Danger Mouse

I watched Danger Mouse religiously as a young lad growing up in the whirlwind of the 80's. The British should be proud.
Danger Mouse, for those of you who DON'T know, is a cartoon superhero created in England By Cosgrove/Hall Productions Limited... Danger Mouse is a wacky and hilarious adventure about a White Secret Agent Mouse, and his trusty bumbling sidekick hampster assistant, Penfold.... Together, they are given assignments by Colonel K, Their commander/walrus. The orders consisted of doing battle to save the world from monsters, master thieves, and crazed fiends of all types with the most prolific being their arch nemesis megalomaniac frog, Baron Silas Greenback and his henchman crow, Stiletto.
It gave me a penchant for mind boggling mysteries, like what's up with being chased by giant rolling balls in a South American jungle, only to get holed as an unknowing participant in a huge game of snooker.
Danger Mouse: It's alright, Penfold, it'll just be Colonel K with some mind boggling mystery for me to solve.

Colonel K: Ah, good show, DM. I've got a mind boggling mystery for you to solve.

Danger Mouse: I'm all ears, Colonel!

Colonel K: Well, none of us is perfect, DM.
Or how about the time when DM and Penfold venture passed the edge of the universe in their trusty space hopper?
Please Pray...

Please pray for the mother of a close childhood friend of mine. I still keep in touch with them. She has inoperable cancer of the intestine, and while doctors are evaluating treatments, it is uncertain how much time she may have left. Please include her and her family in your prayers. Her family has been so good to me. They included me in everything they did as a family. They could've adopted me, had I not had my own family! And though I can't speak a word of Spanish, being around them so consistently really helped my listening comprehension of the language. Their home was also a place where I saw the Catholic faith being lived consistently in a way that bound them together closely.
All wisdom is from God

Sirach 1:1-8
All wisdom comes from the Lord and is with him for ever. The sand of the sea, the drops of rain, and the days of eternity -- who can count them? The height of heaven, the breadth of the earth, the abyss, and wisdom -- who can search them out? Wisdom was created before all things, and prudent understanding from eternity. The root of wisdom -- to whom has it been revealed? Her clever devices -- who knows them? There is One who is wise, greatly to be feared, sitting upon his throne. The Lord himself created wisdom; he saw her and apportioned her, he poured her out upon all his works. She dwells with all flesh according to his gift, and he supplied her to those who love him.
