9-12-21 Every Sunday is a cause for writing. The gospel is a parable about not working on Sunday - o heck, I do that. To my relief, or is it relief, the story becomes another parable about the man who exalts himself. A man at a wedding reception takes a place at the table in front, and the host tells him to move for someone more important. JC says, “…every one that exalteth himself shall be humiliated, and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.” Once I showed my mother my resume. It boasted of some success. She said, “Take it out.” The Latin word hydropicus means dropsy. It's a very funny word, dropsy, but not a funny condition - edema. The English translation is an example of fine writing.
