“Unfortunately, on the one hand a deadly error in judgment placed the official leadership of this committee into the hands of a man who—though generous and brave—was not very knowledgeable: Cardinal Lercaro. He was utterly incapable of resisting the maneuvers of the mealy-mouthed scoundrel that the Neapolitan Vincentian, Bugnini, a man as bereft of culture as he was of basic honesty, soon revealed himself to be.”
— Fr. Louis Bouyer, an important member of the Consilium

Don't You Hate It?
published 23 September 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

388 Hofmann ERE AT WATERSHED, we strive to create beautiful, meaningful posts on our blog. We eschew “cheap” gossip and/or uninformed bloviation. We have important reasons for doing this, and perhaps someday we can explain further. There are so many subjects we would like to comment on. We believe our blog will have quality offerings for years to come.

On the other hand, sometimes I’m tempted to share a short news item or particularly good quote. Here’s one I cannot resist sharing:

Many in the audience have to wait until the following morning, so they can read the reviews and find out whether they enjoyed the concert.

How true this is! And this doesn’t just apply to music, either. So many folks need to be “told” what they think and how they feel. Here is where the media plays such an ingenious (yet diabolical) role. Perhaps we can talk more about this at a later time.

Anyway, enjoy that quote! I can’t remember where I first heard it or who said it.
