Rare footage of Padre Pio

BB just came across this post at Fr Tim Finigan’s blog, and thought our readers would like to see it too:

PS: Do please visit “The Hermeneutic of Continuity” blogsite. It is probably the most important UK Catholic blog of them all, and there is always something worth a ‘nosey’.

    Toad, took Burro’s advice, as always, and visited…

    “The Hermeneutic of Continuity” (What a name for a Garage band!)

    Very measured and reasoned piece on condoms and all that, by a man named McCarthy, (though Toad would dispute the ‘Greatness’ of Anscombe, who will go down as the interpreter of Ludwig, and little more, he thinks) but then here is an alternative view, of sorts.

    Toad is constantly interested – and impressed (and horrified, at times) – at how two people, or groups, can interpret the same information in such different ways – both sincerely, apparently.

    Teresa,

    It was not the art that Toad thought would upset you, it was the exploitation of ants.

    Try marrying up two witness statements from two individuals stood in the same place, seeing the same event.

    The problem is basically one of raster: we see a little of the world and fill in the rest from our memories and imaginations; this extends beyond our senses into our so-called “higher faculties” too.

    True, Raven – but then communication is all hopeless, isn’t it?

    Still, we knew that, going in.

    (Toad must get new specs. He read above as, “The problem is basically one of rasher,” which disturbed him for a moment.)
