couldn't have said it better myself

By Diogenes (articles ) | Oct 04, 2007

Archbishop Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz has returned to Minsk, and Charter 97-- which, I admit, I don't read every day-- has the story with pictures.

"At the beginning of the mess archbishop Tadeush Kandrusevich was welcomed from the depth of the heart by Bishop Antoni Dzyamyanka. In the answer archbishop Tadeush expressed his pleasure of being again on the native ground, among the compatriots, - A.Amelchenya told. – In his speech the archbishop emphasized a role of believers in observing of the Divine words. For this purpose each believer should deepen his spirituality by reading the religious literature where the first place belongs to the foundation of our belief - the Bible.

Anyway the photos are clear.

    OK, I don't know why I smiled uncontrollably while reading this. I think it has something to do with that piano-playing maniac in my youth who had a friend in Pinsk. Anyway, these people surely have more in common with St. Paul than, for instance, Bp. Spong. And let us be thankful.

    If they thought that was a "mess," I'd hate to hear what they think of some of our "messes." But seriously, I'd be careful about reading too much into that translation. It's pretty clear the translator was a little over his or her head.

    Di, what’s that I see? Are those people kneeling to receive Holy Communion? Does the Vatican know about this?

    Anyone who loves Sacred Scripture is on the right path. God loved the world so much that He sent His Son (cf. John 3:16) and having the Bible is further proof of God's love for us. All 73 books of the Bible are there for us and I urge my fellow Catholics to love the Divine Word with a new fervency.
