As D-Day approaches for the compulsory implementation of the New Roman Missal, some of us are in need of a chuckle. Thank you to the good folks at the National Catholic Reporter for publishing a great little piece of fiction called Mapping a liturgical sentence ! It`s laugh out loud hilarious!
I only hope I don`t giggle when when these lines are read on Sunday! 😉

Hi Isabella – this comment has nothing to do with the post 🙂 but I thought of you today as I was listening to a debate on NPR “Would the World be better off without religion?” http://www.npr.org/2011/11/21/142470957/would-the-world-be-better-off-without-religion
It was interesting – I think the most frustrating aspect was the assumption made by those for (including the great great grandson of Charles Darwin) that religion is for those who don’t know how to reason. An old and tired argument.
Thanks Marilyn! I`ll gladly give it a listen. We watched the Mark Twain Award honoring George Carlin last night on PBS. Loved it all except for a segment with Bill Maher. And Maher claims religion is intolerant and judgmental! Sigh….
BTW…your recent blog posts on `God of the details` and trying to be faithful to your beliefs in times of testing are truly inspirational. Joining you in prayer for Annie`s safety in Cairo…and for true and lasting peace in Egypt.
Thank you so much! I don’t know if you saw my blog today but the picture of her street is pretty amazing….:) Happy American Thanksgiving to a Catholic Canadian from a Protestant Blog friend – wow…that has a certain ring to it!
Yes, I did see the photo on your blog today. How horrible…and scary. Your mother`s heart must have flipped! I so appreciate your perspective on these international stories, whether from the eyes of your children or from your own experiences living there. And, yes, a very happy, joy-filled, and blessed Thanksgiving to my American, Protestant, Blogger, boundary crossing, multi-cultural friend and kindred spirit! 🙂
Thanks for finding and sharing this Isabella! I needed a good laugh right about now, and this provided it. Having no choice regarding the New Roman Missal the best thing we can do is to just ‘grin and bear it’, and I for one appreciate opportunities to just grin about it! As an old brunch friend, I am delighted to have found your blog, J Daniel
Wow…a blast from the past! It`s so good to `hear` your voice, Dan. I have many fond memories of laughter when our two families got together. Here`s to a good sense of Catholic humour! And thanks for reading the blog. 🙂
