Locality and Distance

Locality annihilates distance. At San Pablo Catholic Church here in Little Crawl Key, FL, we get the sense of ordinary locality: the locals receive and guide us, we hear and join in prayers for the locally suffering and the recently locally dead. And as Michelle points out, all across the globe this Sunday at every Catholic church the gospel reading is from Mark 2:1-12. It tells the story of the forgiveness of sins and the healing of the paralytic sinner lowered into Jesus' presence through a hole made in the roof.
