Gotta love this. . . 
From Pope Benedict's reflection on the teachings of St. Bede the Venerable yesterday as reported by CNA:
Additionally, Bede the Venerable instructs the laity that "Christ wants an industrious Church, tanned from the efforts of evangelization," "which must be supplemented by being "assiduous in their religious education."

Course the only time my Irish/German fairness ever looks tan is when I have so many freckles that they begin to merge but perhaps I can acquire a spiritual tan . . .

Apparently, when it comes to evangelization and formation, sun block is just not the thing.
