A book is a literary compass that has the potential to direct our thoughts and actions:

"Everything we read stimulates our mind to think, and what we think determines what we desire, and desires are the seedbed of our actions. Given this iron law of human nature--from reading to thinking, to desiring, to acting--we are shaping our destiny by the ideas we choose to have enter our minds through print." - Fr. John Hardon, S.J., The Catholic Lifetime Reading Plan

Welcome to my own personal exploration of life through reading the great books of the world.

19 Story Cross Dominates Landscape

Check out this huge cross in Groom, Texas. It was built by Steve Thomas and a group of 250 welders. Here are a few facts about the cross from this web page:
  • It stands 19 stories tall.
  • The arms stretch 110 ten feet across.
  • It's made of welded steel covered with steel sheeting.
  • There are no guide wires or extra supports keeping it up.
Be sure to see the full-page description of the cross, and the beautiful pictures of the cross at night.
