    Well, the distinction that I'd never gotten was that - at first Jesus was all, like, "so? not my problem" And the way the pastor put it, Jesus didn't turn the water into wine just because everyone would leave and head out to the next wedding - there was an actual need for the wine to finish the ceremony. That I can remember this in what came to be a roughly 30 minute homily is kind of surprising. the homily went on forever.

    Martin, broken hand + puncture and still fastest so far, what a beast, but Cancellara looks like he'll take it easily.

    Wow, which philosophy course required you to read the first Critique? Not an intro, I hope! It is a wonderful text, but obviously students need a lot of guidance to see their way through it.



    On the whole, no, although I think Aristotle is absolutely right about some points that are de-emphasized or outright ignored in other traditions. People who work in that tradition would certainly not recognize me as a member of their tribe, but I do have some affinities with them. I do think that the major 20th c virtue ethicists--MacIntyre and Foot, for example--are wrong in some very big ways, though.

    Maybe I'm just like, super smrat or something but I "got" it on the first go round. I think I was second year philosophy when I read it. IRDR.


    You're dead to me. Please tell me you aren't a utilitarian.

    Note: I am not Edina, but here goes.

    The homily (also see: sermon) is the part of the mass after the gospel. The gospel is a reading from one of the four major books of the New Testament (Peter, Paul, Luke, John) and concern Jesus' life and teachings. Essentially, the homily is the priest's chance to drive the point of the gospel home and make it relevant to our daily lives. Sometimes they do a wonderful job, sometimes not so much.

    homily=sermon= no one tells you you're incoherently ranting if you have a black shirt with a white collar, so you can go on diatribes with impunity during the allotted portion of the service, provided you say "jesus", "sinner" and "Morality" at some point during the pontification.

    i dont think it would be appropriate to say "jesus was a sinner who lacked even a modicum of morality."

    you may want to adjust your words, i wouldnt want someone to get the wrong impression. ;)

    Actually, I don't think I've heard 'sinner' or 'morality' in a homily in a long, long time.

    Best homily I've ever heard was by a visiting priest - a Father Kelly from one of the downtown parishes. He started with:

    "People ask me, 'Father, will I go to hell for this?', or 'Will I go to hell for that?' 'Have I been bad?' They wring their hands and look like they're in pain and I don't know what to tell them. The first thing I think of is to ask if they've been to confession lately, and then I tell them that I was just in confession the other day. They look at me and wonder what horrible thing I've done , and I tell them that none of us are perfect. Not you, not I, not the rest of the priests or cardinals or bishops - not any of us. "
