    “We will continue to exercise our right to Receive standing”.

  14. Peter says:

    It is Chant class for bishops: “Here is Dooooh” …

  15. “So… chant does make you taller….”

    “I think the speaker said, ‘It makes you grow in your faith’.”

    “Close enough for Vatican work.”

  16. Mary Ann says:

  17. Andy F. says:

    I’ll put up the same one I put on the Papist Facebook page.

    “No, no, not ‘ra ra ra ra’, ‘la la la la’! Try again. ”

    Ten points to the person who knows where it is from without looking it up.

  22. irishgirl says:

    I’m not that creative-but the above suggestions are pretty hysterical!

    Thanks, Fr. Z and Thomas the Young Papist-we need a good laugh!

    The three in the back are stating: “Too bad those bishops in the front didn’t have their parking permits.”

  24. Mike Morrow says:

    “Just remember in the future, guys, that wearing white sheets and peaked headgear *could* be very confusing to some people.”

  25. Fr. John Mary says:

    “Is that what ‘actuosa participatio’ means? Really???!”

  26. Mary Ann says:

    Back, BACK, I say—one of you is over the line and another stepping right on it! I mean, REALLY…you’d think I’d asked you to toe a NCR or Notre Shame line!

  27. lofstrr says:

    “Yes I am serious, the Pope wants you to prepare for a night time parachute drop into the Diocese of Scranton to reinforce Bishop Martino. Expect intense liturgical and catechetical ground conflict.”
