Views of a new Catholic in an old world on the joy and inexhaustible meaning found in the Faith

Amen. That is all (H/T Southern Fried Catholicism).
No commercial has ever better inadvertently communicated the delusions of an insecure male ego than this series. But the above use of this abomination is palliative. A real interesting man was Eliseus who like Christ could see far distant conversations…e.g.Gehazi ripping off Naaman for silver by lying… just as Christ saw Nathaniel while not being present:Jn 1 ” 33 Nathanael said to him, “How do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, I saw you under the fig tree.”49 Nathanael answered him, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God; 34 you are the King of Israel.”
Now those two….Eliseus and Our Lord….they were more interesting than an old geezer thinking multiple young models are longing for him….possible only if he’s rich…not if he’s delivering for Domino’s Pizza and combining it with social security.
No commercial has ever given rise to more spinoffs in casual conversation. It is hilarious. There are endless riffs you can you make on this.
“God save us from sour-faced saints,” etc., etc., etc.
