Quote/s of the Day – 6 September – Friday of the Twenty-second week in Ordinary Time Year C, Gospel: Luke 5:33–39
“But new wine must be put
into fresh wineskins.”
What people don’t realise,
is how much Christianity costs.
They think faith is a big electric blanket,
when of course it is the cross.
Flannery O’Connor (1925-1964)
The Jesus of the Gospels
is surely not convenient for us.
The Jesus, who makes everything
okay for everyone,
is a phantom,
not a real figure…
Pope Benedict XVI
Take the crucifixion personally.
