View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

Clap for the Wolfgang

Maybe someone at the Vatican had a sense of humor.

Today is Halloween – true – but it’s also the feast day of St. Wolfgang.

He was a monk, missionary, bishop, and educator in Germany in the 10th century.

Among his pupils was St. Henry the Emperor.

Henry, eh? As in Henry Frankenstein?

He also reformed his diocese – including two “disorderly nunneries.”

Scary thought – disorderly nuns. That in itself probably qualified him for sainthood!

Disorderly nunneries ... the mind boggles and then thinks of Sir Galahad trapped by the nuns in Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
