Spanish class desayuno

Spanish class breakfast @ Brisa de EspanaSpanish class breakfast @ Brisa de EspanaSPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — today, we had class AND breakfast at Brisa de Espana, a local Spanish restaurant.  The food was great.  I had scrambled eggs with Spanish sausage an Arizona ice tea! 

We’re finishing our last chapter 18 with Si (if) clauses and a confusing summary of the use of the subjunctive (ALL OF THEM).  — I can’t say I was paying all my attention to our bookwork, cuz the food was delicioso!

Spanish class dinner

In order to catch-up on some missing Spanish, our professor invited us to his home this evening for dinner and a study session.  Our hosts were generous beyond words with a delicious steak dinner.  We also brought some desert (very rich).  Discussions were about everything … pet dogs … pink glass cleaner … our Easter break … Narnia (movie & book) … conditional tenses … past perfect subjunctives … que haria Jesus (WWJD) … million dollar dreams … dwarfs … poetry … and more.   — a great evening.

Eucharistic music video + simplicity

March 27, 2008 2 comments

I found this Eucharistic music video on You Tube.  It’s a collage of pictures arranged to music by a New Age band called Era (chant of an imaginary language close to Latin).  This tune is called “The Mass,” I think …

David Crowder Band – “O Praise Him” (song)

Since morning prayer, I’ve been singing “O praise Him, Alleluia …” and tried to find a video with it, but found another favorite by David Crowder Band called “O Praise Him” with a simple, but interesting video.  Here it is:

MASS – (Fr Santos) — “the sabbath was made for man , not man for the sabbath”

SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — chapter 15 on haber + past participles.  If we stay on schedule this semester, we’ll try to read the Spanish version of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

New Testament class @ St John Vianney College Seminary, Miami, FLNEW TESTAMENT – (Fr Michael) — today, we started the Synoptic Gospels (reviewed side-by-side syn-optically), more specifically the Gospels of Mark & Matthew.  Even though Mark is the shortest gospel book, 80% of Mark’s verses are reproduced in Matthew while 65% is in Luke.  There may also exist a hypothetical source “Q” that scholars propose to explain other similarities between Matthew & Luke not borrowed from Mark. 

CULTURAL FOOD NIGHT — today was Columbian food night with a small army of cooks creating some great food.

Multiplication of 5 loaves & 2 fishMASS – (Fr Santos) — [half sandwich Christmas giftJesus’ multiplication of 5 loaves & 2 fish.  A supernatural miracle by Jesus … or PERHAPS a selfish crowd was moved to give from their personal stash.  — Maybe?  Just as fantastic of a miracle. Perhaps.

SPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — this is the second semester (the second part – I didn’t fail!) of Spanish 2.  Among other things, we went over the Lord’s Prayer in Spanish (especially since the version in the Spanish Liturgy of the Hours books is completely different):  [Lord’s Prayer in various languages]

President Bush praying (in Spanish)Padre nuestro, que estás en el cielo
Santificado sea Tu nombre;
Venga a nosotros Tu reino.
Hágase Tu voluntad
En la tierra como en el cielo.
Danos hoy nuestro pan de cada día.
Perdona nuestras ofensas,
Como también nosotros perdonamos a los que nos ofenden.
Y no nos dejes caer en la tentación;
líbranos de todo mal.
[Porque Tuyo es el Reino, el Poder y la Gloria por siempre, Señor. Amén.]
