But I am a contrary cuss, and when I arrived at Mass and found I was to do the readings from 1 John and Matthew 23, I was disappointed at that. (I suspect they had been timed and gave promise of saving us all 17 syllables, maybe a good 8 seconds.)
Not that 1 John isn't the most gorgeously consoling sequence of words ever.
But I had prepared and wanted to read this -
This is the will of God -- your holiness.
