yrieithydd: (Visitation)

I love Corpus Christi and over the last few years in Cardiff and Bristol I've struggled to find places which keep it as well as LSM did in Cambridge on the historic date of the Thursday after Easter. For example last year at All Saints', Clifton only the Sanctuary party processed and only around church. So this year as I had two days off (my weekend) and I hadn't been to Cambridge for over 6 months I decided the best plan was a trip to Cambridge. This was only my second trip back since LSM got a new vicar and my first since he started changing things last Advent.


They've changed it; it's wrong? )

yrieithydd: (Cross)
Someone on the Ship of Fools Discussion boards posted a link to a site which tells us that Catholics aren't Christians. One of the pages is about Tradition is bad because it is not in the Bible. However, I was amused by the following as it shows lack of Greek!

1 Corinthians

15:3, 11 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that
Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed.

Where does it say, "Listen to Catholic Tradition?" Relevance please? Where does it say this was passed down by oral tradition?

When one consults the greek of this chapter, one sees that the verb translated delivered in the version used (I suspect KJV) is παρεδωκα which the cunning morphological analysis tool at perseus tells me means give or hand over to another, transmit. Now one of the Greek words for tradition is παραδoσις. The trouble is that English doesn't have a verb which goes with tradition. Welsh has traddodi which is what one does with traddodiad. So it is precisely saying that Paul received the tradition orally!
