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.

The front page of today's New York Times, 11.26.2012, carries frightful reports of fighting in the eastern or northeastern Congo.  I note that this has a connection to Long Island.  The Blue Point Ursulines, who have staffed schools in the diocese of Rockville Centre, have origins from Tildonk, Belgium.  The same Tildonk Ursulines have a vice-province in the Congo, at Bukavu, a large city towards which the rebels are moving.  An article about the troubles is linked here.
Yesterday, the lector at St. William the Abbot parish read a petition about the Ursulines in the Congo.  Today's news, unfortunately, narrates chaos, war, and suffering.
