Sheep bite

Many times, the laity of the Church are called the sheep, while the priests are referred to as shepherds.

Now, yesterday I took my kids to a pumpkin patch where they have a little "petting" zoo, and there, I was almost bitten by a pig.  I thought it hilarious at the time.

But a thought entered my mind.  Even farm animals will bite, kick, and ram you if you abuse them.  I suppose the same could be said about an abused herd of sheep?

  1. Nice fantasy, the herd is complacently being led to the slaughter.

    1. Fantasy? I don't know, friend. I can't think of a time in Church history when you had this amount of vocal resistance from the laity.
