UPDATE, ACTION ALERT AND YOUR NEWS

Sorry folks. Vladyka Eureka of Topeka does not understand the New Evangelization. He seems to want the clergy and laity working together performing the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy to the average unwashed and even the unchurched, for some reason.  He just does not understand the VITALLY important witness that blogging presbyters (and deacons too, I guess) provide for the life of the Church.  He has even attempted to curtail Father's beach outreach ! Imagine!

So here Father is, at three in the morning, typing on his smart phone this vitally important blog post.  Father sacrifices his beauty sleep for you.

ACTION ALERT......At our last fraternal gathering we had a delightful Lenten Supper of lobster tails and calamari followed by a lively discussion about the use of scruple spoons. Will you consider dear readers and readerettes, of buying such a spoon for priests in need? The gentleman who works on commission down at the Missal Leaflette Corporation has kindly offered to keep tabs on the donations (credit cards accepted) and the running list of nuts priests who need one. Come on! Dig in!

TAKING A MORAL STAND....I know some Krazies have been taking swipes at the Girl Scouts and have even passive aggressively encouraged folks not to buy their cookies! Father D will buy twice as many this year. They freeze well.

What's your news? What are the Nutters in your Neighborhood doing?

FAT TUESDAY: Mardi Gras 2016


It's Fat Tuesday bitches readers and readerettes!
Well, let's face it, every Tuesday around here is Fat Tuesday.


It has been too cold to sit on my azz around minister on the beaches. Swimmers and surfers are few these days.



So Father D has been locked in my semi eremetical cell
(aka the padded room on Four South at the Archbishop Milingo Mental Health and Marriage Encounter Institute.) Father has been given a special assignment with the ICEL (International Committee for Esperanto in the Liturgy) tasked with translating the latest edition of the Roman Missal into Esperanto. It's a useless job and Father is the most qualified to do it.

So, tomorrow begins the Great Fast. Well for you Latins it begins tomorrow. For most Eastern Catholics, it began yesterday. (If you ever have a chance to attend a Maronite Ash Monday liturgy, make sure you do. Beautiful!  But I digress.)

Eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow begins a season of penance, fasting and abstinence.

No no, Father is not giving up blogging for Lent. I can't afford to! The lean days come more and more frequently!  REMEMBER....Part of fasting is alms giving. Yes! The money you don't spend on food should be given to this priest the poor!  So fork it over. Amazon, PayPal or postal money order, please. (Seems the IRS has taken an interest in Fathers bank accounts, so let's keep the cash flowing sub voce and sub radar, eh?)
