We received many requests to post the text of the prayer to St. Isidore that the Catholic Weekend crew prayed before beginning their recording of Episode 200. Below you will find the text of the prayer with thanks to Tom Pringle, who got this prayer from Father Z. (Tom had distributed some really nice prayer cards at the Boston CNMC that had a picture of St. Isidore on one side and this prayer on the other side.)

Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Thine image and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor, during our journeys through the Internet we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Hi Folks,
    I saw something in the paper today that might interest you.
    When I saw the article I was reminded of one of Jeff’s Catholic Pilot episodes.
    It seems the the highest price ever paid at auction for an American artist’s work was the recent sale of Norman Rockwell’s ” Saying Grace”. Also sold for tidy sums were “The Gossips,” and “Walking to Church,”
