This evening starts the Jewish feast of Yom Kippur, a day of penance. It is also a day off from school for Jewish kids, and when the feast comes to the end, great food. So we Catholics lose out on a day off from school, and great food. We think Jesus was God and God is supposed to be smart. Why would God found a new religion that keeps kids from getting out of school and from really great Jewish food? We should of all have stayed together. I think Jesus would agree. I think too many guys who don't know or care about good food must have gotten my church turned in some other direction. We do plenty of penance but not with the day off from school and the good food. We Irish could learn something from our Jewish neighbors.
