2019-04-10 - Teaching


  1. I propose a scheme. Let's build a secret army and infiltrate every bad parish in the country, and teach them the Catechism and the Bible and things like that. If they kick us out, we'll shake the dust off our feet and move on. How's that?

    I wonder what a sunburst is.

  2. A sunburst can be a sudden, bright shining of the sun through a break in the clouds or a pattern made to look like a shining sun (this includes the weird, colorful splotches that you get when closing your eyes after being flashed with a bright light.

    I like that plan. How are you coming on the pamphlet for wayward priests/parishes?

    I had to laugh when I read what happened to David's envoys. A close shave, indeed!

    Isaiah three sounds like a prophecy of the current state of affairs in the Church. Phony leaders who oppress, real leaders who won't lead, everything in ruins, etc.

    I wonder why Simon of Cyrene's son are mentioned by name here. Perhaps the it was a "If you don't believe me, talk to these guys who were there" thing.

    And so we ourselves must first relearn the unique, Catholic way of doing things so that we may teach others. But what vexes me is that so many stop up their ears lest they hear Truth and yet refuse to stop agitating and join the local Episcopalian church, where there is no such thing as heresy. Of course I pray that they'll be open to Truth, but if they refuse, I wish they'd leave (and return after a true conversion, Deo volente).

  3. The note in my Bible about Simon of Cyrene mentioned that he probably would't have been named if he wasn't someone they all knew.
