Book Meme

Clayton tagged me. I'm going to tag the gang at HMS Weblog. Here are the rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book ( of at least 123 pages).
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people.

The closest book was Das Neue Testament: Eiheitsuebersetzung der heligen Schrift. The quote is from Mark 17:19
Weh aber den Frauen, die in jenen Tagen schwanger sind oder ein Kind stillen. Beten darum, dass dies alles nicht im Winter eintritt. Denn jene Tage werden eine Not bringen, wie es noch nie eine gegeben hat, seit Gott die Welt erschuf, und wie es auch keine mehr geben wird.
In English:
And alas for those who are with child and for those who give suck in those days! Pray that it may not happen in winter. For in those days there will be such tribulation as has not been from the beginning of the creation which God created until now, and never will be.
I tag the gang at HMS.

My Review of Fr. Schall's Book

You can find my review of Fr. James V. Schall, S.J.'s A Student's Guide to Liberal Learning here. Scroll to the very bottom. It takes a long time to load. The rest of the issue is good as well. A related piece is the lead article by James Hitchcock called "Rehearsal for Deconstruction" about Christopher Dawson.
