2 Tim 2:14
Remind people of these things and charge them before God to stop disputing about words. This serves no useful purpose since it harms those who listen.

2 Tim 2:23
Avoid foolish and ignorant debates, for you know that they breed quarrels.

Someone had a scathingly brilliant idea. Now we get to know a little tidbit about each of the priests in our diocese. Absolutely brilliant. Kudos to whomever came up with this one!

Father Tom Quinlivan, a priest smart enough not to take in his relatives, but who is willing to take in the money of neighboring parishes that have closed.

John Paul II himself once said: “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel” (Wall Street Journal, Nov. 9, 1978).

This leads to the mistaken notion today that women can be leaders of men, but this is a perversion of what God created; a reversal of the distinct roles he ordained from the very beginning of creation. I’m reminded of the warning that Isaiah proclaimed when Israel reached the height of its apostasy:“O my people…women rule over them”(Is 3:12).

Eddie G. A man who isn't afraid of wearing multiple patterns and lots of bling. One who is able to spend millions upon millions and then free enough to walk away from the parish be reconfigured/disfigured and still hold his head high. A man who has made an artform from gossip at least according to a polish priest or two.

1 Cor 12:31-13:13
Strive eagerly for the greatest spiritual gifts. But I shall show you a still more excellent way. If I speak in human and angelic tongues but do not have love, I am a resounding gong or a clashing cymbal. And if I have the gift of prophecy and comprehend all mysteries and all knowledge; if I have all faith so as to move mountains but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away everything I own, and if I hand my body over so that I may boast but do not have love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous,(love) is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood over injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails. If there are prophecies, they will be brought to nothing; if tongues, they will cease; if knowledge, it will be brought to nothing. For we know partially and we prophesy partially, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.... So faith, hope, love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
perfect you
