R.I.P. Mickey Rooney and John Pinette

We lost two great comedians this past weekend.

Mickey Rooney (1920-2014) worked in the entertainment industry for nearly 90 years!  I’ll always remember him as the kind-hearted lighthouse owner who, along with his daughter, takes in a runaway orphan who just happens to have an invisible green dragon in the 1977 Disney film Pete’s Dragon.  Rooney’s character, Lampie, was one of the few people in the film who saw the dragon, but no one would believe him because he was a fall-down drunk.  Rooney brought genuine warmth to his character and sang in many of the film’s musical numbers.  He was a versatile actor who had a long, full life.

John Pinette (1964 – 2014), unfortunately, died young at the age of 50 this weekend from a pulmonary embolism.  Like fellow clean comedian Jim Gaffigan, John Pinette’s routine focused on his love of food, his struggles with dieting, and his aversion to exercise.  His self-deprecating humor, talented singing voice, and tendency to “lose his cherub-like demeanor” on stage was a staple in his stand-up.  He was one of the funniest comedians I have ever had the pleasure of seeing and will be sorely missed.

Check out some of Mickey Rooney’s movies (Night at the Museum) and John Pinette’s comedy routines (Still Hungry, I’m Starvin!) at the Gabriele Library today.

Lighthouse Catholic Media Kiosk

This semester, Campus Ministry is proud to present to our campus a new opportunity for continued learning and growth in our Christian Faith. located on the lower level of the library just outside of the Media Classroom is a kiosk of materials from Lighthouse Catholic Media and Stewardship: A Mission of Faith. This kiosk is loaded with contemporary CDs, books, pamphlets and booklets that will inform, inspire and engage you in thought regarding issues of our day and matters of Christian Faith. Whether you are a student, member of our staff, faculty or administration, this kiosk has something that will interest you and that can be a blessing for your families and friends. Lighthouse Catholic Media offers an opportunity for you to receive downloads of dynamic presentations on the faith. I encourage you to check out this new resource on campus and make use of it.  It has the potential of blessing you in countless ways.

Sincerely,

Fr. Rogers
