I was much amused by the following matter-of-fact statement in this week's Irish Catholic:
"World Youth Day runs from July 23-28, 2013."
Truly one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years are as one day.
In another story, we come across an example of the law of unintended consequences (although I've always thought that's a rather stupid term):
"A book on sexual morality by an American nun has jumped to 19th on Amazon.com's Top 100 bestsellers listing after the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) issued a warning against its content for faithful Catholics."
