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.

Agents of the Taliban?


James Hetfield of the band Metallica was trying to get in to England for the Live Earth concert, only to be held up at the airport. British airport officials were concerned about his "Taliban-like beard."
I wonder what they would have made of St. Jerome?

Actually I thought the funniest part of this whole episode seemed to be that the officials didn't seem to know who Metallica were ;-)

Must not be music fans - though some would debate the musical nature of what they do.

Certainly the Latin hymn, organ bunch who frequent these Catholic blogs would not consider it music!
