Hard for sins to slip your mind!

I don't know about you, but I LOVE looking at "other people's parishes." Even in otherwise unremarkable churches, there's usually a little something to catch the eye. I was in Holy Spirit, San Diego yesterday, and I found these 7 guys pretty remarkable. I've never seen anything like this in any other church. This gang of 7 was just outside the confessionals.




From top left to bottom: Envy, Pride, Gluttony, Lust, Greed, Sloth and Anger - the names are carved on them in English, and the names are given in Spanish, just so the parishioners who speak that don't shine them on. I guess Hispanics don't get Angry though. A far cry from Doc, Grumpy, Dopey, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy and Sneezy.

There was also this little sign to accompany the crew:
