Aside

Lets see, lets guess. Today I read about the age of Aquarius versus the age of Pisces. Yesfish1 bp (2)terday, the Catholics celebrated a church founded before Constantine. Old church, much history. (Yesterday) The age of Pisces. (Today) , the age of Aquarius. One gains that name from a Broadway play.1960, 1970? I cant remember. Nixon, Ford? Was Andy Warhol on the scene? Pop culture, what’s next. Aquarius versus Pisces, yes it is a battle. Yes, the New Age has the numbers: but they are “fools, idiots, morons exploiting others for their own capitalistic gain.” They are the chaff that disappears with the wind. But still within that wind contains a storm and that storm is the one weathered today.  Yesterday celebrated an ancient church, today an old Pope named Leo. An ancient church building, an old pope that confronted the Huns. The Huns are celebrated by the Goths of  Heavy Metal of the Stage: but how many of them have been pierced (by a lance not a needle), or skewered or beheaded or tortured or brutalized in the true sense of Attila’s warfare, not an electrified three chord song? Leo confronted them, and defeated them. And what of Studio 54? The Lateran Basilica in Rome still stands.

He summoned him and said,
‘What is this I hear about you?
Prepare a full account of your stewardship,
because you can no longer be my steward.’
The steward said to himself, ‘What shall I do,
now that my master is taking the position of steward away from me?
I am not strong enough to dig and I am ashamed to beg.

Lk 16:1-8
