Reminds me of a certain Catholic joke: A Franciscan, a Dominican and a Jesuit were arguing over which religious order was the best. Their debate continued for hours, with no one coming to any kind of terms. The Dominican said, "Look, this whole discussion is pointless. Let's ask the Lord for guidance in this matter." The three prayed together. Suddenly, a pure light filled the room they were in. A dove -- none other but the Holy Spirit Himself -- carried a small note to the Franciscan, which read: My beloved brothers, I am concerned about your bickering. The Apostles themselves fell into this sin. The fact is, My Father and I see you all as equal in person and equal in dignity. I give you my blessings and peace. Eternally yours, Jesus Christ, SJ Danny
