asunder again

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 09, 2006

In today's first reading, taken from St. Paul's letter to the Galatians, in the jaunty contemporary translation that sounds just like the way you and I ordinarily speak:

Am I now currying favor with human beings or God?

Back home after Mass, I scanned the newspaper headlines and learned that politicians are currying favor with human beings.

It's disgraceful, isn't it? The party kingpins chieftains leaders facilitators want people to vote along partisan lines, rather than just voting for the best human being-- in, say, the race for Congresshumanbeing.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Why be bound by strict guidelines for interpretation? We need to be speaking to the people of today, in language they can understand. I submit the following: Am I now curry flavoring with human persons or God?
