From the blog’s Official Parodohymnodist…
To the tune of Jingle Bell Rock!
Bishops meet, some are sweet, synods are held,
Some are included, some are repelled,
Synodal synods, how synods are run,
Now the synodal way’s begun.
Synods on synods and synods for fun,
Synods for clergy, synods for nuns,
Synodal synods, we’re open! We care!
In St. Peter’s Square!
What a bright time, its the right time
To cast the truth aside,
Synodal time is a full time,
To say we’re humble while we bask in pride!
Giddy-up lazybones, get back to work,
Synods are here to stay,
Marx and Lou Tagle, and Mario Grech,
That’s the synodal way!
Papal calls, synod halls, synodal path,
Synods as deadly as Sylvia Plath,
Dancing and prancing round dogmatic fare
In St. Peter’s Square
Not a fine show, it’s a mime show,
But we can’t look away
Synod yentas, lineamentas
Appear and vanish each and ev’ry day
Giddy-up, rigid ones, get back in place,
All you can do is pray,
Marx and Lou Tagle and Mario Grech,
Run the synodal
Rule the synodal
Own the synodal way…..
