MENE: God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it.
TEKEL: Thou art weighed in the balances, and art found wanting.
PERES: Thy kingdom is divided, and given to the Medes and Persians.
It will happen when it will happen.
Bis dimitto si cito dimitto.
Catholics scorn therapeutic religion, but that is what Orthodox religion is. Of course, the Catholics and the Orthodox intend different connotations, but one must not use the word like a stick.
I think it wonderfully incarnate that when we speak of God the Almighty is subject to grammar, and that when He speaks to us He speaks grammatically.
