A local branch of The Church [JCLDS] shares a building with a Catholic congregation, and they were, and I assume still are, holding joint potluck meal gatherings. Hopefully some Latter-day Saints will read the book and add discussion of it to the vibrant tapestry of their inter-community conversation.

And noting the title of the book "Jesus of Nazareth, Part Two: Holy WeekFrom the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection": While I was a missionary in the Netherlands my companion and I rented a room from a Catholic gentleman. A television program about Jesus was broadcast, probably during the Easter season, and we watched it, and when it was over I noted how much I had enjoyed it and he said that he had as well but then meekly noted historical inaccuracies: in particular he noted that the movie had portrayed a certain sequence of events in the final week of the Saviour but the actual sequence was given differently in the New Testament. I was very impressed that he knew the life of the mortal Messiah so well; far better than I did!

Everyone needs to do a better job of extending loving hands to others, no matter what the religious preference may be. I attended Mass w/ my FIL here in OR and a visiting priest from the SLC Diocese came for a visit. He preached a homily of love and tolerance to other faiths - notably reaching out to the Mormons and other Protestant churches, and other religions as well. My FIL and I just looked at each other and grinned. It was a special moment as we knew how tolerance and love could dwell in the same family.

The Pope condemns "Temple Aristocracy". Really?

Semantically IMO, its like blaming the powers that be for any Organized Religion.
