catholic factoid

Some of our Bible Study classes are more interesting than others.  Some really touch the heart; others are more for the head.  The class this past week was on Matthew 16, and focused almost entirely on the papacy.  It was more for the head.  Anyway....did you know....that the word "Pontiff" means "bridge".  I always thought it was just some fancy word for "Pope".  But "pont" in French means "bridge", so this made perfect sense, once I heard it  The Pope - the Pontiff - is a bridge between Jesus and His church (us).  I thought that was kind of neat.  Your mileage may vary.
