Congregatio pro Evangelizatione Interretiali

Over at The Hermeneutic of Continuity, blog of the great Fr. Fingan (whom-I-had-hoped-was-the-soon-to-be-named-Archbishop), I have discovered some whimsy. 

All bets are off for me as Archbishop of Westminster. Just before April 1st draws to a close, I have found out that Pope Benedict has other ideas for myself and Fr Zuhlsdorf of the megablog What Does The Prayer Really Say. Apparently, we are to be appointed to the new Sacred Congregation for Internet Evangelisation. See the story from the Cross Reference: News: New dicastery for Catholic bloggers formed.

I can feel a song coming on…

Ode on the appointment of two priest bloggers to the newly-formed Congregatio pro Evangelizatione Interretiali
To the tune of "Me and Julio down by the school yard"

The cardinal prefect rolled out a bed
Heading up a new congregation
When the Papa found out he began to shout
And he issued a communication

It’s within the law
It was within the law
What the Papa saw
It was within the law.

The prefect look round and muses aloud
We gotta team to hit dissension
The Papa said, "Sheesh, if I get that priest,
I’m gonna get him give my blog a mention."

Well I’m on my way.
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Brenda queen of the English
See you, me and Z in a
Roman dicastery
See you, me and Z in a Roman dicastery

In a couple of days they come and
Take me away
But the web can’t keep a secret
And when the radical priests
Found the news released
We were dissed in the back of the Tablet

And I’m on my way
I don’t know where I’m going
I’m on my way, I’m taking my time
But I don’t know where
Goodbye to Brenda queen of the English
See you, me and Z in a
Roman dicastery
See you, me and Z in a Roman dicastery
Singin’ me and Z in a Roman dicastery.

Now… wouldn’t that be something?

    After reading about ‘Vatican spokesman’ Fr Tim’s, ‘Pope drinks Fanta,’ scoop in several Bristish newspapers, this comes as no surprise.

    Best line: “And when the radical priests
