No matter what your feels are about religion, it's hard not to be charmed by a blessing of the animals. This one happened this week at the the Cathedral of the Incarnation, part of the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. Watch for little Butterscotch. I love him. (He was a good boy! He didn't bite the bishop!)

When the first video of Ray Rice dragging his then-fiancee off a casino elevator like a slab of meat appeared, I thought, "God bless TMZ. " With TMZ's release of video today showing him punching Janay Palmer twice and knocking her to the floor, I say, God bless TMZ again and again. You can read what I wrote in February here under the headline: "Ray Rice and how TMZ counters the great American hype machine. " TMZ did the job the mainstream sports media failed to do in showing us the ugliness of this incident.

Despite - or perhaps because of - the death of sophomore midfielder Matthew Gabriel on Monday morning, Goucher will play host to Landmark Conference rival Catholic at Gopher Stadium in Towson on Thursday. Coach Brian Kelly said the Gabriel family has encouraged the team to play the game as originally scheduled. "They're so strong in their faith that they believe there's a plan for Matthew and that he is with God now,” Kelly said on Tuesday night. “Their words to me directly were, 'Matthew would have wanted you to continue to play the game that he loved, and he would want his teammates to continue to play the game that he loved and to continue to do what you do, and that's life, to live life because he lived his life to the fullest.' He's always been a selfless human being, and he will be terribly missed physically.

Ron Smith's recent column concerning his cancer diagnosis was perhaps his most powerful ("Death, I do not fear you; I am just not ready to go," Oct. 21). When I read his doctor's quote, "Fate has something else in store for you," I immediately thought it wasn't the pancreatic cancer. I believe God granted a 20-plus year extension of his life so that he might have a positive impact on the lives of others. From the outpouring of love, it is evident that he has used that time well.

When Ray Rice set a season low with just eight carries in a 12-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on Oct. 4 and then surpassed that with just five rushing attempts in a 22-17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 13, much teeth-gnashing ensued. Even the Ravens running back wasn't happy with his involvement in the offense at those times, but with three more contests in the regular season and what appears to be at least one game in the postseason, Rice is beginning to think that the reduced workload is beginning to pay dividends now. “I don't want to say I saved my best for last, but I think the fact that I wasn't getting the carries early on was a blessing in disguise for me right now,” he said Wednesday.

Four-year-old Ila Yslande Ann Hubner waddled into the Frederick County Courthouse the other morning, arms flailing, legs kicking this way and that, babbling about the Cookie Monster. "Everything is 'Cookie Monster,' I don't know why," said Christie Hubner. A year ago, when Hubner and her husband, Dave, took custody of Ila, the child knew nothing about the Cookie Monster. She was an orphan in Port-au-Prince, Haiti — frightened, hungry and stranded in the rubble after last January's massive earthquake.

In the perfect NFL world - at least from a marketing standpoint - every one of the 32 teams would still be in playoff contention in mid-December. The only question is whether there comes a point when parity becomes parody. I think we have our answer. The Ravens fell to 4-6 with their weather-delayed, overtime loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday in what was cast as another in a long series of must-win games which we have come to find out they really didn't have to win. Turns out, the Ravens are in pretty good shape in the race for the second AFC wild-card spot when you consider that there are only two teams other than the co-leaders in the West that are as good as 5-5. The Ravens play one of them (the New York Jets)

The Assistance Center of Towson Churches (ACTC), adjacent to the Towson Calvary Baptist Church, is getting more than a few upgrades to the one-car garage structure that was built in the 1930s. Members comprising the "Builders Squad," more than 30 volunteers representing numerous churches in the greater Towson area and ranging in age from 21 to 81 years, have made plans to insert a time capsule behind the drywall of the expansion. The capsule, a project initiated by Bob Hoyt, contains photos of the crew, highlights of the construction project, and other relevant artifacts.

During her sophomore year at Oakland Mills High School, Alexa Kanakry spent an hour every Thursday sorting food and filling 16 backpacks for Blessings in a Backpack, a nonprofit that provides food for elementary-age students during the school year. Now a junior, Kanakry was back in action last Thursday, topping that previous effort with another 35 backpacks the school's program provides each week. "It might take a little longer this year," Kanakry, 16, said. "I love it. Knowing that we are helping these kids that don't always have food ... it's not that hard to do once a week and fit it in. " Many of the kids who receive the backpacks take advantage of free and reduced-priced meals at schools during the week, but the backpack initiative is designed to keep them supplied over the weekends, when they might have little or nothing.

Who says a proposed elementary school would ruin Mays Chapel if it is built there? Adding a school would be an educational and recreational blessing for the neighborhood. The current concrete jungle of condos, apartments, shopping center, medical building and swimming pool already holds the award for "ruining" what was once a bucolic woodland. The planned unit development on the west side of I-83 was a painful sacrifice that introduced commercial entities where they never belonged.

After a traditional Christian service Sunday, the Rev. Terrence Alspaugh stepped outside his historic stone church and faced a collection of motorcycles. The congregation of this little church by the Baltimore County woods formed a circle. They bowed their heads. "May your bike be free from mechanical failure," Alspaugh prayed. Wait. What? Alspaugh, pastor at Granite Presbyterian Church in Woodstock, was holding a service he calls the Biker Blessings & Bread Sunday, an effort to minister to motorcyclists nearby and throughout the state.

When Peter Athens joined the rest of Towson's starting offense in the huddle for the Aug. 29 win over Connecticut, it culminated a five-year period for the quarterback that included knee surgery, one season on the men's lacrosse team and almost deciding to walk away from football. Making his first start since Oct. 1, 2011, was a surreal and modest moment for the 6-foot-1, 220-pound fifth-year senior. "I didn't anticipate anything," Athens said of his expectations. "I came in for my fifth year hoping that I could start.
