Most people love miscellanea -- facts that are not part of a fact pattern but, in their own way, stand up and invite us to take notice of them.
Most of us carry around with us certain facts that run counter to the public understanding. And sometimes these counter-facts become family traditions. My father, for example, was especially fond of the way the term Immaculate Conception does NOT refer to the manner in which Jesus was brought into the world but applies instead to the conception of his mother Mary. My father was an ardent non-believer, and he enjoyed confronting believers with the knowledge that they were not even familiar with their own belief systems.
He also liked to ask people to name the 12 disciples. You'd be surprised at how many people lead off with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, assuming that the gospel writers were disciples.
We talked about this and a bunch of other interesting dinner table facts on our show today.
