onward Christian facilitators

By Diogenes (articles ) | Mar 18, 2009

 We sang "Lift High the Cross" at Mass on Sunday. Unless I'm mistaken, the "hosts of God" who once combined in "conquering ranks" have now become "glorious ranks." No doubt that is to reassure everyone that we Christians aren't in the conquering business anymore. Is anyone out there really worried about being conquered by Christians?

Still, "glorious" doesn't sound quite right to me. I wonder whether we could combine in "vibrant" ranks.

Better yet, get rid of those "ranks" altogether. The image is far too military. I can foresee: "the hosts of God in dialogue combine."
