So long, God be with you, adios, adieu, ciao.

Many years ago, I heard that whenever Hollywood wanted to increase television or movie viewership, they added a cute pet to the script.  Well, I certainly believe that. 
There is, also, the old philosophical question about whether a tree falling in a forest makes any noise if there is no one there to hear it?  You are now, probably, asking where in the world I am going with this?

I am very grateful to those of you who have been reading these blogs since I started last August.  It was my goal to provoke you to think about various issues that we deal with in our lives and to get you to examine them from varying viewpoints especially our Christian Catholic point of view.

Over time, the numbers of readers of this blog stayed at a low but not growing readership.  Then, on the Queen of Peace website, I posted a photo of the cat who hung around our station for a while and called it our guardian angel cat.  
Well, that drew lots of viewers and readers but the numbers for the blog stayed low.  I do like to think, however, the quality of readers was exceptionally high and bright!  However, without the hoped for increase of readership for these blogs, the return for the effort just does not make practical sense.  So, this is the last one here. 

However, I am very grateful to those of you who have been readers and to those who have, also, made comments.  I want, also, to thank Tom Moran, the station manager, who has found and attached his really insightful and clever graphics for each blog.  He has a special talent for getting graphics that cut to the core of the issues.  So, as I leave, I leave with big THANKS to you all.

Keep the faith, keep reading and keep thinking!

Let the light of our Lord shine upon you!

Ray Makowski, Co-Founder, Director and Secretary-Treasurer


  1. It is with sadness that I read this is your last blog, Ray. It has been a fascinating, informative, and thought-provoking journey that we have taken with you, so very worthwhile. My hope is that after a hiatus you will return here again to share your thoughts and comments. Those who have missed your blog deserve a second chance. Hopefully, next time your audience will increase to the level it deserves. God bless.

  2. I miss seeing you Ray. God Bless. There's always email.
