N’ajustez pas votre appareil


I’ve been trying to change my blog’s visual theme for the last couple of days. I’m looking for a more streamlined appearance and I don’t like the white title over colour. It’s too busy. I found a theme that I liked but it made the pages published under The Running Diaries disappear. Then it wouldn’t deactivate certain widgets from the sidebar (the appear deactivated on the blog’s dashboard but still appear on the home page.) So bear with me and do not adjust your TV.

J’essaie de changer le thème de mon blog depuis quelques jours car je trouve le thème actuel trop distrayant. De plus, je n’aime pas le titre en blanc sur couleur. J’ai essayé un nouveau thème plus simple visuellement mais ce thème a fait disparaître les pages publiées sous la rubrique “Running Diaries”. Puis je n’arrive pas à enlever certains widgets du sidebar (belle phrase en franglais, hein?). Alors soyez patients et n’ajustez pas votre appareil.

A New Year’s Blessing


Today in the Roman Catholic Church is the Feast of the Solemnity of Mary Mother of God, which marks the end of the Octave of Christmas. I learned today that the Solemnity of Mary Mother God replaced on January 1st the Feast of the circumcision of Jesus, which, since you asked, is an awful good thing considering that on that day Roman Catholic Priests wear garments adorned with pictures of the Virgin Mary.

Ahem.

One of the readings for that day is from the book of Numbers and while I always expect it to go  “12, 48, 72…” it actually contains one of my favorite New Year’s Day blessing. Here it is, from my family to yours:

The LORD bless you and keep you!
The LORD let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The LORD look upon you kindly and give you peace!

Happy New Year!
