Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
"Thumb and forefinger together, Father! Thumb and forefinger!":^D--Guy
Father, you do know that Teutonic Teflon is so last season!
I thought I overheard Mgr Wach mention something about renewing his subscription to some magazine or journal - it must have been Faith, I am sure it must, in fact I am certain it was.
Okay .... I note in your earlier thread that Msr. is French; so:"Pouce et index ensemble, père ! Pouce et index ! !"[Translation by Babelfish ... don't shoot me if it is grammatically (probably) incorrect!]--Guy
The sausage I ate was this long, OYYY!
Father Finigan watches on in horror as Msgr. Wach does his best impression of Beethoven playing the piano.
"Serenity now, Tim. Serenity now."
Caption: "When the Tabletistas get on your case, just close your eyes, breath in deeply, and ..... wait.... I gotta sneeze"
Father Finigen's quiet urgings to wake-up Monsignor Wach who had just dozed off mid-sentence went in vain. Soon nearby bystanders would begin to hear the distinct sound of snoring.
I *told* you to stay away from the Veal Parmigian, but Noooooo *YOU* wouldn't listen, because you're such a big shot.
"You go right home and get that proper magenta-red sash and buttons on you, or else there will be no Bushmill's for you after supper."
"That's cheating, Monsignor. You're either rock OR scissors!"
"Not this story...again..."
As the house band launches into an inspired version of Herbie Hancock's 'Rocket', Mgr Wach does his best to teach the subtleties of doing The Robot to an exasperated Fr. Tim who, unfortunately, just doesn't get it.
"Seriously, Wach, I still remain substantial when you close your eyes, no matter what Bishop Berkeley used to say."
"so The Tablet has 23,000 readers, you have 1,000,0000 - what's the problem?"
After an unexpected greeting (in a scouse accent) of "y'aw rite wach" from His Hermaneuticalness, the right reverend and dear proceeded to explain how he would be a very wealthy man if he were to receive 10p for every such greeting!
"That is not my Mass"
"I'm right here in front of you Monsignor."
Not a caption, but what's with the blue fascia and buttons?
What's the deal with that interesting powder blue that Monsignor's cassock seems to be kitted out with?
Mgr Wach: No, Fr Tim. The Bitter Pill must never be used as loo paper. Even haemorrhoids have feelings, too, you know and would resent this!Fr Tim: But, but...
Msgr Wach This is the position of the hands for "Dominus Vobiscum"Fr F "O no it isn't"
Msg Wach shows Father his impression of The Emporer" from Star Wars.
Fr Finigan frowns at the possibly occult nature of Mgr Wach's latest party trick - prophesying upcoming liberal attacks from silly women.
Fr Tim: 'That's a rotten Tommy Cooper impression, Monsignor, and you know it.'
"Yes, the one pointing at my left shoulder. He's the one who went to The Tablet.""It's all in hand, Tim. The boys are on their way round."
Elena who? I'd maker her an offer she can't refuse ...
"Yes, yours is nice, fr. Finigan, but my biretta is THIS BIG."
"Watch this, Father, I can turn the piping on my cassock from blue to red. Hummmm. Hummmmmmm. Hummmmmmmmm."10 minutes later:"Er... Mon- signor... Mon? Hello?""Hummmmmm mmmmm. One moment! Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.""..."
Mgr. Wach, "I'm telling you the fish was this big."Fr. Finnegan, "Don't exagerate."
How come his cassock is blue trimmed?NB Not a caption!
F.F. - So why exactly was a copy of the Tablet on your desk this morning?M.W. I had just taken it from the post to send to the shredder..(Gent behind MW) Oh your going to have to do better than that...
I highly doubt that salmon you caught will be enough for Friday's Fish & Chips, unless you can multiply it.
Mgr Wach: "Father, you do realise Elena Curti is outside waiting to see you"
"You said WHAT to the Tablet journalist!"Clare
Father Finigan watches on in horror as Msgr. Wach makes a haims of his Tommy Cooper impression; 'Jus like tha, jus like tha.'
Habemus already ad Dominum! Wake up!
The paino's been drinking not me!
No Mgr Wach. PLEEEEASE. Not the Max Bygraves impersonation. NO! Not now, not Here! (through clenched teeth).Too late.... " You need 'ands.... tra la la la" etc....
Fr Finigan quickly becomes irate as Msgr Wach starts humming his favorite Marty Haugen tunes.
Fr Tim, you are mixing me up with the Legionaries of Christ whose founder was of dubious morality..
Fr. Tim: Monsignor, about this recent grave matter...-what? NO, I really don't care to hear about your groovy surfing days...
''I'm allergic to amaranth!''.
"Father Finigan, now I will grab and shake you for insinuating that my robins egg blue sash and piping on my cassock is of my own invention."
Father looked on in shock as Mgr Wach demonstrated the ninja choke hold that earned him his blue belt.Fighting the Good fight had taken a new step in a new direction.
Not a comment: I'm thinking the Monsignor's fascia and trim may be blue if he happens to be a Marist or a member of a congregation who wear blue as part of their habit. I believe the Marists wear a blue capa and a blue skull cap for formal occasions and solemn liturgies.
Not a caption again. Sorry, I ought to have checked - I did not know he is the founder of Christ the King Sovereign Priest - he's wearing their colours.
"...and when people tell me ' you're not really a Monsignor!' I just have to close my eyes and breath deeply...like this."
Fr Tim:Look, I know the HF has a weakness for apple strudel, but I do NOT believe he ever eats one as big as THAT!
I think Vincenzo is the winner, "hands down!"--Guy Power
Vincenzo wins a coconut for his jpeg!
Dom - Nice one! Can't type more for chuckling!
Fr. Finigin looks on with dread as Mosignor Wach breaks out his Jimmy Cagney impersonation again.
Well, what talent! Who needs Private Eye?!Now, how about launching a Catholic satirical magazine? Everyone likes a laugh, and I'm sure it would trump the Pill's feeble circulation of 25,000 in no time. It would have to be kind and charitable, of course, and to have some serious bits as well, but to judge by the 'John the Baptist -Breaking News!' post of 24 June 2007, Fr Tim would be well able to hold his own against Ian Hislop and Richard Ingrams!
DeliaI thought The Tablet was a satirical magazine. You mean they are serious.
(To follow on from Mary Rose's caption about the fish and chips)Priest in background:- I've got a lot of old newspapers in my church that nobody reads: I'd let him have them to wrap his fish, but I fear they'd make it taste nasty :-D
NOT A CAPTIONFor those who keep on asking about Mgr Wach's blue piping...It's because he's Mgr Wach. Head honcho of the ICRSS (Institute of Christ the King etc.) who have recently become an instute of apostolic life in canonical format or whatever the English for that is... which means they are all 'canons' even though they aren't bound to choir, and have decided to wear blue bits. There are some cool photos on the net.Their sisters (ACRJCSP) do blue too.Oddly, I can't figure any Marian connection behind it, which I find slightly bemusing. I think they just like blue.
I thought you said "film, first syllable."
