Everybody's Got One
A blog. An opinion. An elimination orifice. A dream. An agenda. A past. A hidden talent. A conceptual filter. A cross. A charism (often the same). A task. A wound. A destiny. A lost love. A blind spot. A bad habit. A secret. A passion. A soul ... okay, maybe not everybody ...

Just like that, eh?  

From today's first reading:
They stoned Paul and dragged him outside the city, thinking he was dead. But after the disciples had gathered around him, he got up and went back into the city.
Which is more unlikely: that the good citizens of Lystra thought Paul was dead when he was actually fine, or that the disciples gathered around him raised him from the dead and it wasn't officially certified (so as not to upstage Peter and Tabitha, perhaps)?

Ideofact has an interesting speculation on why some texts became canonical and others didn't - and why we shouldn't think we understand all the reasons.
