By Request

Oh those wacky Anglos,

Anglos at prayer:

So, the Anglos are working hard to bring men back to church, eh?

Check out this site - funny how a demanding religion like islam has many bekievers yet the softer the christian churches get the less believers they have.

Like your blog I check it out every week or so.

"fewer" believers.

"Fewer" is the adjective describing independent countable things. "Less" describes uncountable quantities, collective amounts, and degree.

as in:
"The fewer religious believers we have in the Catholic Church, the less the secular governments will feel obliged to listen to Christian political demands".


please examine the commbox rules you will find half way down the sidebar.

It's like a church service from Logan's Run BUT WITHOUT EXPLOSIONS so much less cool. <-- note proper use of "less." - Karen

Alas, that there are fewer cool people these days.

It takes all kinds...

I'm sure we could find many many RC parishes which engage in similar silliness. But we can also, thankfully, find RC parishes which nearly mirror St. Clements in Philadelphia.

They've got nothing on Cardinal Mahony's annual Religious Education Congress. Now THAT's the real deal. Dancing girls, banners galore, Kool-Aid pitchers and wicker baskets on the altar, and more multicultural liturgies than you can shake a stick at.

All that entertainment and a bunch of heretical speakers to boot. And the Vatican looks on and does...nothing.

Great blog, by the way!

Late commenting, because I gave up reading blogs (mostly) during Lent.

I decided to go to my son's high Anglican church this evening for the Vigil, rather than weep through my own parish's offering as I did last year. No liturgical dancers or weird chasubles; just a parish priest who jokes and laughs his way through all ritual (I suspect he feels profoundly uncomfortable with anything which demands a loss of self-consciousness). I think it was at the point where he was walking down the nave with the holy water brush and telling us that his aim was to get us all completely soaked (the altar servers were giggling like mad) that I finally broke and vowed that I would never attend another Vigil which he was conducting.

It's not just the Anglos...
