Birthday Surprises

Monday was my 31st Birthday. I don't feel a year older but the calendar says I am. So be it.

My folks were very generous with the Amazon list this year. They surprised me with the expensive set of the Cantena Aurea from Baronius Press. They are really beautiful books and I'm thrilled to have this commentary set on my shelf now. They also got me the Faith of the Early Fathers Set by Jurgens. Deo Gratias!

Birthday Wishes Matt!

I'm delighted that you received the (really wonderful) gift of Jurgen's Early Fathers set. They're proudly sitting on my bookshelf at home!

That Cantena Aurea reprint does look great, perhaps I should add it to my wishlist for Christmas. It would be nice if they sold the volumes individually or in pairs (it's a little steep, not for what it is or the quality, just for a grad student on a small budget).

Hey Patrick,

As soon as I can, I'll be posting photos of the Cantena with some thoughts. I'm swamped at the moment, preparing for my new teaching job. But I'll do what I can.
