Too Funny...

Please, check out the website for

In response to the Catholics for a Changing Church website,, a vastly more interesting and amusing campaign has been started called Geriatrics for a Changing Church. The home page really hits the spot.

Geriatrics for a Changeling Church, earlier known as Middle-aged Catholics Trying to Re-live the Sixties, began as a bunch of professional whingers who didn't like being told what to do by the Pope after being encouraged by various liberation-theology cranks to think that Vatican II meant you'd be able to do what you like and there'd be no such thing as sin any more. They were soon joined by assorted trouble-maker ex-priests and lesbian nuns in civvies.

Nobody sensible listened to them, so they started to meet among themselves, talk bollocks, and ignore the fact that no-one was interested. All along it has been a thorn in the side of any parish priest unfortunate enough to have a nest of these vipers (or even one or two) on his manor. Despite a lot of grandiose hogwash about 'a new way of being church', there's nobody involved in this outfit under 70. Nevertheless, we're still trying to foist on younger generations the "Changeling Church" of the Freemasons and Crypto-Protestants who hi-jacked the legacy of Vatican II. Unfortunately, they don't seem to be buying it. But we can't accept we lost the argument after all this time, so we'll keep going as long as they keep bringing us our pills. Oh no, I've been again. Can someone call the nurse?

Just to clarify the group's status, the anonymous author of the fun-poking site has reminded us that it is, 'In no way related to Catholics for a Changing Church. No way at all. Definitely not.' Victor Meldrew chairs this satirical website dedicated to the enthusiasm of a group of elderly Catholics with an unhealthy devotion to Paul Inwood and indebtedness to an age that gave us the pill, the Beatles and a sudden explosion in the recreational use of LSD.

It has been said before and it will be said again that the Benedictine project of liturgical renewal, liberating the Latin Mass from the shackles of appalling guitar strumming and equally appalling loud drumming, amid the cackles of gnostic men and women more interested in their star signs than the one and only Light of the World, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is a movement particularly attractive to men and women in their youth.

Introibo ad altare Dei, ad Deum qui laetificat juventutem meum.
I will go to the Altar of God. To God Who gives joy to my youth.

H/T to a friend.

Now! Now! It's wicked to mock the afflicted.

I know. I was a little uncomfortable with that bit!
