My brother, who is a priest, often moans about the expression “Catholic guilt”. He says that every major religion has the concept of sin and that Catholicism is actually more forgiving than many. I do see Project Connor as a great moral cause, a struggle against the sinful desires of the flesh. You will have noticed that on my good days, I speak of having been virtuous, and this week (thank God) has been one principally of virtue. I wonder if I could divorce the idea of eating well from eating morally whether this crusade would be any easier. I think there is a “Catholic [/insert religion of choice]guilt” aspect to my eating.
Don’t worry folks. I’ll have a more typical, less high-falutin’ (lower-falutin’?) post tomorrow. Weigh-in. Aargh!
