I know it is a bit of a stretch to link the following comment from Mama's Little Ditty, a blog with the uplifiting mission of exploring and sharing the beautiful side of life, to a phrase from the story (see sidebar) about The Monk Who Stole The Cow: "With a heavy heart, the Brother returned. He worried about the future of the family because he knew they depended on the cow to survive." Then again, maybe there is a connection. After all it is the "Year for Priests." So here goes.
Mama's Little Ditty says "In spite of the personal difficulties I have had with the movement over the years and the terrible scandal which is cutting to the core of the unity of the order, I am profoundly grateful for those who have given their lives in service to Christ through the Legion. I pray that this turbulence will not shake their faith but renew in them a commitment to the truth of Jesus Christ and his Church." My sentiments entirely.
