    Do they come in tartan for the Scottish Presbyterians?

    I also understand that T.J.MONX carries a new line of self flagelation whips for those who scourge themselves. Their catalog shows they are made from the latest pain free materials. Kind of like what nerf balls are made from and tipped with little pieces of spounge shaped like sharks teeth and sharp stones so they simply give something like a tickling massage. Why be uncomfortable during your time of penance?

    Would the magesterium approve a Tartan Plaid, and are these Scottish Presbyterians flying to Rome on the wings of the Emergent Church?

    Errol, I wasn’t thinking that deeply, (if at all!); you may well have a point!

    Cool (er)

    I just hope your friends are not flying to Rome with the emergents, Helen. That is a road of no return. Remember all ye Presbyterians -SOLA SCRIPTURA!!! This goes for Baptists, too.

    If they came in vertical stripes, they’d make you look thinner.

    Years ago, during a hot spell, when I was still in the Church of Rome (thank God for saving me from that), I attended a ‘mass’ in Rochester, Kent. The building had a window behind the ‘priest’ and the sun was shining in through it. He wore no Roman liturgical overgarment, merely an alb (ankle-length white thing). The sunlighting made it quite clear that under such alb he had nothing but a pair of shorts… ewwwwww….

    I don’t think I can bare it anymore.

    Aww, give it a rest Errol; you’re preaching to the converted! 😉 (not that I was ever Roman!)
    – That’ll teach me to make whimsical comments off topic…

    Caveat emptor!

    Helen, I checked the archives and thought, Jig for Joy was funny. I had not seen that one before. It conjured up a vision before my eyes and I had to leave a comment. But then again, maybe I need to get another eye exam.

    …and if you order within the next 15 minutes, we’ll include a second robe free….and also “breathable” monk slippers….all for the low price of $19.99 and we’ll throw in a “summer fabric” prayer shawl, sham wow prayer cloth!

    My father (a now-retired Anglican vicar) was once given (by a canon) a silk cassock that was perfect for the summer months (and didn’t suffer from the transparency issue noted by Dominic)

    But I thought they were called “fryers” for a reason.

    This is for the monk that stunk. 😉

    The “Monk of Sundaes” side-promotion nets the purchaser of the summer frock a free G.C. to Baskin-Robbins for a cooling treat.

    Man, ’tis hot for all of us this summer. I heard that it is so hot at 2nd. & Main that one day this week at the League of Tyndale they made fried egg sandwitches for the crew and they set the frypan on the sidewalk to fry the eggs. They were cooked in half the time it takes them on the stove. And when they put the coffeepot on the sidewalk to heat the water it got so hot that they had to put ice in their coffee to bring it down to a drinkable temperature. But the saddest part of the story is, it is so hot in Gazingstock that the ink evaporates right off the platens of the printing presses. That is why we haven’t heard from them since June 8 when this hot streak began.
    I wonder what the Twin Theologians might have to say about this here heat wave. If they have nothing to say we maybe should ask Joel O., Ricky W., and Benny H., and as a last resort revert back to Al G. YUK!!!
