From today's first reading at Mass...



"Anyone who is so 'progressive' as not to remain in the teaching of the Christ does not have God, whoever remains in the teaching has the Father and the Son." - 2 John: 4-9

"Where the body is, there also the vultures will gather." - Today's Gospel,  Luke 17: 37

  2. It is interesting that in today's reading the word "progressive" has been put in place of "running ahead" in an older version.

  3. Mr. Terry: I think I will, in fact, put you into my formal will; not to scare you or anything...all will be be well provided for...my funeral Mass et. al... the Masses, etc... don't worry.
    But I can assure myself, that you dear friend, and friend of God, won't screw up everything at the last moment.
    Of that I am sure.
    Dammit.

  4. I noted the reading yesterday as well. Unfortunately, the people who really need to hear it probably did not.
