Where the Rubber Hits the Road passes another milestone

Keep 'er between the ditches folks!
It almost slipped past me without my noticing! I pay about as much attention to the stats that this blog generates as I do the odometer in my car - which is to say occasionally at best. But something made me check this morning and what did I discover... but that the blog has passed the 500,000 visit to the site!

It's heart warming to realize that it is of interest to so many folks. It's my pledge to do all I can to keep it as a place where you can find articles from a variety of perspectives on the questions facing the Church today for your reflection, edification, and comment.

So thank you to everyone who visits this blog. May it help you keep firmly attached to the road of faith in your life... or at least serve to keep you from crashing into the ditches our faith calls us to avoid lest we fail to complete our journey to God.


  1. Great job! And congratulations, while I am not of your faith group, I appreciate your openness and honesty. We need more of you

The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join

The May 2010 Euthanasia Prevention Coalition Newsletter can now be found at: Bill C-384 was soundly defeated by a vote of 228 to 59. Check how the Members of Parliament voted at: On June 5, 2010, we are co-hosting the US/Canda Push-Back Seminar at the Radisson Gateway Hotel at the Seattle/Tacoma Airport.
