Tom and Jerry: Defenders of All Things Right and Good

Sunday, August 05, 2007

Thank God for small blessings......

There was common Catholic blog theme a couple of weeks back, in which each blogger listed the "Five Things I Love About Jesus". I thought about joining in here on Tom and Jerry, but I really couldn't come up with anything that wasn't already said, and said better, somewhere else. Mostly, I love that He puts up with me. Other than that, I'm not sure where to go next.

However, being the media culture maven that I am, a thought did cross my mind as I was foraging through the magazine racks at the local Gas-N-Sip: I love that He came 2000 years ago and not today. In our age of media frenzy, I can only imagine how the life of Christ would play out in 21st century media and culture:
