JC in NY

On this feast of Saint Jerome, the patron saint of biblical scholarship--and recalling that even the devil himself has been known to quote the scriptures--it seemed exceedingly appropriate that my dear friend Ximena should send me this picture she took on a NYC subway:

Saint Jerome once famously wrote, "Ignorance of scripture is ignorance of Christ."  Clearly, Jesus was not a New Yorker...but neither can New Yorkers ignore him these days!  Ha!

I would have written underneath that To the person who wrote this if you had actually read that passage you would know that Jesus was talking about heaven and not earth. and that when He went to heaven He would prepare a place for us.
