"The wolf shall dwell with the lamb..."
This description of the order and peace of God's holy mountain (Is. 11) is an apt image of my brief halting of hostilities toward Fr. Tharp even though the fatwa remains (following his placing my head on that dancing figure). Why call off the campaign against Fr. Tharp? Because today is his anniversary of ordination. It was four years ago today that the hands of the Most Reverend Eusebius J. Beltran, a successor of the apostles and Metropolitan Archbishop of Oklahoma City, consecrated Fr. Tharp a priest forever! Congratulations, Fr. Tharp, faithful priest, valued brother, man of vision, and alpha-male ragemonkey!

Again, I remind readers that Fr. Tharp's ordination took place the year AFTER mine. That's AFTER! That makes him my junior by ordination year.
