The Blessing of the Mobile Phones

I’m reluctant to use an article from a digital rag like The Sun, but this can also be found in the Washington Post. In this case, however, The Sun’s ridiculous photos get it the link.

He said the service was an update of a traditional back-to-work ceremony called “Plow Monday”, in which villagers gathered to bless a symbolic farming implement dragged to the church’s door.

If you check more modern translations of the Bible, you’ll see that Isaiah 2:4 reads “They will beat their swords into BlackBerrys and their spears into MacBooks”.
