From “The Private Diary of Bishop F. Atticus McButterpants” – 23-03-31 – Meeting with clergy

March 31st 2023

Dear Diary,

Had an all afternoon meeting with the clergy yesterday. I’ve decided it’s time to redo our diocesan policy book so we’re tackling the question of whether the diocese should be divided into deaneries or vicariates. Maybe both! A few of us had a nice lunch first at the steakhouse. I had Fr. Tommy pick up subs and water for the rest of them. I overheard one of the guys complaining that we had this meeting during Passiontide, saying he had all sorts of stuff to do at the parish and called this “busy work.” Huh! I never remember things getting all that busy during those six months I was pastor of a parish. I suppose, to be fair, I only had one parish, and these guys each have two or three, but still, how hard can it be? Anyway, we didn’t come to any conclusions, but I did name two new subcommittees to study the issue and report back in a couple months. That should make the nuncio realize that I really am doing my job here.

    Looks like Bishop Fatty McButterpants is looking for a Vatican position. They love commitees and subcommitees. Or maybe running for politcal office… Oh yes, the stopped that some years ago.
