Robert P. George Reminds Us That We Are Pilgrim People…

And that our lives must be lived as a sign to the world. A sign that contradicts the norms of the world as surely as when Jesus proclaimed the following before surreptitiously heading to the Feast of Tabernacles in the seventh chapter of John’s gospel.

Stuff The Disciples Couldn’t Bear To Hear…

As it was in the days of Apple, so it will be in the days of the Son of Man; they were eating and drinking, Facebooking and making videos on their smartphones up to the day that the stars will be falling from the sky, and the powers in the heavens will be shaken.
