WELCOME TO THE ACADEMY!

Welcome, Academicians and Jedi All!
As the "Assistant Headmaster" here at the cyber-/artificial-/pretend-reality called,
The Catholic Jedi Academy, I am indeed happy to welcome you to our humble apostolate.

We hope you will enjoy it and be enriched by it as another means of training in the Catholic Faith.

First, by way of an explanation of this blog, allow us to define the terms we use here:
  • THE JEDI: In the Star Wars fictional universe, the Jedi are an ancient monastic peacekeeping organization known for their observance of “the Force.”
  • THE JEDI ACADEMY: A fictional training establishment in Star Wars fiction.
  • AN ACADEMICIAN: A title denoting a person’s full membership in an art, literary, scientific or religious academy.
No, we are not baptizing George Lucas’ weird theosophical religion! No, we do not think that God is "the Force" or some other vague electromagnetic entity. We are borrowing the goofy imagery, which so many people – Catholics, too – know and understand. Images are powerful in our society. We decided to employ outlandish Star Wars imagery, but we eviscerate it with Catholic intelligence, wit and humor.

So, expect to see varied commentary here at the Academy -- on one thing, anything, everything. We hope to serve
Our Lord -- and you -- well!

We welcome your comments. And we encourage discussions among all Jedi Catholics in training at the Academy.
(Sorry: no extra credit for that!)


May God Bless This Apostolate!
May God Bless And Protect His Jedi!
