Mrs. Beamish

I`ve just heard this on the radio and it made me smile.

Is it really too much to ask for a "No Peace Passing Section?" Of course, kneeling and saying a private prayer works most of the time, but then there was that twit who insisted on shaking my shoulder since she simply had to shake my hand. Judging by the way she slide down the pew during the rest of the service, the glare I gave her must have been most convincing. ;)

I love that one! Great to hear it again.

Quite brilliant. Good job Mrs Beamish wasn't at Rainton Meadows the other week.

Where does she stand on the Global Warming scam, and on Gordo's Class War? We should be told!

I watched this some months ago and sent it to my parish priest. I didn't receive a reply! lol Of course, watching it again today I then went to the sidebars and spent a great half hour watching Not the Nine O'Clock News. "Hymns of Praise" was the best. I might send that to my pp also. lol

On the one hand I have sympathy with the parishioner who hates to see the liturgy dumbed down into a lot of silliness while on the other it reminds me of thhe various mulieres fortes I have met who oppose anything new.

I enjoyed it when I first saw it some days ago at a men's club, as did the other 99 men present.

Better still is the St Mary's Cathedral bookshop (run by Pauline Nuns, of course) in Newcastle advertising a 'Visit from Santa Claus Saturday 5th December' in the Northern Cross. (Fortunately the Northern Cross only appeared in churches on Sunday 6th December.)

Fr Michael Brown said...

That sounds like an interesting men`s club. Thanks for reminding me about the Northern Cross. I have something to pick up on from the new issue.

Father, I think the less we know about Richard's 100 Men's Club the better. Anyway, I understand the P2 Lodge was meant to be secret. Of course, it might be the Flat Earth Class War Society referred to by our esteemed leader the other day.

I didn't see Fr Brown liturgically dancing at Rainton Meadows, unless you were holding the giant balloons.

!569 Rising, you are mistaken! There are more than 100 men in 'my' club but unlike having to go to Mass each week they are not obliged to attend every meeting and the others were no doubt engaged in their various nafarious activities that day. I am sure they would all have enjoyed the sketch and will no doubt have another opportunity to do so. Meanwhile, I am still unsure of how 'over 700 people gathered for The Event 09' while it is said that 'some 3500 young people (don't you just love the expression "young people" who, presumably never grow old, let alone mature)...packed out the Rainton Meadows Arena'. Were there two different events taking place? Goodness me!
