Do I get any time off purgatory....
...for not swatting a deacon upsidethehead when after the ablutions (not thoroughly done properly) he puts together the chalice and its accoutrements in the wrong order? Chalice on bottom then pall then paten then corporal then purificator on top? [And he never does it the same way twice, and not once has he gotten it right by accident.] Did this guy never serve as an altar boy? Do they not give rubrics classes in this diocese? Does he not take note of how it's handed to him?
"Dude, it's not rocket science. Pay attention."
