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."

Purgatory? You're already a saint for showing such restraint!

If I get "saint" it will be because I won't flip out and axe pick murder the pastor for murdering the part after the memorial acclaimation.

And he's a deacon? What deacon school did he attend? You need to teach him properly--sheesh!

How about you put little tiny numbers in the corners to help this idiot??

Tara, I think it was one of those things off the back of a matchbook covcr.

Adrienne, don't tempt me!!! As it was I gather the unstable set and when I put it on the credence table I "Righted it."
