Congratulations are in Order!
Congratulations to Abuna Don Sawyer of Our Lady’s Maronite Catholic Church, on being granted the rank of Periodeut with the title of Monsignor. I cannot imagine a more worthy candidate.
I confess. I had no idea what “Periodeut” meant, and could not find a web definition, so I had to ask. Apparently it is the rank given to one who can be dispatched by the Bishop to speak and act with his authority. (Someone please correct me if I phrased that poorly.) I believe the English equivalent would be “Enforcer.”
From now on, I encourage all parishioners and friends of Our Lady’s to address Abuna Don as “Hammer.”
