Send in the Clowns

Time for my annual rant about people who seek to mock Holy Church by dressing as priests, monks, sisters, cardinals, popes, Catholic schoolkids on Halloween!

May the costume you wear as mockery convert your blasphemous heart to the true expression of loving, honoring and serving God as found thru the Church He founded!

In other words, may you become Roman Catholics!!!!

Booo!!!!

I know that scared some of you. Think about it.

If it's true that "clothing makes the man" and Catholics wear certain outward signs of their Faith to reflect their inner state so, too, may the "costumes" work on you. Yes, even YOU, CINO (Catholic in Name Only)

It's also a great time to post this because Adoro is out of town and her and I end up arguing about this every year. Not that I'm scared! I can still take her!!!

Cathy , clothing doesn't always make the man. I have seen some breathtaking ass-holes in some gorgeous suits ,and yet others dressed in crappy frocks with brown hoods ,and with silly looking mended spots. They wore sandals ,and had really, REALLY ugly feet showning, and they were awesome men.
I agree with your distaste for halloween. When my children were little I didn't take them trick or treating, while their friends did go . Now I take my younger children, because I can't take this world entirely from them.

I am firm about,
No tattoos, no piercings, no check fraud, no sleeping around, etc...

So I relented for Halloween. I think Halloween is Demonic,and I agree with you . I hate it.

Hey, people don't pass out the crappy candy either, imagine that your giving candy to Jesus, and he doen't like fruit chews, gummy bears,pretzels, pencils, or toothbrushes,(Dentists house) or pixie sticks. Jesus likes chocolate people.
I am gonna post this on my blog.

Belinda: Chocolate is a sign that God loves us! :-)

The rest of you: Just like men...I'm surprised Vin isn't having all the guys over to watch female mud wrestling on his wide-screen TV. Oh, wait, that was last weekend-sorry. *meow*

Cathy, then God must love me best because I ate practicaly a whole box of chocolates Sunday. I want to reclaim any calories spent working out at the YMCA with my friends.
I can't figure out why I have only lost 3/4 of a pound for 3 weeks worth of work?

Hey,Meet my "Y" friends.

You really shouldn't wear your leather at the "Y" ,because your too squeeky, and you will frighten the children.

Gette, er, Mimi, er what costume are you in now? LOL! Anyway, my "problem" is those who have the attitude of wearing the "costumes" as a form of ridicule, mockery or scorn against Holy Church. I don't have a problem with kiddies dressed up as their favorite Saint if their reason for doing so is respectful.

For myself, I'll be dressing up this Halloween as a totally flawed non-sainted member of the Church Militant. This is my usual costume. It's cheap and easy for me.
