Holy Week Pause

When Triduum comes to the door
Take time to look at the floor.
If myst'ry does keep
Its power so deep,
Then nothing can say any more.

Pope Attacked by NYT et al.

A Nope for Pope

Pope Benny the media must smear;
That's even if facts must appear
Out of Hitchens of course
And from "Cath'lics" off course.
Just how does this Pope rouse such fear?

Archdiocese of Baltimore Challenge Abortion Notification Law

Archdiocese of Baltimore, clinic challenge abortion notification law

On page one, the phone book is covered
With pictures of women - I discovered.
But NARAL needs more;
With Mikulski they'll score:
CPC's have more clients uncovered.

"Uncovered by what?" you may ask:
A service CPC's take to task.
But the clinics said, "No!"
All you terrorists must show
A sign that will make girls aghast (and bring them to us).

(CPC=crisis pregnancy center)

Msgr Brennan testifies at Montgomery County (MD) Council against similar law as above

Modernism is Supernatural

The Real Problem Beneath the Pedophilia

Part of the above article for background of poem:
The secular press are fond of saying that the child abuse problem is caused by the demand for priestly celibacy. There is an underlying cause, but it's not that. The underlying cause is that too many Catholics have lost the plot completely. For the last forty years the church has been infected with modernism, and the key tenet of modernism is that there is no such thing as the supernatural. What you see is what you get.
Another puzzle piece for the poem:
Children shortly after birth think that when someone leaves their sight, they no longer exist. When they come back into sight, the person is perceived as coming back into existence.

The crisis that's hitting the Church
Just comes from the mind giv'n 'round birth.
If my Mom's out of sight,
I just might be "So bright!" [Read, "So big!]
Since I think that she's just left the Earth.

To My Old Irish Boss

You said that all Irish are smarts
And Ir'land's got state of all arts.
But to keep them all home,
The world made it known
That beer would just make them all farts.

His first joke I heard him utter on the job:
Do you know why they invented beer? (No.)
So the Irish wouldn't take over the world!

To Sue for Government Money

Abortion Coverage in the Senate Health Care Bill and here

Since the Court made the government pay
For abortion: the States had no say.
If a women it's due,
Can I go and sue
a. For a sex change I need right away?

b. For my hand that's so in the way?

c. For bionic arm muscles today?

Political Lament

Late Jack said he won't call the Pope;
On politics: he sure was no dope --
His clan was supported.
The future he sported
Some Cath'lics more slip'ry than soap.

Obama's Healthcare Law Passes

Obama to sign health bill, take it on the road

The public is now forced to pay;
Abortion won't soon go away.
Many states poised to sue:
Will the tenth get its due?
Obama can lengthen his C.V.

(C.V. (pronounced say-vay) = resumé)

Public Catholic's Preposterous Pronouncement

Pelosi Invokes 'St. Joseph the Worker' to Pass Pro-Abortion Health Bill

Cath'lics in sight of the masses
Have got to go put on sunglasses.
When the sun gets so bright,
And the moon gets too light,
Beware of misspoken trespasses.

Catholic Nuns v. Bishops in Obama Healthcare Battle

Nuns Backstab Bishops on Health Care, Demand Bill's Passage (

Some nuns think the bill is a winner.
And if you're against, you're a sinner.
"It's pro-life," we have said.
To Christ we have wed.
We've had good Obama to dinner.

CCB* is against all abortion.
The bill: its got quite a large portion
Of blood money it's true.
Bart Stupak is blue;
Most Donkeys do know the distortion (of extortion behind closed doors).

Non-Catholics perhaps are amused;
Faithful Catholics are utterly bemused.
If Christ was preborn,
Would the nuns just adjourn
And ignore their just shepherds to be used?

*USCCB=United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

Hawaii and The 'Birthers'

Hawaii considering law to ignore Obama 'birthers'.

The 'birthers' are told to "beware":
Stop being so hard and unfair.
In Obama we trust,
Now don't make a fuss.
He lives in each heart; don't you care?

Cathorick Lives!

The Feast of Saint Patrick is here!
Why isn't there any more beer?
Since I'm sober this minute,
I'd thought I'd begin it.
Why don't I hear one bleeping cheer?

I thought it would do me some good
To write lim'ricks: I thought I just should.
It might take some time:
I think I'll try wine.
They say that in my part of the 'hood.

Just come back each day for a minute.
It takes much more time to begin it.
The Catholics may groan,
The Protesters may moan,
And the Druids won't come back save a nip.
