12 June 2016. A Point to Ponder…

00 Have Mercy on Me O God. 08.03

If the Gospel’s about anything, it’s about a God who meets us where we are, not where we ought to be.

Fr Robert Farrar Capon

Reflect on this whenever you hear loudmouth clergy issue thunderous claptrap from the ambo in re “purity” and “right conduct”… I’d say that the Church is right to offer oikonomia and that the “pure” are wrong in their akrivia. They want to “protect” the Church… I’d counter by saying that Our Lord Christ preferred the company of whores and tax-farmers to the company of priests and “religious”… do ponder that… moreover, do ponder who called for His death!
