Roll Out Those Lazy, Hazy, KRAZY KATHOLIC Summer Freaks . . .

Father catching a few rayz of sun even though feeling a little bloated. That lazt Gotham Gaztronomic Glutfezt  almozt did me in. Going to have to have the 501 tactical clericalz let out in the waist. Again. 

Every summer since they spent a week in the Thailand Missions,  Father Kirk Fitzpatrick and Father Patrick Fitzkirk of the newly established Oratory of Two of Ss. Horatio and Fellatio, invite the young Buddhist novices to spend a week with them. Fathers Neill and Bobb from the Oratory of Two of Ss Sergius and Bacchus join them for the sloppy second half of the week.

Liberal nuns, probably from the LCWR, who have abandoned their full traditional habit, have rented out Father's Sabine Beach House for a week. The two professed sisters in the black veils (Sister M. Sexburga  and Sister M. Cunnigrinder Cunegunda each brought two novices to cook and clean for them.

What a summer it's been around here . . . all kinds of rare whales have been washing up on our beaches (though certainly no mob of Moby Dicks, but I digress) . . . which gets in the way of our outdoor Masses . . .

Well, You-Know-Who was the principal celebrant of THAT Mass . . . but it was Novus Ordo . . . the real one was done up in the mountains.

After Mass Father treated the gang (all five guys) to a repertoire from his days before seminary. 

You can see from the first picture, it was hard to accommodate the crowds, as it always is at the TLM that is going to save the Church, as The Bishop Fellay Show and a host of Krazy Katholics (some of them pretend Konverts) are always reminding us . . . 

Speaking of which . . . while I sit here tending to the blender that periodically will render the frozen concoction that helps Father D hang on . . . people send me stories from around the Krazy Katholic Kraposphere  . . . what treasures this week brought into the humble hermitage.



As always the TLM was packing the people in!

Yes, +Anathema ScheitfṺrbrainz, the only bishop consecrated by a layman has surfaced again, hanging out with Dame Auldqueen Reid (Harry's kid brother) in the Diocese of Fruit-Jus Too-Loose
Good to know those two are going to save the Church from Laudato Si and the Synod of Compassion by laying down the law about gays and divorced people and other sinners. Whew!

And they're not alone!

I was happy to run An Army of Youth Flying the Standards of Truth a while back, but I had no idea how THAT idea would catch on as a perfect way to Save the Church!


The Venerable Venomous Mary-Vampires of Transylvania just took off running . . . well, wobbling, with the idea! The future of Krazy Katholic (Some of Them Pretend) Konvert Kingdom is securely in the hands of
Knight Commander Father Lacy-Lucy-Mary and Knight Squire Elmira-Jeremiah-Mary!

And their troops!

Ok, I know what you're thinking . . . women aren't welcome in the ranks of such Manly Men!

Wrong! They have Altar Girls!

And the rest of the women (three?) are properly veiled and allowed to hit the high notes (although the monks do wear the proper orthopedic pelvis wraps to help with the Kyries) and to starch the purificators and corporals in order to assure valid Latin Mass (the one on the far right is not a woman)

Reynaldo often wore red tassels when serving cocktail parties around here, so it's good to see the same outfit being used for the Krazy Krusade!

The Dubbing Dame was none other than Dame Edith Evans!

Who has made very few public appearances since her last famous role.

And she came armed for battle, let me tell you!

That sword looks familiar. Do you think they share? Swap swords
with one another once in a while? 

Would I love to get that close to MY bishop with a sword! Turns out Father D's little blog here has put the RIGHT IDEA into the RIGHT minds of the RIGHT WING NUTS!

I've shown you mine, now whip yours out.

Meanwhile, back in Rome, Someone Else had an idea that he thought might be more worthwhile when it comes to the future of the Church . . . 

With no sword but an iPad, Papa Francesco signed up for World Youth Day 2016 in Krakow.

And instead of dressing up a bunch of home-schooled, out-on-planet-Jupiter boys in 14th century costumes around a bunch of mentally wazoooed freaks, he invited two young people representing the 21st century to offer an invitation to the Youth of the World to come celebrate WYD 2016.

Call Father D crazy . . . cuz I am . . . but not KRAZY!!!

And thank goodness, now the booze in the blender has finally rendered that frozen concoction that helps me hang on!


  1. The two new fundie controversies are RetroRate informing everyone that Cardinal Martini and the Jesuits total forced Benedict to resign and the removal of the Father Rutler vanity project in New York. For the latter, I am not against historical restorations but the parish in question looks so dark and dreary. It looks like such a sad place to attend Mass.

  2. I thought Cardinal Martini had died before Grandpa Joe resigned. Did grandpa experience an apparition of the Cardinal?

    1. Apparently RetRorate's nearest conspiracy theory is that Cardinal Martini visited Grandpa Joe right before Martini died and "convinced" him to resign.

    2. That article is actually sort of interesting, in that it suggests that Grandpa Joe (the epitome of everything Rorate readers think the Church was about) and Cardinal Martini (the Great Satan for the Rorate crowd) were actually in this together from the start In a way, it undercuts their view of Benedict far more than it says anything about Martini. Reading Francis through Benedict, indeed.

      Of course, it could all be nonsense. But I know of people that I trust that swear that Grandpa Joe is going to take the blame for lots of things that were not his fault and that, if the "Panzer Cardinal" had a weakness, it was in not being hard enough with his enemies inside the Vatican.

  3. Hi Father D! Check out the apparelled amice

  4. Your post today was beyond hilarious. I can't stop laughing. Dame Edith, the Vampires, Anathema, Auldqueen, Patrick and Kirk.... Truly inspired today. Thanks!

  5. Father D, all this krazy katlic lace and stuff is making me lose my faith. They do seem to be sincere people. Noticed that they are from the northern latitudes, so probably frozen.

  6. So Janet Darcy, does your boyfriend work in the chancery with a special assignment?

  7. Why on earth would a sword be employed in Christian worship??

  8. Does the bishop think he's the queen by knighting that fellow with that sword.

    Reminds me of a story told by Cyril Garbett (sp?). At the elevation he was shocked when two gentlemen pulled out their swords as a sign of respect.

  9. And speaking of ..... Here's the Pudgy the Lard trumpeting a retreat to Castle Keep as the Hun gather at the gates:

    NOTE TO READERS: Registration, Comments, getting LOCKED OUT

    Posted on 27 July 2015 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf

    "Medieval siege Even as you read, right now, this blog is under siege by vile spammers trying to register to post their putrid slime.

    I now have logs that show me what’s going on.

    I ratcheted up the drawbridge and released the gators into the moat. Oil is on the boil."

    1. Ratcheting drag bridges, boiling oil and all that... sounds like real work. This must be a figure of speech since it is beyond my imagination that this man Z is capable of any serious physical work.

  10. Later in the post, "Finally, ask whatever Guardian Angels assigned to help us out here." Does he really think that angels might be assigned to look over his blog? Why would they want to guard that homophobic, lazy, self-obsessed glutton and his hate posts?

  11. Actually that mass on the rock is the most appealing of the many Trentish masses I've seen pictured since SP.

    Nonetheless I seem to recall a color plate in an old history of Ireland depicting mass on the mountain during penal times. Does that mean that the above mass was as staged as all the others?

    1. It's an old photo from WWII.
      They drag this out to remind us of the good old days when people were blowing each other to bits in Europe and the Pacific

    2. I prefer this footage.

  12. Now Zzzzz is attending the Speculum Iustitia Conference. The brochure says the conference is for Civil and Canon Lawyers. I don't believe that Zero qualifies on either count. Usually people go to conferences so that they can learn things to bring back to their WORK. Zzzzzz seems to like to go to conferences, vacations, pilgrimages, R&R, etc. just to avoid working. What a lazy lout! His style of priesthood disgusts me. Get a job, Zzzzz! FAIL.

    1. Received a note from an attendee. Sharing some of it with permission.

      Father Z is fawning over the prelates and taking selfies with people, some of whom are fawning over him and his blog. Archbishop Broglio spoke this morning and skipped the second speaker Leo. At lunch now. Cardinal Burke after lunch. Young priests clamoring to kiss the Cardinal's ring between talks and in the hall, like girls used to swoon over Elvis."

    2. "Like girls used to swoon over Elvis."

      Pretty good description of young American vocations.

      Who will be serving whom?

      Not I!!! What a disaster the US Church is. Like 90% of its clueless Bishops.

  13. While His Crassness is brown nosing their Excellecies and playing false pretences at a Canon Law conference, the trickle down effect of the grovel, sniff and pander goes right to the Lard's own back door (let the reader understand). The poor wretch below has a particularly bad case of Lardolatria:

    Dear Fr Z,

    "It’s been a while since I’ve seen anyone say “Thank You” for your magnificent Priestly Vocation, so I do so, now.

    Thank You, Fr, for your dedicated life of a Priestly Vocation.
    Thank You, Fr, for your adherence to things Catholic.
    Thank You, Fr, for your support to Catholics who are “under the cosh” for various reasons from various people and various ideologies.

    May God Bless you and keep you (and all your confrères)."

    1. Can you not just see the utter contempt that Lacy-boy holds for people such as this?
      Much the same contempt that many of the people at this conference feel toward him while he is fawning over and sucking up to them.

    2. My guess based on what I have seen is that His Eminence Raymond Cardinal Burke does not mind the fawning and sucking (up or off) that anyone offers him. A young priest on his knees helps keep His Eminence The Lion, humble. ROAR baby? RO OAR!
      There is one chap present that knows. Zuhlsdorf from when he worked the English correspondence office at Ecclesia Dei who saw this blog for the first time and had a raucous laugh. Says that Zuhlsdorf is drawn to purple and red piping like moths to the flame and that kind old Cardinal Mayer tried to avoid him whenever possible.

    3. So would Zed fawn over Archbishop Cupich or does Cupich's politics and love of Vatican II protect him from blubbery careerist toadies impersonating priests?

    4. So, Z is drawn to the big purple head. Is that the little Nazi warrior helmet that it wears.
