Why? You ask. In Zzzz's own words "They disseminated something about me that isn’t true. This isn’t a huge deal, (But I bet he makes it one) but it bears some explanation because I really like the topic."
In a recent post about his Kansas City Bender, the ever good Father rather proudly related that he wore an amice that once belonged of the Cure of Ars, Saint John Vianney. I really didn't take much notice of this (though I do think it is very cool, and I'm a little bit jealous) until one of my three loyal readers mentioned it, and another shared with me a quote attributed to the saint that kind of sort of fits the situation.
"Are people bad-mouthing you? They're telling the truth. Are they singing your praise? They're making fun of you."
-Cure' of Ars
What else can we say?
People correct me all the time. I miss the mark at least fifty percent of the time, so they are right in doing so. This is part of the reason that I allow open comments. We all need an ego check from time to time.
Speaking of ego checks, its seems that Deacon Bill Ditewig, Ph.D. is giving one to our brother Father Zzzz. Take note of the comments and Deacon Bill's follow up.
