I just really love this!

I just really love this! June 11, 2016

The Babylon Bee (satire) reports that 37% of Evangelical prayer time spent saying the word “just”.

Oh. So. True. Brings back memories of a favorite cartoon in The Wittenburg Door, another Evangelical satire magazine. A young man is hunched over in earnest prayer, eyes clenched shut, praying, “Lord, I just really want to come before you and just really pray, Lord, that you would just really remove the words ‘just’ and ‘really’ from my prayer life!”

One of the things I realized in becoming Catholic was that we Evangelicals, who criticized the rote liturgical language of Catholics, had our own rote liturgical language.  It was just more impoverished than Catholic rote liturgical language.
