Me? A Bishyp?
Hey everybody! Sorry for being a bad 'blogger, but some really cool stuff has been happening and since I can't tell you about it in the homilies anymore, I suppose I better get to 'blogging. Like I always say: Keep on Truckin!
You won't believe this, but I called the Diocese office and apparently me and Fr. Chad of SSLI are the only two priests who have announced our candidacy for Bishop of Knoxville. The person at the "Chancery" tried to tell me that Bishops don't get elected, but I know they were just trying to keep me out of the race. I was a little worried about competition from the pastor around the corner, since we both attract the same demographic, but apparently he's busy and won't be running for Bishop.
So it's a two man race - just me and Fr. Chad. I think we can take 'em! After all, SOV2 has a lot more people than Fr. Chad's parish.
Just think! If I get to be Bishyp, then I can ordain whoever I want! Plus, SOV2 would get to be a cathedral! Just think: "The Cathedral of the Catholic Faith Community of Spirit of Vatican 2!" I am super-psyched.
Apparently there's some other things you have to do when you're a Bishyp such as you have to go to Rome to argue with the Pope and also you have to do "Confirmations" and then there's something with oil that I don't quite get.
On an unrelated note, please be patient with my friend Peevee Rajendajendan. He has never really gotten over the shock of eating H. Robert Williams' brain, and he's acting rather unusually lately. Yesterday he went on and on about wanting to write our mission statement. He's really getting on the nerves of Kip and the OCP guys & gals.
A couple more things:
Hey Ché... I hate to say this, but you're not being very church.
Agent Smith... please stop harassing Dr. Al Fakkir. Firearms are a part of his personal expression of faith and also a valid part of his culture. Haven't you seen those videos of all those muslims jumping around and throwing rocks and shooting things? It's just like firecrackers for them - totally harmless. If you would just leave the muslims in peace, then everybody would be fine.
