**Phony Catholics

         In today's first reading from 1 Corinthians 12, Paul wrote: Love is patient, love is kind. It is not jealous, love is not pompous, it is not inflated, it is not rude, it does not seek its own interests, it is not quick-tempered, it does not brood injury, it does not rejoice over wrongdoing but rejoices with the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all thing. I don't expect today's politicians who proclaim that they are Catholics to be all saints, but if you measure what they do against the standards Paul has set here, I am afraid that they fail meeting any of them.
