  1. Cantor says:

    Our pastor congratulated us in his Sunday sermon for our fervent acceptance and belief in the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. But many of us, he continued, seem to forget that it applies to Mary, not us!
    “So,” he continued, “how about the rest of us get together Tuesday night at our communal penance service and feel, for as long as we choose, what it truly feels like to be sin free!”

    Thanks, Father!

    Father: just on a footnote to the Four Crowned Martyrs: Christine Mohrmann (in ‘Liturgical Latin’) writes that Aesculepius had the attribute (in Greek) of ‘sotir’ – ‘Saviour’. And that Latin Romans were culturally far more sensitive than were the Greeks to using language connected with the pagan religions.
    It’s only my supposition, but perhaps this was the sticking point – the martyrs were being deliberately goaded into sacrificing to Aesculepius – a historical human being made god – as ‘conservator’ or ‘salvator’ – and they would only call Christ their ‘Saviour’?
    (This is a serious point, btw, not an April Fool’s!)
    That church (Quattro coronati) is absolutely stunning! A must see next time I’m in Rome.

  4. Vecchio di Londra says:

    I should have clarified: ‘Christians who were Latin Romans were culturally more sensitive than were the Greek Christians etc’
