My husband an I watched a BBC documentary on the "Dark Ages" not too long ago, and learned what dimwits we were to have believed them unenlightened. It's a perverse form of pride that each generation believes itself to be more intelligent than the one before. The older I get, the more I realize how much I have yet to learn. The professor makes a good point about honouring one's ancestors. We should not only honour them, but remember to pray for them as well. - Jean
