Father Cantalamessa on Modesty

BTW, I just realized Father's surname means the table is singing :-)

ARTICLE
...During the dinner that Sabbath, Jesus taught two important things: one directed to those who were invited and the other to their host. To the host Jesus says (perhaps privately or only in the presence of his disciples): "When you give a dinner or a banquet, do not invite your friends or your brothers or your relatives or rich neighbors ..." This is what Jesus himself did when he invited the poor, the afflicted, the meek, the hungry, the persecuted -- the persons named in the beatitudes -- to the great banquet of the kingdom...

Would a better translation be "The singing table"?

God bless!

Modesty also applies to young boys and men.

I remember attending Mass oneday and the boy ahead of me was wearing a 'Satan Rules' T-Shirt with some horrible pic on it. I thought it inappropriate and wondered HOW the parents allowed it?

Interesting piece TY Esther:)
