Fr. Schall on Mercy

Fr. Schall on Mercy
"Mercy is a response to the repentant. It does not change the unrepentant. It often hardens them. Technically, mercy extends to sin of whatever kind or species. But mercy does not forgive. God in His mercy forgives. Mercy is contingent on the sinner’s acknowledgement that he is responsible for something objectively wrong in his acts or thoughts." (Fr. James V. Schall S. J.)

Sundays are for Beauty - Benny Goodman

"Sing, Sing, Sing" was written in 1936, by Louis Prima and first recorded by him with the New Orleans Gang in March, 1936. It became identified more with Gene Krupa and Benny Goodman over the years.

This has to be from the 40's when the Big Band Era was at its zenith. They were great days, and a band with Benny Goodman, Harry James, and Gene Krupa all playing in it was truly something to behold.

Have a Beautiful Sunday.
