The definite article

Among this year's Vatican II award winners announced by our Archdiocese of Milwaukee on Wednesday was,
Service to the Priesthood – Fr. Joseph J. Juknialis has served his parishioners by empowering them to "be the Church" for over 40 years. He has worked hard to impart the value of preaching well and the preparation it requires to the many seminarians he has taught at the St. Francis de Sales Seminary, Milwaukee. ...

Though some seminarians must have been daydreaming during class and wound up saying things like "be Church" instead.

  1. IIRC, when FrJ was a newbie-ordained he was assigned to Christ King parish...

    ....where he said Mass in the basement while lying on the floor.

    "Be Turkey" is more apropos his 'service.'
