This is something we have to pray about.
Who is this guy???? Is that all he can say???? How annoying!!!
Yep! :cheers: As my niece would say back when she was five years old: Don't let it bother you.
This very thing happened to me!!
I was working for a contractor who had this gung-ho charismatic take on everything.
It was getting under my skin, so I gently tried to offer him FACTS of things that
are going on now (then: 20 years ago!), and thought that he must not know
about this stuff, you know, Assisi I, and things around that time, late 80's early
90's. It was not very rewarding. He kept responding by saying that "we should
pray about this," or "we should pray for all concerned."
In fact, it was "annoying."
When he had something to say, it was a rebuttal, like "I'm in a group that is
making it part of their daily routine to read one page of THE Catchism (CCC)
every day." It was too 'difficult' to read a lot at a time, you see. He thought of
it as his Catholic 'duty' to 'keep up with the Church.'
But he did not have any contributions regarding local news. And I know that he
knew things, because he was one of the guys who was making contracts with
Cardfile Balony to tear out confessionals and remodel sanctuaries all over the Los
Angeles Archdiocese. You know, all the details needed to install a full-imersion
baptismal font in the area that used to be reserved for clerics of minor orders,
and the 'special skills' involved in moving the tabernacle to a broom closet or
an exiled "Eucharist chapel." He knew things, all right, but apparently his
paycheck was too tied up in his keeping his mouth shut about it. Critical thinking
wasn't his first strong point.
I started to complain at home to my family, because I needed to talk to someone
about it. My daughter told me something then, when she was about 5 years old
too, like don't let it bother you.
That's great. Wisdom from a child. ....
