I'm almost convinced Elvis is alive and relative well, living somewhere in Maine, USA. Really

Be neat lol.  We're a nice state, except for the politics, and to be fair, with the exception of our governor, when compared with the rest of NE we're not even that bad.  Lots of woods and nearly untouched lakes as well.
It has to do with the Brunswick NAS and the three successive catastrophe crashes of Orion aircraft at or around the time of his (Elvis) death. The air station was considered jinked after that, and closed in 2011. See, G. B. Giorgio had written a novel named 'Orion' which paralleled Presley's life including the novel's protagonist (Orion) faking his death. Anyway, just trying to lighten things up (grin) a bit.

I've read all four volumes.  They are on my desk right now.  I bought them on Bl. Solanus Casey's recommendation.

What do you think of it so far?

I love it. Gives one a lot to think about theologically. Also is very satisfying in that way that one wants to know more details about the hidden things pertaining to Divine Revelation.

I've been meaning to go and re-read all four volumes again. It's easily one of my favorite reads. I especially love the triumphalism involved with the Nativity and Flight into Egypt, notably the sheer power of the Incarnation forcing the demons into hiding and they being completely blind as to what happened.

Looking forward to those scenes! Admittedly less than 200 pages in before I took the break. Mainly because it became abundantly clear that I really needed to get a variety of ducks in a row asap and reading Soul of the Apostolate would be very beneficial to that.

I enjoyed reading about the fall of Satan and the stuff that backed up Dun Scotus’ Primacy of Christ and just the general importance of Our Lady from the very beginning of creation, really helps one understand the importance of her role as Mediatrix and Co-Redemptrix.

You'll see those scenes in the second volume, The Nativity. It really gives you pious emotions for sure.

Weird, I live a few minutes away from the NAS and learned to drive down there.  It's a neat place.

I've put everything else aside to read The Strange Death of Europe: Immigration, Identity, Islam, by Douglas Murray. It is gripping at the same time that it's very depressing. The title was inspired by a 1935 book called  The Strange Death of Liberal England. I would have titled it 'The Suicide of Europe'.

It details the 'immigration problem' in Europe up until 2017. Of course, the 'immigration problem' should be called the 'jihadist invasion problem'. It's a fascinating read, even if it is a downer.

Just finished Becoming A Healing Presence  by  Dr. Albert Rossi and am about 1/3 of the way through his All Is Well.  Wonderful stuff!!

I'm also reading Newt Gingrich's Duplicity, having just finished his Treason.  They're in reverse order, but that's how I was able to get them from the library.

On an ongoing basis I'm re-reading Humility of Heart by Rev. Fr. Cajetan Mary da Bergamo. 

On the next or nearly next list is Von Hildebrand's Jaws of Death: Gate of Heaven.

Part of my Lenten reading will be Fr. Tom Hopko's (of blessed memory) Lenten Spring.

Currently reading the book of Jeremiah, Dante's Paradiso, Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra", and Plautus' "Casina".

Recently finished the Passio Perpetuae et Felicitatis, which is mostly composed of Perpetua's first-hand account (actually written in her own hand!) of her own persecution. Someone else finished relating the actual martyrdom (obviously). Also read a transcription of an 8th century manuscript called the Passio Sancti Valentini Martyris.

I'm reading Meditations on the Tarot by Anonymous.  I'm almost finished with it.  Next I'll be reading Occult Phenomena in the Light of Theology by Abbot Alois Wiesinger, O.S.C.O.
