Why the long face?
What will Pope Francis do with this Funeral Face?
Do you think they'll dig the Crucifixes with Christ flying off like Peter Pan out of the Vatican II museum or pull His Corpus off all together?
If the ceilings in the Sistine Chapel weren't so high, I'd volunteer to climb up and paint curled-up corners on all the faces of Jesus and the Saints.
I don't know if there is any hope for the Seven Dolors of Mary. She would look kind of silly wearing a grin with all those swords coming out of her heart.
How do you suppose they'll transform Scripture to the transfiguration of a giddy Christ?
They have to practically change every word He said and story He told.
I think we may be told to throw out our nativity sets and replace them with figurines of all different kinds of sex partners gathering with Mary, Joseph and Jesus. The story that they ran away and preserved sanctity and life of their child just doesn't jive with the stereotyping the Church has been holding onto in the modern culture and giddy diplomacy with the devil.
Pleased to meet you,
Hope you've guessed my name
Ah, but what's puzzling you is the nature of my game.
