In the midst of the introduction of the new translation of the liturgy (an exercise that is happening in a rather piecemeal fashion not only across the English speaking world, but even in our own country), I heard this morning a comment that should be of interest.
Father, Professor, Doctor Dan Madigan SJ was giving a lecture about dialogue with Muslims. In it, he was raising again the (now classic) corrective that the true correspondence is not Muhummed/Jesus or Koran/Bible, but Koran/Word-of-God/Jesus.
In this connection, he made the comment:
“The true sacred language of the Church is the flesh.”
True, nicht wahr?
