Watered-down Scripture readings

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Apr 01, 2003

We're at the height of the spring flaw. The melting snow is rolling down the hill-- right through the fieldstone walls of my basement. The sump pump is working all day. I have to keep checking the water level, to make sure the furnace isn't getting wet. Then I go to Mass, trying to keep my mind off the flooding, and what do I hear? The water is up to the prophet's knees-- no, his waist, and still rising. In the Gospel, some poor man wants to get into a pool.

Don't you think we could save these readings for some other time-- August, maybe-- and concentrate on the parched desert this week?
