      Sinterklaas. He comes here the 5th of december. Santa is his nephew.
      Actually, I know him personally. He attends the Mennonite church I used to attend. His name is "Ed" (a pseudonym, obviously) and he's at the local mall every year




      Don't tell me San.... er... Ed's not real!
      I Hope This HelpsTM

      Now I understand why they're called Mennonites. Lutherans aren't called "Martinites," you know, or Calvinists "Johnists."

      Did things happen in your youth so you feel you have to give presents to everyone to feel accepted?
      How was your father? Go back to your toddler years. What did you feel then?

      I've had it already w this therapiet.

      Calling them Simonites would be unpleasantly suggestive of Simony so Menno Simons' first name became the name for them as Mennonites. Martin Luther's followers became known as Lutherans and John Calvin's followers became known as Calvinists so Mennonites is consistent - with the understanding that Simon was not really available without seriously prejudicing people against them.
      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.
