I’m sorry – but I couldn’t resist.

‘pickle pepper faced’????
May we expect the musical accompaniment soon, Gertrude, by Messrs Inwood, Haugen & that British lady whose name I forget for the moment?
Since we’re having a bit of fun, could I post this? The students of the Salesians’ Don Bosco Technical Centre in Samoa? The Australian Salesians expanded their Australian province in the last few decades to include the Anglophone small island nations of the South Pacific, such as Samoa, Fiji and Mr Fisher’s Aotearoa.
We ought not forget either that the Bishop of Rome was educated at a similar Salesian facility in Buenos Aires.
A bit of pelvic movement at moments there, suggestive of the possibility that Margaret Mead was right or that Samoan youth kind of liked Margaret Mead’s new ideas.
Wherever the Catholic sun doth shine
There is always laughter and good red wine.
At least I’ve always found it so.
[The boys resemble very much our local Malay boys – they are in fact probably quite closely related, though they (the Samoans) would appear to go for a work out more often than our lads.]
Thank you, Gertrude, I think a lot of us needed that!
Wonderful GC. Thanks all. I wasn’t too sure about it – but what the heck. As we are now into Advent a little nonsense is good before our actions turn toward our preparation for the coming of Our Saviour. May you all have a prayerful and blessed Advent.
I draw the line at Paul Inwood though. We will all be needing mercy for the coming year as he has been asked to compose the music 😦
I made an act of contrition after enjoying the beautiful litany, Gertrude, but I must admit it was a little harder to complete than usual. (I think it was ‘the firm purpose of amendment’ bit, as to this particular sin, that I found a bit tricky 😉 .)
The main beauty of this litany is that it is magnificently “open-ended” and may be added to virtually every single week (day?). But let us pray the Bishop of Rome returns home in one piece from Africa.
As for musical arrangements for the litany, how about the Saint Louis Jesuits – are they still around? They must be quite ancient by now if they haven’t jumped ship already.
If the Saint Louis Jesuits have already split up, could we perhaps contact the Salesians in Samoa and commission an opus, to be put together and performed by their lads at the Don Bosco Technical Centre, as in 3 above this^?

Francis fan, natch. More as personality, than pope. He passes the acid test, ‘Would you go on holiday with this man?’
