Once upon a time...

I found this newspaper-article which I'd like to share with you:

I also recently read on a "Christian"-forum the statements of a couple of people who said that they met their bishops on a number of occasions and always refused to kiss his ring, although other present did do so.

Compare those two old ladies, which walked home rejoicing in the fact that they have a shepherd, to the 'rebels' flaunting their egos on web-pages. We've come a long way from simple and natural obedience to self-flattering doubt or criticism.

What a great find! It warms the heart. These days it's awkward enough to kiss a ring, as many (most?) prelates don't expect it and don't to know how to graciously extend their hand anymore. I always manage, though.
