    The Pope condemns "Temple Aristocracy". Really?

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

    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.

    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!
