God says eat your veggies!

Some "food for thought" from today's first reading:

Please test your servants for ten days.

Give us vegetables to eat and water to drink.

Then see how we look in comparison with the other young men who eat from the royal table.

After ten days they looked healthier and better fed
than any of the young men who ate from the royal table.

~From Daniel Chapter 1
Today, this is often called a "detoxification diet" and is thought to be a way to rid the body of unhealthy toxins taken in by our gluttonous lifestyle.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
