The Vine - Carl Larsson
Featuring some of what a Lutheran ordinariate has to offer to the greater catholic tradition.
So far that’s mostly Bach and sex. Ok marriage as vocation, but to the cultural Catholic ear i suspect it rings about the same.

Report: Snowy owls shot at NY airport to protect planes
The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey has ordered wildlife specialists at area airports to shoot snowy owls, a source tells NBC New York.
At least three birds have been killed, a Port Authority source tells the New York Daily News, which first reported the story.
But… wouldn’t they fly away once they realized there was a giant thing coming at them, like most birds?
This is sick. :(
Finally, a depiction of the meeting of St. Joachim and St. Anna at the gate by Hans von Kulmbach (1480-1522). The look they are exchanging, the sense of motion—one wants to avert the eyes, it is so intimate. They stand in a doorway, a threshold. Everything will soon change.
