New Vatican dicastery to be created?

"Will that be 'to go'?"

Rumour has it that, in an effort to help speed up communion lines, a new department will be created at the Vatican. The Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Dieting and Hasty Communion will promote 'take-out' and other progressive liturgical practices aimed at attracting cafeteria Catholics. Newly minted Cardinal Kevin Farrell, Prefect of the Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, is said to be elated at the prospect he'll be able to have a little taste of home so near to his workplace.

Fast? Food?

An anonymous source has disclosed that discussions are taking place to consider offering the McHost at all Vatican liturgies.

Satire aside, Saint Rognvald (Ronald): pray for us.

Any comment that 1) offends human dignity and/or 2) which constitutes an irrational attack on the Catholic Faith will not go unchallenged.

We are not just material beings, but spiritual persons with a need for meaning, purpose, and fulfillment that transcends the visible confines of this world. This longing for transcendence is a longing for truth, goodness, and beauty. Truth, goodness, and beauty are called the transcendentals of being, because they are aspects of being. Everything in existence has these transcendentals to some extent. God, of course, as the source of all truth, goodness, and beauty, has these transcendentals to an infinite degree. Oftentimes, He draws us to Himself primarily through one of these transcendentals. St. Augustine, who was drawn to beauty in all its creaturely forms, found the ultimate beauty he was seeking in God, his creator, the beauty “ever ancient, ever new.”―Sister Gabriella Yi, O.P.
