after Ignatius, Bonaventure

I found it odd to be sitting in an easy chair watching a fire the day after the fire in my neighborhood. But I did as I rested my ankle.
We had just finished touring the Hildreth Meiere exhibit at St. Bonaventure University, and as Mosaic Woman made some purchases, I got intrigued by this guy...
St. Francis, a granite sculpture
by Beniamino Benvenuto Bufano.
But as we toured the University enjoying the architecture, my mind became curious about St. Bonaventure. I knew nothing about the man. So as I sat in front of the fire, I wondered if those, who lost so much in the fire, would ever enjoy watching flames; and I decided that I would bring St. Bonaventure to Monday nights at Holy Trinity in Lansdale.
So I have been reading about his life, and I just finished reading the prologue to The Soul's Journey Into God . and I may be moving in a good direction. we will see.
By the way, the grand daughter of Hildreth Meiere showed up at this blog and suggested I take a look at this... a listing by state of where to see work by Hildreth

  1. Sounds like you're off on an adventure. Wanted you to know I replied to your comment at my site. It, for some reason, did not update the count under the post, but the reply is there...
