29 November 2015. Happy Holidays to All of Y’all… Now, Come Back, Y’Hear (Don’t be a Stranger)!

00 Petra Brown cat and dog 291115


Whatever holiday you celebrate… whatever your race or creed… HAPPY HOLIDAYS! There’s nothing wrong in that at all. NOTHING. There’s no war against Christmas… there’s no persecution of Christians… but there IS an imperative on our part to spread the love given by Our Lord Christ and the joy that such implants in our hearts. Last time that I looked, the Lord Christ discriminated against no one, so neither should we. To all of you, whatever you celebrate at this time of year (for all, both believers and secularists, celebrate SOMETHING, if nothing else than the Mid-Winter Festival):


Now, where’s that jug… it’s time for a party…



29 November 2015. Cabinet Vox Pop on Priests and the Internet



One the Cabinet sounded off on priests and the internet:

I totally agree with you. Priests must follow a higher standard, and the stuff you see from some of them on public blogs, Facebook posts, and a variety of internet places is appalling. They seem to forget they represent an important authoritative voice of the Church, which is way more important than their personal quirky ideas, feelings, and dumb-ass opinions. It’s not like they’re in some inconsequential secular job; they’re in the business of salvation, theirs and ours. What can be more important than that? However, their opinions seem more like a Charlie Brown cartoon.

I’d go further… I’d say that some of the rubbish that you see from “conservative” priests is downright demonic and false. It’s time for the bishops to step in and do some ass-kickin’… just sayin’…


29 November 2015. On a Proper Attitude to the Fast…

00 smiling monks 291115


Don’t walk around with a long face! Don’t tell people that you’re abstaining! Do good as much as you can! Do to others as you’d like them to do unto you! There… that’s the ticket for the Fast. If you don’t have joy in your heart, your fast is a sham and Satan sits on the throne. Do think on that whenever you hear the usual cast of suspects bloviate on this or that minute flyspeck in the canons. The Fast is a GIFT… do meditate on that…
