HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY ?



You know folks, Father D has an anniversary around this time too. Yes the blog was launched at the end of November after the retirement of Father's long time mentor and short time blogger The Right Reverend Monsignor S. Guy Blathering, P.A. KHS. Monsignor Guy has been living out his retirement at the Bishop Vinny De Jim Beam Home for the Bewildered in the Diocese of MeTouching, named in honor of the very prelate that ordained him, the third Ordinary of MeTouching.

To make a short story long, Father celebrates the anniversary of this blog whenever he damn well pleases. My blog. My rules. Deal with it.

This year Father has chosen December 10th. Yes. Today.  Congratulations, gifts, adulations, gifts, your thanks and GIFTS are somewhat appreciated.  (Especially ca$h and items from Father's Amazon Wishlist. )

Why the 10th of December you might be asking? Well one of Father's best pieces appeared that day. Father Was a Flautist.  Warning. NSFW.  One of Father's most shared and laughed at posts from of old.

Have a beer and a piece of cake in celebration.  Or not. It is the Nativity Fast or Advent some of you call it, afterall.

Cheers!

  1. Squirrel grippers just love the skin flute. No wonder then that the Big Gripper himself had such a long term attachment to that particular 'instrument'.
    This one's for The Gripper! Prosit.

  2. I was under the impression that the praise spoken at the end of the Rosary "Hail Holy Queen" was in honor of the mother of Jesus. Looking at Johnny Z I wonder if it's not an homage to him in a lace dress.

    1. I've always loved the image of Fulton Sheen climbing the altar steps to sense the altar during a Byzantine liturgy on the Feast of the Assumption while the choir is singing the troparion "where are you acsending now O Queen."

  3. Rev'd Mother claims that Fr. Z is important. How can she refrain from laughing just like her ancient counterparts?

    1. All this talk of communion for those in 'irregular situations' of matrimony have Cunniwicke so aroused he might have to wipe a 'spittle flecked nutty' off his beard.

  4. Lacy-boy is really pulling the schizo act today.
    He is showing John Wayne movie clips in one post and then rhapsodizing on and on about the various shades of rose fabric that there are.
    The guy is just insane.

    2. When a man is insecure with his own sexuality on a day that he wraps himself and pink vestments he needs to balance it off by demonstrating his masculinity watching John Wayne films.

  5. Tomorrow is the feast of our Lady of Guadalupe, Empress of Mexico and All Indigenous Peoples.

    I can't wait to see Zzzzzzzz whitewash the feast, and (likely) bitch about the Archdiocese of Mexico City using blue vestments for the Masses at the (stunningly beautiful) basilica.

  6. Yes, the BIG DAY when the priest wears ROSE (NOT PINK! Har Har Har). That joke is comedy (harvest) gold! Well, goldenrod to be precise.

    John Wayne tossing boys in the pool, those Royal Navy fantasies involving loads of able seamen, and WAY too much time devoted to rose colored silk. Oh and he never misses an opportunity to plug those boozy monks. Now that their monastery was damaged in the earthquake, they need to sell as much beer as possible to pay for the professional photographers who are always on hand to capture their every moment. Remember to buy a copy of their beefcake wall calendar because monks need money.

    And another prick-by-prick moment: more men and boys in dresses than people in the pews.
    Here are the new rose vestments in action. The cope is used for the Asperges. Lots of people were late today because of the simply dreadful weather, winter storm. The Asperges was a little thin, but more arrived along the way.

    Father Jim chimes in! But he doesn't escape without a Zildo red pen correction. Every rose has its thorns!

    Violet vestments. Theme was “mission” since it was the Religious Retirement appeal. Homily was by a woman [No, it wasn’t.] religious from the large mother house in the parish. It was outstanding and gave the assembly a welcome break from yours truly. [No comment! o{];¬) ]

    My guess is that Boy Wonderbread is denying the possibility of a woman giving a homily(?). You see, the important thing to remember about homiletics is that it's a gendered art.
    Remember him snapping at the comment linking to vestments made domestically? Haha! That annual con to Gammarelli was in jeopardy! By the way, Gammarelli made the costumes for Jude Law in The Young Pope television series. Jude Law is the thinnest cleric I've seen in a while. Wait a minute, if Gammarelli makes the costumes, are they costumes? or real vestments? Mind. Blown. Time to ASK FATHER!

    1. Deaconette preaches all the time, and not just on her blog. Ask her husband: her thoughts on the Gadarene Demoniac and Wet Towels On the Bedspread are a triumph of exigetics that have a nearly seraphic momentum in terms of their ascent.

    2. "Homily was by a woman [No, it wasn’t.] religious from the large mother house in the parish."

      this is a fact claim that could easily be ascertained.

  7. "Lastly, we priests – most of us anyway – are not precious tender snowflakes who need affirmation and hugs and puppies and coloring books. I won’t say that we need a drubbing all the time, but we can take it when its handed out."


    Isn't this the same zeppelin who needs to be swaddled in lace and bans anybody who speaks against him on his blog? It seems to me that that is the absolute definition of "special snowflake".

    1. Special snowflakes don't always know they're special. But they are unique, just like everyone everybody else.

  8. Lacy-boy is having a busy time booting off all of the respondents to his post about clerical garb. Touchy touchy, there Missy.
    Pope Francis must have had this Father-ette in mind when he made fun of the clerics playing "look at me" dressup.

      ACTION ITEM! NEW PROJECT – SATURNOS FOR CLERICS!
      Posted on 13 December 2016 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
      The Project will work along the same lines as the Biretta Project.
      Mr. Hastreiter informs me that there are a couple options for your saturno. There are different kinds of Roman hats: woven straw for hot weather (they come in white for when you wear your white cassock), felt (like most normal hats, and pressed fur (often rabbit – warmer – rather shiny as in the photo, above).

    3. The Tradistanis have surely missed the point. Obsolete (eighteenth century) clerical apparel is absurd enough in itself. Wasn't the pope focusing on the preening deportment of that young cleric, hence the (albeit gender stereotyping) comment about women priests?

      Delete
    4. Again, any excuse for a money making exercise - last time it was to supply silk birrettas to folks (seminarians and simple priests) who in the olden days were not allowed to wear silk ones. Talk about delusions of grandeur!

  9. ASK FATHER: Holy water vapor pressure

    Father, I have a question...
    When I enter our church on a cold day, my eyeglasses become foggy as moisture condenses against my cold glasses. The stoup is on the wall directly above a radiator the heat from which no doubt raises the holy water temperature and thus the holy water vapor pressure. Therefore, the ambient moisture is holier than on days when the heat is off - grace builds upon nature.
    Are my fogged-up glasses more blessed on days like this?

    1. Correct response to the water vapor person:
      "You are bananas and have a Merry Christmas."

    2. "Are my fogged-up glasses more blessed on days like this?"

      yes. yes they are.

    3. ...if the radiator is fired with oil turn the heat down with aplumb for our boys in Iraq.
      Holy Water is a sacramental so it depends on the holiness of the user.

  11. I noticed Zilch and all the snowflakes were so offended by Pope Francis's funny story about the priest playing dressup and looking in the mirror and the Msgr saying that he thought the Church didn't ordain women. Poor little traditional snowflakes treated unfairly by the Church (does not feel to good when the shoe is on the other fit) - but empathy is something that his hard for narcissistic sociopaths to muster - how long must the Catholic community suffer with the Catholic Elmer Gantry

  12. Lacy boy is really getting his Jollies off doing his repeater routine of more disingenuous dross from the G&T binge swilling hairynose Wombat from Oxford secondary college. Both these princes of entitlement doing a chorus, denouncing 'Clericalism' of all things.
