And here’s what the students and baby-boomers of Xavier University’s Bellarmine Chapel learned over the weekend from Ken Overberg, S.J., about the Sunday readings:
- “Social justice is the concern of religion”; not a concern mind you, but the concern.
- The capitalized term “Reign of God” is casually slipped into the text, a sure reference to the dissentient theology which goes by that name and that was described and debunked by Pope Benedict in his now classic work Jesus of Nazareth.
- Early “puzzled” Christians fabricated much of the content that follows the parable of the unjust steward in Luke’s Gospel.
- The First Letter to Timothy was “not actually written by Paul, but by an unknown author probably in the second century.”
That is all.
