Via Whispers in the Loggia

Sirius Radio is going to have a Catholic Channel! This is good, although you never know how these things will work out. I am more excited to hear that Relevant Radio is coming to Long Island. A source told me there will be some local programming (think they will want a Gen X Show??). I have always enjoyed radio shows, especially when sitting in traffic, or when going to bed at night. Catholic radio could be good especially with interesting talk shows and interviews.
Should I comment on Pat McDonough's column in Newsday about The DaVinci Code?

"Perfect timing for 'The Da Vinci Code'
Post-crisis Catholics, questioning celibacy and marginalization of women by the church, will flock to theaters

No, I will just link to much better articles by Amy Welborn.

BOGO Wines

I read about this company in the National Catholic Register and have just ordered some wine now. I will let readers know how the wine is but the reviews look good. For each case of BOGO wine sold, the company donates money to adult stem cell research. The Thomas Hartman Foundation For Parkinson's Research is one of the organizations supported. BOGO stands for Buy One Give One, and the wine is sold in twin packs.

5/10/06 Update: I have become an affiliate to help advertise this wine.

David Blaine didn't make the world's record for holding his breath underwater. However, I believe he still holds the world record for most annoying human being.
Wedding Music

Entrance Hymn: Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring

Post-Vows: Litany of Saints

Alleluia: Celtic

Offertory: Ave Maria (Schubert)

Agnus Dei: Chanted, latin

Communion: How Beautiful (Twila Paris)
Panis Angelicus (Franck)

Recessional: Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee

Nothing out of the ordinary really, except perhaps the Litany. Eucharistic Prayer I will be used. There is going to be enough incense to choke a horse!
