So, I guess Catholics like their sports. Did you know that there are entire lines of rosaries devoted to sports? There are rosaries with tiny footballs for beads, as in the one above, so that you can count your Hail Marys while simultaneously praying for a hail Mary on the field. And there are rosaries with tennis balls for beads so that you can ask our Father for His love while watching the players score love. How about that? Here’s a link to purchase them.
I can’t remember where I bought this Holy Bible alarm clock or I would tell you. I’ve had it for years. It makes me laugh out loud every time I use it. It opens backwards, like the Jewish Torah. I’m pretty sure it was made in China. When it goes off, it lights up and plays the “Hallelujah” chorus from Handel’s Messiah at full blast. This is the LOUDEST alarm clock I have ever owned. There is no way to turn it down. I use it when I absolutely, positively, must get up.

“Science without religion is lame; religion without science is blind.” —Albert Einstein
I love it because A) it’s funny, and B) it perfectly elucidates my view on why Christianity and evolution can and should be compatible. The Nat Geo story details how many scientists believe in God and how they understand that God could have driven evolution in His process of creating us.
Here’s another quote from the story:
“Scientists may be just as likely to believe in God as other people, according to surveys. Some of history’s greatest scientific minds, including Albert Einstein, were convinced there is intelligent life behind the universe. Today many scientists say there is no conflict between their faith and their work.”
