Cleansing Fire

Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

Straight From the Pope’s Mouth

I?m not a man who constantly thinks up jokes. But I think it?s very important to be able to see the funny side of life and its joyful dimension and not to take everything too tragically. I?d also say it?s necessary for my ministry. A writer once said that angels can fly because they don?t take themselves too seriously. Maybe we could also fly a bit if we didn?t think we were so important.

This is why you will see the occasional dose of Catholic “snarkiness” here. We have yet to hear from anyone whose soul wept upon seeing this blog. Until that day, I am what I am and it is what it is.

Remember – we mustn’t take ourselves too seriously. The Church, yes, take that seriously. Ourselves and those among us – that we can enjoy, so long as we do not lose any souls. In addition to the “you made my soul bleed” email, I’m also waiting for a “You made me convert to Catholicism” email. Anyone care to oblige?
