Asian Christians can save Christianity from Christendom

Father William Grimm MM
 
I was 16 years old when a teacher had the class read works that were not in the high school curriculum. Among them were St. Augustine’s Confessions and The Song of Roland, an anonymous French epic that dates from the 11th century, or even earlier.

The scriptures are meant to bite

When I was a lad, we had a family bible. There were pages in the back where my mother entered dates of births, baptisms and confirmations. There were pictures. Though it was obviously a book—in fact that’s what the word bible means—I have no recollection that I or anyone else in the family ever read it.
 
We were good Catholics, but bible reading was something Protestants did.
