Prayer At The Prytania
Hi all, I have been away from the keys most of today out running errands to prepare for my return to Budapest next week. A priest friend sent me this while I was away, and man, it is something else. It’s been a long time since I invoked the Prytania Theater, where Ignatius J. Reilly used to go to see movies, but this Baby Boomer Catholic priest calls for it, and then some. Behold:

Hey, at least he’s not speaking Latin and facing east!
Seriously, I bet Father Jerry is quite popular with his flock. It is very hard to grasp, though, how the Pope will let the Father Jerrys do these California dreamin’ liturgies, but finds the Tridentine mass intolerable.
