The Moynihan Report: Letter #31: The Program, and the Sheriff



March 2, 2013, Saturday -- The Program, and the Sheriff


"Nevertheless, with most of them God was not well-pleased; for they were laid low in the wilderness...
"Now these things happened to them as an example, and they were written for our instruction, upon whom the ends of the ages have come.

"Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall."

St. Paul, 1st Letter to the Corinthians, 10:5, 11-12, warning his readers not to desire "evil things," lest they be "laid low" by God. The reading was the second reading today in Catholic Masses in Rome
