Law, culture, and Catholicism...up in smoke!

A Special Gift for The Saccharine Posters

For all those who come to this blog and state (or think): "I-am-called-to-share-my-unique-gifts-with-others-on-this-blog-who-need-to-be-more-charitable-so-I'm-graced-to-be-here-to-show-you-the-way."

A vignette that aptly summarizes my attitude:

There is a story about him which every English Catholic knows but which might be new to you. He was standing bolt upright when the synchronized congregation were kneeling down, and a verger who took him for a Protestant who did not know the form tapped him on the shoulder and said, "Excuse me, sir, you ought to kneel at this point." "Go to Hell", replied Belloc. "Sorry, sir", said the verger, "I didn't know you were a Catholic."

We are an Easter People.
