“Let us pray”
Though this was uploaded in 2012, a video of a four-year-old Vietnamese boy performing the Catholic Mass was rediscovered on Facebook this week. If you have attended Mass, you will be familiar with the procedure and more than that, you’ll be amazed at the fidelity with which this precious child celebrates the entire 18-minute sacrament of the Eucharist.
According to the boy’s father, little Thuan learned to celebrate Mass in English and Latin by watching daily Mass on EWTN, a global Catholic television, Catholic radio and Catholic news network that provides Catholic programming and news coverage from around the world both on cable and online. EWTN is an acronym for Eternal Word Television Network.
Life’s little mysteries
Keep calm and …
You’ve probably seen it posted on the Internet, perhaps even several times:
The ‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ poster was designed by the British Ministry of Information during the period 27 June – 6 July 1939. According to Wikipedia, it was produced as part of a series of three “Home Publicity” posters (the others read “Your Courage, Your Cheerfulness, Your Resolution Will Bring Us Victory” and “Freedom Is in Peril. Defend It With All Your Might”).
Each poster showed the slogan under a representation of a “Tudor Crown” (a symbol of the state).
The posters were intended to be distributed to strengthen morale in the event of a wartime disaster, such as mass bombing of major cities using high explosives and poison gas, which was widely expected within hours of an outbreak of war.
Dozens of variations on the “Keep Calm” meme have been created. Examples can be found here.

Do you remember the world globe that occupied your childhood classroom? Do they even still have globes in schoolrooms anymore?
Here’s a fascinating story about a young man who, upon deciding to give his father the perfect globe, ended up making it. And thus began one of the rarest businesses of all in this day of Google maps. Meet Bellerby & Co. Globemakers of London.
“After a two year search for a globe for my father’s 80th birthday present I was faced with a choice of a modern political globe (albeit frequently available with a generous dose of sepia colouring), very fragile expensive antique models, which you can’t really use on a daily basis or trying to make my own,” explains Peter Bellerby. “So the original plan, hatched in a pub in Kings Cross, was to make just two, one for Dad, one for me. It would probably take three, maybe four months and cost a few thousand pounds. After all how difficult can it be to make a ball and put a map on it?”
