    “Cross-ice” the way the little mites play…

  2. capebretoner says:

    Now remember your Eminences,
    when the music stops everyone must race to sit down in one of the chairs.
    The player who is left without a chair is eliminated from the game.

  3. OmnesSanctiOrateProNobis says:

    “Liturgical dance” break-dance session. “This is ridiculous,” says one Cardinal.

    ‘It looks as though two of us have just been beamed up by Scottie.’

  5. Tom in NY says:

    Annuntio vobis gaudium magnum: nominationem Ludovici Cardinalis Zamboni SRE.

    Salutationes omnibus.

  6. “Oh, no. Whenever they turn on the fish-eye gravity warp setting, it makes me nauseous.”

    “Offer it up.”

  7. Shellynna says:

    The Vatican version of “Duck, duck, goose”: “Cardinal, cardinal, pope!”

  8. amenamen says:

    Singing the Vatican national anthem before the opening face-off.
    Why do they need the songbooks?

  9. Maxiemom says:

    The cardinals warmed up for Ash Wednesday by singing their own version:
    “Ring around the rosey,
    A pocket full of posies,
    Ash Wednesday, Ash Wednesday
    We all fall down.”

  10. Mike says:

    “Remember, your Eminences, when the puck is dropped, the game is on. Once you’re in my penalty box, you’re not getting out.”

    Where’s Paprocki when we need him?

    “Deus in adjutorium meum intende.
    Domine, adjuvandum me festina.
    Gloria Patri…”

    “Sing of the Lord’s goodness, father of all wisdom, come to Him and bless His name….”

    “I need a volunteer to go convert Rowan. Please step forward if you want the job.”

  16. Phil_NL says:

    Ok, your eminences, the Holy Father wants to know who ‘appropriated’ his supply of Mystic Monk coffee.

    No-one may leave the room till this has been cleared up.

  20. amenamen says:

    A man becomes preeminent, he’s expected to have enthusiasms. Enthusiasms… Enthusiasms… What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? [grabs a hockey stick] Hockey! A man stands alone on the ice. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the rink, what? Part of a team. Teamwork…. Looks, passes, checks, hustles – part of one big team. Skates himself the live-long day, Bobby Orr, Wayne Gretzky, and so on. If his team don’t cooperate… what is he? You follow me? No one! Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say? “I’m goin’ out there for myself. But… I get nowhere unless the team wins.”

  21. Evangeliman says:

    You do realize that the ones wearing red die, right?

  22. Widukind says:

    Gentlemen! Here is the first ‘step’ in an exercise of Liturgical movements:
    “Put your ‘rite’ foot in, put your ‘rite’ foot out, and shake it all about…..
