View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Patricia Neal Goes Home

Actress Patricia Neal - who won an Academy Award and starred in many films, including the original The Day the Earth Stood Still and the Walton's pilot, The Homecoming - died Sunday.

She had become a Catholic, and also had come to regret the abortion she had as a result of an affair with Gary Cooper. She later said that decision to abort was the one she most regretted in her life, and that she cried at nights decades later because of it. She spoke out fort life in her later years.

God be with her.
