Burning Coals Look what just arrived by special delivery! “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.” Romans 12:20 I have been head coal heaped. (Thanks Fr.Z!) Get yours here.

However, I think you would run the risk of being charged with attempted homocide if you did that. jedesto February 16, 2009 at 8:36 pmLog in to Reply “…by special delivery.” My word! How singular to be so “in” with the likes of Fr Z!!BTW, can you reveal for us ignorati the origin of his black and red thing?jedesto Fr Longenecker February 16, 2009 at 10:34 pmLog in to Reply Say the Black Do the Red refers to the Sacramentary–the book the priest uses to say Mass. The words for the Mass are printed in black. The rubrics (what the priest should do) are printed in red ink.Say the Black Do the Red means: Don’t be creative and wacky with the Mass. Don’t make up your own prayers and don’t ‘do your own thing’ with liturgical dance, special ‘meaningful’ gestures etc etc. MaryW February 16, 2009 at 10:50 pmLog in to Reply “Don’t be creative and wacky with the Mass.” AMEN. By the way Father L, I like the Father’s take on the clothing war between you and Father Z over at his blog Owl of the Remove. Sorry, I’d provide a link if I was PC savvy.

TMB February 17, 2009 at 1:26 pmLog in to Reply Father L.,I don’t want a Fr. Z mug…I want a Fr. L mug!! One with some appropriate Longeneckerism emblazoned upon it. Where can I get one? 🙂 Rachel Gray February 17, 2009 at 7:00 pmLog in to Reply Here’s the post MaryW mentioned. I think it’s the best take yet. :)We could have mugs saying “A person is most often right in what he affirms and wrong in what he denies.” :)I never did knew if the coal-heaping was a good thing for your enemy or not. There seem to be different interpretations. jedesto February 18, 2009 at 12:35 amLog in to Reply Fr L, will there be a mug showing your personal favorite biretta? Christopher Joseph February 18, 2009 at 9:04 pmLog in to Reply I suppose the liturgical “innovators” will have their own mugs soon.”Improve upon the black.”Add a little flair to the red.”And add puppets.” Kimberlee February 19, 2009 at 10:06 amLog in to Reply You could have mugs that say “Standing on My Head”, with the printing upside down of course. opey124 February 19, 2009 at 3:19 pmLog in to Reply LOL!I like the picture…I mean cup!!!What is the saying, keep your friends close but your enemies closer!Too funny Leave A Comment Cancel replyYou must be logged in to post a comment.
