Holy Thursday's Watch Offers an Opportunity for Reflection and Prayer

Connectivity – a doublespeak word if there ever was one.

It is, in fact, dis-connectivity. Life through devices makes us not present in our immediate world and takes us outside of ourselves and into the world of entertainment, sports, social media, etc.

Recently a coordinated series of telescopes aimed at the heavens captured the first known image of a black hole. This is peculiar because a black hole by definition can’t be seen.

A black hole is kind of like Las Vegas. What happens there stays there.

The image shows a thick fiery ring which, depending on your imagination, looks to be either the entrance to Mordor or a Dunkin Donut.
