"As an assembly of the faithful around the altar, the Eucharist is a reconstitution of our ancient home in paradise. As a full communion of the faithful with God and with each other, it perfects that home and unites humanity entirely, making it the body of God. As a sacrifice and an offering it creates once again the relationship that man had with creation before the fall and at the same time completes it. The crea­tures which constitute man’s wealth are offered by him with love to God. Thus creation becomes the means by which man is united with God. Matter comes to be filled with the Spirit, and the spiritual life functions within the Eucharist unhindered and in its true fullness. All these things take place because the Eucharist is Christ, who constitutes the past, present and future of the saints, which is the real past, present and future of the world."

Corvids are the only animals intelligent enough to recognize ‘cool’ behaviour. Here we see a crow working to impress its peers, and largely succeeding. Good for you, crow.

That commentary.

why is “Gospel” so smal
why is “Reason” bigger than “Eucharist”
why is “coffee” even on here

Why is “Reason” bigger than “Tradition”

Can we redesign this?  I also really hate that words are starting with capital letters when this has different size fonts — it needs to all be upper-case or all lower-case.  Also: does it really need “inclusive” and "inclusivity"? "Welcoming" and "welcome"? There are so many problems here, design-wise and theologically.

Also, can anyone see the word “Jesus”?

Of course not.  But I do see “Bishop Spong”

It must take a lot of practice to suck at marketing this bad.

i will never understand why there isn’t a basic philosophy course required for high school students to graduate. it just baffles me how many people not only refuse to think critically, but are actually afraid of doing so, and if school is supposed to intellectually prepare you to be a responsible citizen that seems like a massive oversight
