    One Ring to bind them all,
    One Ring to find them,
    One Ring to rule them all,
    And to the rubrics bind them.

    “To you curial officials who released all that nonsense about the deformation of the Good Friday prayers, I give you the back of my hand.”

  6. That’s an awful like a ‘live action’ shot of the teaching gesture you refer to in the comments to this post, Father.

  7. Jeff Pinyan says:

    The Holy Father demonstrates his bowling technique; the Vatican’s “holy rollers” are undefeated in their league.

  8. Our sweet LORD does not will for the Church to be subjected to liturgical claptrap. No! In the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he brings us to reverence AND joy…which ARE compatible, by the way!!!

  9. “Two men decided that they wanted to have a BBQ at the Vatican, so they climbed over the wall and into the garden. While one of the men was setting up the grill, the other noticed the Holy Father coming into the garden area and dove in the bushes. The Holy Father walked right up to the man with the grill, said something to him and appeared to make the sign of the cross over him and and walked away. The man in the bushes ran up to his friend and said, “Was that something! Not only did he speak to you, he gave you a papal blessing!!! What did he say?”

    The other man, while making a gesture that looked like the blessing repeated the Holy Father’s words:

    “He said, ‘You and the fella in the bushes get your grill and get the heck outta here!'”
