Watching the coverage of the Pope’s upcoming resignation I can’t help but smile a little in thinking how this particular pontiff is going to be a teacher right up to the end. If this morning’s newscasts are any indication, the next few weeks will be full of nattering nabobs breathlessly speculating on whether this means the Church will finally fall in line with their pet causes such as gay marriage, women’s ordination, contraception, abortion, et al. And then I’ll smile as the truth smacks them in the forehead. Clever, Pope, very clever.
Even so, the coverage is bound to get tiresome at times. So, when you need a break, be sure to check in around here where we’ll be keeping things light as usual. In fact, the review for Gargoyles will be up later today. But for the moment, here’s a picture of Godzilla playing a guitar. Enjoy.
Thank you. It's not that I doubt the Holy Spirit will guide this conclave and future Pope just as He has since the start, but it's that I don't know if I have the strength to listen to all the hatred-poorly-disguised-as-news that I know is in store.
I think I'm going to make Godzilla playing guitar my desktop wallpaper until conclave is over.
My favorite word after the next Pope is elected will be "schadenfreude".
Feeling a little less sad now that I'm picturing Godzilla playing "Smoke on the Water".
The Big G's always good for a smile, isn't he?
