I have been listening to Mother Angelica biograghy CDs for about 4 days in my commute to work. Today I ran across the story when Mother Angelica was raising funds for her new monastery by making and selling fishing lures, she called the sisters who were involve in this work, as well as the buyers who were supporting this business, the "family". With a mind always ready to link anything to BYJ, this story certainly did not escape the radar screen. Catholic teaching has always been putting extra stress on the concept of love and family. Being raised as a Roman Catholic by his devout mother, I have always been wondering whether BYJ calling his fans "family" a trait of his religous upbringing. People may argue that he jokingly referred this "family" more of a "mafia" type. But if I look at the bond that keeps the "mafia" together, is mostly loyal obligation, whereas the bond that keeps a "family" together is love, I would rather believe that he actually meant "family" as a loving family.
Just my random thought. Putting the heavy topic aside, lets go watch the World Cup - Korean has been playing extremely well. I've never paid much attention to Korean before, now everything about Korea is good ever since I met BYJ (I tend to generalize when I get crazy about something, so everything about BYJ is good!!!). Korean food, electronics, semiconductor, automobile, showbiz, soccer, ... Just had Bolguki today! Kids love it! And they scream for Kalbi too!
