Really good numbers to see  

Denver Bible school has a record enrollment
The Denver Biblical School, now in its 24th year of existence, hit record enrollment this year with 648 students enrolled in the 4-year program--311 of whom are starting their first year.

Tim Gray, the program's director told the Denver Catholic Register that "We have a high-quality program...The teachers are dynamic and unique...The program", he said, "not only makes the Bible come alive, but makes it relevant to the lives of people."

Rather than taking a theme based, or piece by piece approach to the scriptures, students travel through every book of the Bible, looking at their historical context and significance, and seeking to understand how the Word is still active today. Source
I became aware of this school when Tim Gray left his position at Christendom College to take over as the director of the program in Denver. I knew that it must be good program if he was going to head it up. I have really appreciated his work in Biblical studies which can be seen on several programs on EWTN. Also, I relied heavily on his book Mission of the Messiah for a Bible study which I led on the Gospel of Luke.

It is really good to see this level of interest and enthusiasm being expressed by Catholics for Scripture. I believe that the school is simply tapping into the hunger that many Catholics have for deepening their faith and, in particular, understanding Scripture. This news demonstrates that apostolates like the Denver Biblical School are doing a great job of addressing the desire and the need Catholics have for understanding the most Catholic of all books--the Bible.

Read your question about natural methods of family planning in India. This was at Amy Welborn's blog. I know of one, Pumpkin Seeds!!!
Dont know if it works but I have heard about it India.
I was also told there are various other natural methods that are effective. I dont know what they are though.

Pumpkins seeds? In College, I had teammates use them to help pass drug tests for marijuana. It is nice to know they are versitle.

Perhaps these are reasons that pumpkins are associated with the American Thanksgiving Holiday...

Rishi Gajria,

Well, actually I was wondering if the Indian government was promoting some version of Natural Family Planning. I have done some more searching, but I have not seen any news items related to the reported campaign.

Kevin,

Good to hear from you. Sounds like you have been busy with your internship. Hope that is going well. Here is a prayer for your posting more often on your blog.
