reading of the day

I read current events about my brothers and sisters in the other catholic faiths and try not to comment overmuch.  That said, the onslaught of priests being silenced, nuns under 'reform', loyalty oaths and laity quietly bemoaning the status quo sits in interesting juxtaposition with today's reading.

"Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the approval of men rather than the approval of God." (John 12:42-43)

Recall that, in context, the 'rulers' are the jewish leaders (Sanhedrin, Rabbis and the ilk).

The first Eucharist was celebrated by a layman and shared with a dozen unbaptized sinners. 

The Body of Christ predates the prelates of Rome, Constantinople or Lambeth.

I am not saying that church (of whatever faith) isn't without value, but never forget who you work for.

Just sayin.
