A clever post today on A Penitent Blogger, timely for tonight's crowning of the new American Idol on TV: St. Paul's sermon at the Areopagus imagined as being critiqued by 3 judges whose comments are familiar ("kinda pitchy for me"). And yet it bore fruit. Penitens concludes:
"An important point to remember is what underlies St. Paul's words to the Athenians: that even the most highly educated and intellectually gifted people may be, on some deep level, essentially ignorant of the true content of faith.
"We need to be careful, to develop all the insight we can, to seek the grace from God we need, and to be unafraid in speaking the truth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
