bird + esse + happy place + Ave Maria

During Mass this morning, a bird flew in the Chapel and then right into a window.  He walked it off.  — we all prayed for him

AQUINAS + MEDIEVAL PHILOSOPHY class – (Fr Vallee) — we reviewed the hierarchy of “ESSE” … God (pure act) … angels (pure intuition) … human beings (discursive reasoning, dielectic) … sentient beings (animals) … animate (plants) … inanimate (rocks).  Also mentioned the importance of Ben’s “happy place.”

Somehow, we got talking about Barbara Streisand … her Christmas album … and her version of Ave Maria.  — I can’t believe I actually found this on YouTube … dedicated to Fr Vallee … it’s not so bad?
