My Heart Is Catholic


...but my stomach is Protestant.






Matthew 26:41 The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Galatians 5:24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

I totally sympathise with Erasmus on that; although maybe "my stomach is unregenerate pagan" would be truer for me. (The good I want to do, I do not do...) Interesting that he thought of "Protestant" as a descriptor for an undisciplined appetite...

Woo for Talbot art. Guy's a good artist.

Uhm... he didn't. He thought of "Protestant" as a descriptor for... Protestants.

...aha. So it's just me who instinctively parses it that way, rather than Erasmus.
