That I don’t or that I can’t blush is a fallacy. It just doesn’t happen very often. I could go for years without blushing.
Well I got an e-mail from a ‘friend’, a great fan of my papal writings, today, that did make me blush.
He along with three others are helping me proof my latest pope book, because I can’t proof my own writing to save my life.
The book is 92% done so yesterday I sent out the Foreword (yes, that is how it is spelled) to the book which is written by a Catholic Father from the U.K., a frequent collaborator, Fr. Anthony.
Fr. Anthony is highly educated, some of it in Rome, has the equivalent of a doctorate in Canon Law (a so called S.T.L.) and has even celebrated Mass, with Pope Paul VI (#263) in St. Peter’s. He writes very well.
So when I sent out the Foreword for ‘review’ by my little selected panel, I said this, because that is what I BELIEVE:
“Unlike my chapters this is very well written and I didn’t see any typos.”
One of the reviewers sent me back this in return. It was nice to hear. But, made me blush.
“DO NOT sell yourself short.
There is more talent in a nail clipping
from one of your pinkie fingers
that anyone I can think of that
has, is, or ever will publish anything!”
