Herself got to do the second reading at mass on Sunday. Regrettably, we had become blasÃ© and she only looked at the text at the last minute. It contained a number of words she had not previously encountered and of whose meanings she was unsure.
So we found ourselves saying as we walked up the road to mass, “That’s pronounced to rhyme with porgy,hard g as in gin, yes, f*rnication, it’s pronounced as spelt.” I would list all the relevant words but I fear that, even suitably asterisked, they would attract a rough crowd to a family blog. As Mr. Waffle remarked, “The Galatians must have said, ‘It’s another letter from Paul lads, everybody sit down.'” If you are curious, it’s Galatians 5:16-25.
