I’m gonna go over there and kidnap your little ass.

How any Christian could support the death penalty, knowing full well that Christ suffered it, is beyond me. Human dignity is not optional.

I know I’m religious and all, but I can’t fucking stand when people preach at me. I get, perhaps irrationally, frustrated. So word of advice if we’re ever chatting: do not preach at me.

I am so episcopal priest material. I wear tennis shoes with literally everything

I guess I am too then. 

Did I ever tell you guys about the priest at the diocese who always wears crocs on the altar? He’s a canon lawyer, FYI.

On God, My Priest, and the Pouring of Water

When I serve as an acolyte, one of my duties is to wash the priest’s hands.

I hold a small silver bowl in the palm of my left hand with a little cloth draped over my wrist, and a small glass pitcher in the other. I hold the bowl under her hands. With the pitcher, I pour water over her hands…

Each person is a brother or sister. We don’t have enemies. If others want to see us as enemies, it is their choice, but we have no enemies. We refuse to punish those who punished us.

Always remember that at the Last Judgment, we are judged for loving him, or failing to love him, in the least person.

Sometimes I feel bad when I break liturgical ‘norms’/rules and try to follow them as best I can or reconcile my conscience. But then I realize that ‘for pastoral reasons’ covers pretty much every thing and who the hell else is going to notice anyway? Holy Week has begun!

Question: Does anyone who follows me have a tattoo? I’m researching.

Dammit, Netflix, why do you keep adding content? Don’t you know I work full-time and I’m far behind in coordinating Holy Week?

There used to be these Jehovah’s Witnesses on my way to work every morning. Some days they’d approach me and try to talk, and I’d get a little offended that I looked like such a failure I needed saving. Then on days in which they wouldn’t talk to me, I’d get a little offended that perhaps they thought I was hopeless beyond saving.
