Say--Did you know St. Joan's had a motto?

"We welcome you wherever you are on your journey."

Sounds nice, open and tolerant. But, as one of their lazy-susan homilists points out, niceness, openness and tolerance have their limits these days.

We welcome you wherever you are on your journey, but understand, that St. Joan of Arc is also on a journey.

Translation: people expecting even the most tenuous connections with the Catholic Faith had best shove off and find another bus. Again:

We welcome you wherever you are on your journey, but understand, that St. Joan of Arc is also on a journey.

It reminds me of the words of another poet, in this case a deceased Australian named Bon Scott.

"All my friends are gonna be there, too...."
