  • 60`s 70`s 80`s…….When public television showed something universally appealing, that could have only meant one thing…pledge drive!!!.......time to do a bit of a song and dance for the great unwashed, in order to bolster the coffers

     

    I was reminded of this, for some reason, when I came across this headline this morning

Yeah.  It all started when the priest turned around and began speaking in English.

The standards in most things have dropped. which has resulted in a lack of respect and discipline.

LOL!  Yes, but it was said with conviction and we all complied.  These days no one knows what to do during mass. 

We all follow those parishioners who occupy the front row. 

If they get up and go to the john, we all go there.
