“Mamma mia… They want to stay in the pope’s house.”
Well, Holy Father, I don’t blame them.
It’s been a bit of a rough day for this blogger, so let’s close it off with something lighthearted, like the pope releasing two white doves at today’s Angelus.
Tip of the hat to Atonement Online, where I found the video.
On my blog, I didn’t concern myself with the silly predictions about the Rapture. One, because Rapture is a Protestant concept, and two, because it’s all a bit, well, silly to go and try predicting it.
I couldn’t pass this over though:
HT to The Ironic Catholic.
Via Mulier Fortis, just to share:
Among the blogs I regularly read are Standing on my Head by Fr. Dwight Longenecker and Fr. Ray Blake’s Saint Mary Magdalen blog (both recommended reads, by the way). The former has a picture of St. John Bosco in the left side bar, (scroll down a bit) while the latter features an image of the author in a similar location (if on the other side), and I have to wonder: is there a well-hidden family connection there somewhere, between the Italian saint and Father Blake?

A funny little aside from The Bitter Pill (apparently good for more than Fr. Tim-bashing):
Cardinal Keith O’Brien, archbishop of St Andrews and Edinburgh, has agreed to perform The Hippopotamus Song at St Mary’s Metropolitan Cathedral on 28 August as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The cardinal, evidently not always the serious man in the photo, will be accompanied by what is called The Really Terrible Orchestra, consisting of “the cream of Edinburgh’s musically disadvantaged”.
The Hippopotamus Song is a gently satirical song written and performed by the musical comedy duo Flanders & Swann in the late 1950s.
A tip of the hat to E F Pastor Emeritus, and via him to the originators as well. Okay, maybe it’s a bit cynical, but it is funny.
There are ducklings in the canals of the city

I’ve come across this video in numerous blogs already, and it is pretty good, and fun. American band OK Go use a Rube Goldberg machine in the second video to their song “This Too Shall Pass”. The overly complex machine actually works in rhythm to the song.
