The popularity of Thomas’ Worst Vocations Poster Ever post this AM reminded me of this ad I snapped from my local paper a week or so ago.
This ad for “church” made me long for the wit of the late Fr. Richard John Neuhaus. No doubt he would have had the perfect comeback to their slogan. Ironically the church website promotes a regular event titled “First Things First,” which I am guessing does not include the reading of selections from the respected journal Neuhaus founded.
Presumably they still retain the 2000 year-old belief in Jesus Christ. If so, apparently some of their beliefs are, well yes, old. So I assume they are referring to those burdensome time-honored moral teachings. Too bad. The full package is so much more satisfying.
“Late have I loved you.
O Beauty, ever ancient, ever new.
Late have I loved you!”
