Found a well-done Catholic article on it yesterday and added it to my site.

You do realize the post you are referring to is over 9 years old....

Awesome! Thanks! I was worried this suggestion might not be acted upon!  :)

This is beautiful.  TYF has been vindicated.  It took 9 years but you got a response to your thread!   ;D

I think this one could make a reasonable claim to be the OHT (Original Halloween Thread).

I think this thread Resurrection is a record breaking event even Severian couldn't do.  2002 is quite some time.
Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

That is why I was so pleased that TYF responded! To my best recollection, this 9 year resurrection is a record!

And, just so folks know: sometimes I get asked about whether it's OK to resurrect a thread. Honestly, I would rather have a thread resurrected than multiple threads about the same topic. The single threads help in research and other inquiries.

Well, in all fairness, the superlative thread-resurrectioner Severian is busy with school. Give him time.
