    On the tube today, a man came up to me to start a conversation. He made small talk, a lonely man talking about the weather and other things. I tried to be pleasant and accommodating, but my head hurt from his banality. I almost didn’t notice it had happened, but I suddenly threw up all over him. He was not pleased. And I couldn’t stop laughing.

    Sorry, very tired.

    Had the pleasure of seeing him last year. Your selection was one of my favorites. Highly recommend it.

  4. Theological aesthetics is redeemed! Alleluia!

    They actually do have a song, though: It’s called ‘Imagine’.

    “Catholics dress up for Mass/ Listen to Gregorian Chant.”

    • Flannery O'Connor's Cocktail Service says:

      It’s hateful stereotypes like these that keep the Church from really engaging with the youth of today. Hey Steve, Vatican II was 50 years ago. Today’s Catholics dress as the spirit moves them, and sing “Be Not Afraid” and “One Bread, One Body.” We are Church!

        ‘As We Gather’
        Copyright 1986 by OmniCatholicProducts

        VERSE 1:

        Gather ’round, for all are able,
        Take the wine and broken bread.
        Leave your fears upon the table,
        Pick up peace and love instead.

        CHORUS:

        As we gather at this table
        Sharing in this special meal,
        We sing stories, dreams, and dances,
        Tell each other how we feel.

        VERSE 2:

        Put aside all fear and anger
        As we open wide the door.
        We are justice for the stranger,
        We are judgment for the poor.

        CHORUS.

        VERSE 3:

        Yesterday’s a passing shadow,
        Stained-glass prisons of the past.
        Face the sunrise of tomorrow:
        We the Church are free at last.

        CHORUS.

        VERSE 4:

        Praise the Planet, praise our Mother,
        Brother Sun and Sister Moon.
        Let us labor with each other,
        Changing Earth to Heaven soon.

        CHORUS.
