I have been dobbed in for a few memes lately and have had no interest in following these up (eg. what car would Jesus drive. Really.)
I wasn’t dobbed in for this one started by Marco, but I like it. He calls it the “Saintly Dinner Meme”:
If you could invite your five favorite saints to dinner, what would you serve them to eat and drink, and why?
Fish. Appropriately enough.
St John the Apostle
A “heavenly feast” along the lines of Isaiah 25: “a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wines, of rich food filled with marrow, of well-aged wines strained clear.”
Venerable John Henry Newman
A five course meal, including both “the soup and the fish” so we could discuss one another’s conversions between them.
St Thomas More
Roast Beef and red wine. He was English, right?
Okay, okay, I know that he wasn’t a saint (some would say he was the exact opposite), but I would like to enjoy some “table talk” with him over a good Wittenberg beer.
