When I was offered this opportunity to blog here at Catholic Exchange, I was begged not to “get all pious” on y’all. It seems that whatever gifts I was given to serve the Kingdom lay more in the humor department and less in Theology, and these were the gifts that were being tapped to write here.
That’s fine. I love getting gifts. And if the giver is God Himself, I’m certainly not going to gripe because I got “funny” and not “spiritually astute”.
But all this means that on days like today, on days when even a moment’s reflection on the events of 2000 years ago can reduce grown folks to tears, what I have to offer runs the risk of being trivial, if not downright disrespectful.
