics. As the internet already provides many encouraging spiritual guides and discouraging contentious forums, I intend to offer neither.
To find a parish, enter a keyword in the search box at the top left, or look through the labels and links down the right-hand column. The posts themselves follow the Blogger format of newest items on top.

For some time, the richness of the hymns sung in church has piqued my curiosity.  By hymns, I include the psalms, the canticles, such as the Benedictus and the Magnificat, the ancient hymns, as the Trisagion, the hymns of St. Thomas Aquinas, those of John Wesley, and hymns of more recent times.  As Google's Blogger allows posts to be updated, I don't know where this post will lead.
For starters, today we sang a hymn by Omer Westendorf, whose life was entirely in the 20th century, with a Welsh melody.  In searching for his biography, I came upon this most interesting site from Collegeville.
