I'm old enough to fit the crotchety-old-man stereotype: but don't think that's an excuse for ranting. Or grumbling.

Knowing What I Believe: and WhyKnowing what I wasn't going to write narrowed the possibilities, somewhat. But I still hadn't found a viable topic.
I looked at the readings for tomorrow, which include that bit starting with Numbers 11:25. I'm not writing about Moses, either: but that prophet's experience reminded me of the New Evangelization, and the upcoming Year of Faith; which I've posted about before, too. (July 22, 2012; June 22, 2012)
Happily, my salvation doesn't rely on how I feel at any particular moment. I depend on what one very special person did, two millennia back. And - yep, I've posted about that before, too. Fairly often. (March 11, 2012)
One idea about evangelization - new and otherwise - and I'm done with this post. I think one of the first priorities is to understand what I believe, and why. And that's another topic.
Now it's time for me to rest, and drink plenty of fluids.
