The early Church baptized catechumens in the nude.  This meant the newly baptized were leaving everything behind to the point that their behinds were uncovered.  Baptizing females in the nude, therefore, was one of the functions of deaconesses, that lasted until infant Baptism came into vogue.[1]  Rosemary Canavan argues that You were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the power of God, who raised him from the dead is about a contrast expressed through clothing with the surrounding culture.[2]

The Responsorial Antiphon for this Sunday is Lord, on the day I called for help, you answered me (Psalm 138:3a).[31]

 

In the gobbledygook prayer at Sunday Mass immediately following the forgiveness of sins, the Faithful hearing the 2011 Roman Missal can listen for “without whom nothing has firm foundation”.[32]  For a more thorough examination of the illiterate 2011 Roman Missal, go to 1610 Missal:  Thirty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time 121125.pdf/htm at http://www.western-civilization.com/CBQ/Personal%20Notes/Personal%20Notes.htm.

 

This is a call for grace that some Black Baptists bring to mind with  (.[33] 

 

Addenda

 

Personal Notes has been wary of Raymond Arroyo, host of “the World Over, on the Eternal Word Television Network, EWTN, attacking Pope Francis.  Personal Notes has watched for various Papal policies, like anything possibly construed as positive for Democrats, that Arroyo might systematically attack.  Nothing seemed to fall into place until a better realization of what the “Papal Posse,” with Robert Royal, a journalist, and Father Gerald Murray, a canon lawyer, means.  The Posse is out to find and attack Pope Francis, and this on a Catholic network.  This fell into place at the program Thursday, June 25, 2016.  EWTN represents the stand of the United States Catholic Conference of Bishops (USCCB).

 

I have already read every article cited in the Catholic Biblical Quarterly.  At this stage I only read unread book reviews there.  Traditionally Theological Studies articles have been more helpful to my prayer life, but, if I have already read the article, I will cite it without annotation.  In a similar way, I present the Reformation Commentary on Scripture.  I lack the time and energy to annotate what is there, though I am mentioning names found there.

 

I intend to begin catching up on material postponed while recovering from the transition of ourselves from Virginia to Ohio and Marty into the next life.  If I ever get three months out, again, I then intend to reevaluate the amount of energy placed into Personal Notes each week.
