  1. “And it shows that some people don’t care about saving souls.”
    Ain’t that the truth! Unfortunately a lot of them are supposed to be in that business, so to speak. I sometimes imagine a squadron of souls, in miters and carrying crooks, standing before Christ, who says “You had one job.”

    ….that my brain is now doing a spin on deliberately brutal translation that would say “butt-f’ers and f’ers of butts” does not help matters.

  3. This is why I like the Douay-Rheims translation. You can find it online here: Strongly recommend getting it in hard copy, btw.
