I'm disappointed that the Holy Father has no words specifically for Christians or Catholics in Japan, that in spite of the theme for the visit of "Protect All Life" no mention is made of abortion, and that he has the impression that religious dialogue is common in Japan.
Trying to explain to someone why I'm here at this #SDF instance on Mastodon. I learned about it on bboard, so naturally I'm here rather than some other instance. What is it that makes #SDF Mastodoners a cohesive grouop, if anything? Are most of us #SDF people, so naturally have that weird thing in common? (I use "weird" the most loving way, of course)
Screw motivation, what you need is discipline.
"If you want to get anything done, there are two basic ways to get yourself to do it.
The first, more popular and devastatingly wrong option is to try to motivate yourself.
The second, somewhat unpopular and entirely correct choice is to cultivate discipline"
"Discipline ... separates outwards functioning from moods and feelings and thereby ironically circumvents the problem by consistently improving them."
You've probably heard about the 80/20 rule, also known as the Pareto principle. Perhaps the title lead you to believe that this article was a misunderstanding. I admit that I went for an arresting title; perhaps a more proper name is the 80x24 rule.
The exact numbers can vary, but I've found a maximum method size of 80x24 characters to work well for C#."

#catholic Reading Pascendi Dominici Gregis written by Pope Saint Pius X in 1907. It's a powerful condemnation of Modernism, "the synthesis of all heresies." In the conclusion, the Saint directs patriarchs, primates, archbishops, bishops, and other local ordinaries to exclude supporters of Modernism from directorships and professorships in seminaries and Catholic Universities, and to remove any from such positions they currently hold. What happened with that?
#TheShining Dies Irae ... Day of wrath.
#catholic Happy All Souls Day. I got to start the day with Mass and end it with Adoration. Saints in heaven, please pray for the Pope and for the Church. Dominus vobiscum.
