Fr. Themans presentation reminded me of my kid getting his hand cought in the cookie jar and then spending THREE HOURS trying to convince me that although I saw his hand in the jar, and saw him standing on top of the counter to reach it, and even read the note he sent his brother saying he wanted the cookie, he is not guilty of steeling the cookie. Because, what I think I saw really wasn't what happened. In reality, his fingers never actually touched the cookie. He stopped as soon as I walked in the room. Regardless of what the note said, the cookie never left the jar. He couldn't possibly be guilty of steeling the cookie so lets just all forget about this and go on like nothing happened.
