Brevity is the soul of wit.

One of these days Catholic clergy really need to figure that out.

They’re charged with spreading the Word of God in a world that runs on 140 character tweets.

I can read nothing official without wondering whether perhaps they get paid by the word.

Ya, tried that with the 10 Commandments and it hasn't helped with compliance.

Benedict is likely the best living theologian and has produced magnificent works over the years.

His goal has never been "wit", rather scholarship in conveying God's word and illustrating the meaning to be absorbed and expressed in our daily lives.

That the world runs on 140 character tweets, illustrates a shallowness, not a richness.
