Father Bernd Knüfer, S.J., offers you quiet space. Also Hatha-Yoga and Zen Meditation. Something to keep in mind if you happen to be passing through Leipzig in the near future: say, 1971.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Why do I get the strange sense that he worships the Egyptian goddess Isis? Or is he (Isis) a god? I don't remember my mythology. I hope I am not being too cruel.

    What, no bean bag chairs?

    Hatha-Yoga and Zen Meditation are in, the Spiritual exercises of Ignatius of Loyola are out. This is the Brave New World. The S. J. initials after a name means nothing nowadays, unless it means any stick is good to scourge Our Lord.

    That looks like several Modernist Orlando Churches. St. Mary's of Rockledge, Sts Peter and Paul, and especially the sacred space of Blessed Trinity on Anderson Road that Bishop Thomas Wenski dedicated saying it was a "tribute" to the faith of the people. The people there must be "spaced out." Sorry for the pun.

    I think I saw that in "Star Trek: The Motion Picture." It's V'Ger.

    There seems to be only one eye, so it must be Cyclops. I think the architect spent way too much time reading the "Odyssey" by Homer.

    That should be New Age Treacle

    Somehow New Treacle is worse in German even than in English.

    ...or the CBS eye?

  • Posted by: - Oct. 25, 2006 1:15 PM ET USA

    Is that supposed to be the eye of God?
