What is the glory of God?



"The glory of God is man alive; but the life of man is the vision of God." —St. Irenaeus of Lyons, in the territory of France, in his great work Against All Heresies, written c. 180 A.D.

Dr. Robert Moynihan
That horse left the barn a long time ago. The media has already translated it and people have had hours and hours and pages and pages of discussion on it already. The people who make the "official" translations are entirely too slow.

They obviously don't have access to Google Translate  :LOL: :LOL:.

They may be slow, but perhaps that is out of the respect for accuracy. The 'Media' are not historically quite that scrupulous.

The usual transitions in the 'local gab' on any highly discussed issue is that there is lots of speculation, that it comes in early in the discussion, peaks and is littered with innuendo and speculation and well-peppered with inaccurate quotes until an 'official' version is brought forth. Then there is a scattering of opinion, backpedaling and such until the final assessment can be made.

This is always a long phase on the road to the truth of the matter. I prefer to sit back and let the dust settle for a while, read the 'final document' and form my own opinions and then wade into the subsequent fray of conversation that will be better informed and more apropos.

Even religion has been so badly politicized these days..perhaps unprecedentedly so.

It doesn't take that long to translate. Also, the media influences the world so much these days that the Church MUST keep up. How they do it is up to them, but they simply can't wait for people to discuss the unofficial version for this long.
