Whimpered like a pedant
By Phil Lawler ( bio - articles - email ) | Oct 27, 2005
Fr. Rutler, the genial pastor of Our Saviour in Manhattan, writes in his weekly bulletin:
Have I made a good confession recently as the heir of a kingdom, or have I whimpered like a pedant that I just want to feel good about myself? Have I given God sacrificially of my money in tribute to his glory, or have I tipped him with a few dollars as though he were a waiter and I a clerk on a cheap holiday? We are not to live as petit bourgeois in an adequate but dull acre outside the Heavenly City.
