A Thousand Generations

A Thousand Generations

Postby Gabriel » Wed Mar 16, 2016 6:15 pm

The Responsorial Psalm for tomorrow, Psalm 105, states: 8* He is mindful of his covenant for ever, of the word that he commanded, for a thousand generations,


This was written some 3000 to 4000 years ago. There are three or four generations each century - 90 to 160 generations.

Conclusion: We still have a long way to go. :ponder:

thank goodness!

Though it's scary to imagine some angelic canon-laywer in the far future sending a little postcard to the Lord with the note 'Dear (Name) ALMIGHTY, Time to renew your insurance policy.'
