SLAP – Survivors of Liturgical Abuse in Parishes

November 10th, 2009, Promulgated by Choir

SLAP is an international organization trying to recover some semblance of sanity in parishes with regard to the sacred Liturgy.Join up and tell your story.;=nf

From Father Z’s blog, here is a parody on “Gather Us In”

Here in this place, our comfortable parish,
All of the statues carried away,
See in each face a vacuous visage,
Brought here by guilt or by R.C.I.A.

Gather us in, by Beemer or Hummer,
Gather us in, so we can feel good,
Come to us now in this barren Zen temple,
With only a shrub and an altar of wood.

We are the young, our morals a mystery,
We are the old, who couldn?t care less,
We have been warned throughout all of history,
But we enjoy this liturgical mess.

Gather us in, our radical pastor,
Gather us in, our unveiled nun,
Call to us now, with guitars and bongos,
Hang up your cellphones and join in the fun!

    No one has ever asked about the parish from whence our illustrios Sr. Joan came.

    As a surivor, I can attest to the truth of this little ditty. 🙁

    There are sparks of life here…

    God Bless.
