Double Speak?

Yesterday on the way to church, the Beautiful Boy (now 8 years old) said: "What's the deal with calling it Good Friday? It must have been named by either a sarcastic apostle or the government."

Lorna said...


I like him too

(IN Finnish and Swedish it's called LONG Friday)

JWD said...

Long Friday! I LOVE that! I'll tell E. I think he'll approve. :)

Love reading your exchanges with E.

It reminded me of this from T.S. Eliot's Four Quartets:

"The dripping blood our only drink,
The bloody flesh our only food:
In spite of which we like to think
That we are sound, substantial flesh and blood—
Again, in spite of that, we call this Friday good."

Your 8 year old is on to us.

ROFL. A sarcastic apostle, the government or a church committee.;-)

An astute child.
