ineffable

By Diogenes (articles ) | Dec 09, 2008

 According to the official Vatican translation, in a message about the Christian heritage of European culture, Pope Benedict XVI encouraged reflection upon "the ancient roots in which abundant lymph has flowed over the course of the centuries."

Lymph? 

Hey, look: I know it was a long weekend. Let's cut the poor translators a bit of slack.

But if you have "ancient roots" through which "abundant lymph" is flowing, please see a doctor, quickly.
