How is Alxandra not a priest's wife by yesterday?  Or at least a seminarian's fiancee.
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

That would be so wonderful. There isn't a seminary in the city I live, but there is one a few hours away. I would like to visit but I am very very shy. Please pray for me :)

That's what I aspire to be. I'm still a work in progress.

What's that supposed to mean? There's been a lot of speculation about your gender on another thread, are you finally revealing it (even if in an extremely cryptic manner)?

He means it's so rare to find a man (presumably excepting himself, that pinnacle of male maturity, the agnostic Christian-forum troll).

I did not find the 'kid hanging from the refrigerator by his clothes' pic someone asked for, but I did find these while I looked...





And another one, which I suppose some might consider unsafe for work (even though there's nothing graphic, and it's blurred anyway).
