Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Not really apropos for this blog entry perhaps, but Fr Tim I thought you would appreciate this link to an obit about Fr.

I watched it all - and thought the second half was better!
Thanks, Lee - I'll take a look at that.And thanks, Peter - I'll watch it all through :-)
I thought both stories are excellent and I got a great deal of identification with the young lad. I am 48 and still living taht way!
Oh dear! That second half was like watching myself...ouch.I'm even going on retreat in just a couple days. I'm not sure whether to laugh or be concerned.
There is something quietly exasperating about the implicit comparison being made between the lifestyle of a secular priest and the religious life of nuns.Are potential seminarians always pretty-boy losers without any friends (female or otherwise)?On the other hand, the comparison of a vocation to the religious life with a "vocation" to marriage just seems weirder every time I think of it.Well, I'm off to watch the end of The Sound of Music, one more time!
The young man's "busy" weekends remind me of the (very) old song "Busy doing nothing".
