About this blogger:
"Father Isaac Jogues was truly a martyr before God, rendering witness to Heaven and earth that he valued the Faith and the propagation of the gospel more highly than his own life, and losing it in the dangers into which, with full consciousness, he cast himself for Jesus Christ…" — Fr. Jerome Lalemant (writing in 1647)

The soul is distracted from that which is sung by a chant that is employed for the purpose of giving pleasure. But if the singer chant for the sake of devotion, he pays more attention to what he says, both because he lingers more thereon, and because, as Augustine remarks (Confess. x, 33), “each affection of our spirit, according to its variety, has its own appropriate measure in the voice, and singing, by some hidden correspondence wherewith it is stirred.” The same applies to the hearers, for even if some of them understand not what is sung, yet they understand why it is sung, namely, for God's glory: and this is enough to arouse their devotion.
— St. Thomas Aquinas
A Warm Welcome to Dr. Ronda Chervin!
published 16 February 2011 by Corpus Christi Watershed

Corpus Christi Watershed welcomes Dr. Ronda Chervin, who will be sharing her daily thoughts and reflections (by means of blog entries) on our website. Here is a message from Dr. Ronda:

I am delighted to be part of the Watershed Corpus Christi website as a new blogger. Many years ago I was part of the group that thought of this idea.

Every day I get ideas I would love to share with kindred souls. I hope you will think these come from the Holy Spirit with the least admixture of error of any kind. We shall see. If you wish to add comments I will glance at them, but there is no way I can respond if I want to keep my full-time teaching job and complete my many projects. However, if you go to my personal website, rondachervin.com, and want to write to me about some specific ideas on the audios and free e-books, or about in print books listed there, I will try to answer you as soon as possible. Let us pray for one another.

Please read a Dr. Ronda’s biography. For books, audio, DVD’s, and more, please visit rondachervin.com.
