"If was the Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster I would...."

Say a Mass of thanksgiving really quickly before the Pope came to his senses!

Around the blogosphere a few of us are championing the cause of Fr. Blake for bishop. Philip, over at carpe canem came up with a nice logo, but due to his English ways he needs a high priced American consultant to put the finishing touches on the campaign - bumper stickers for one:

How about this one:

Or this one:

Or perhaps:

Let's not forget large signage:

For Father Ray's sake, for a variety of reasons, I will forego using cheap Chinese labor in the call center:

You can read his proposed manifesto here.

Frankly, Fr. Blake, if you are reading this, hell NO, you can't have Venice. That's the problem with you guys anyway. You go off to Venice and are never seen from again, eating too much pasta fazoo and having an entirely too good of a time at the opera, despite the fact that the streets are full of water. And sorry, Philip's instincts were good. The red star stays. I've reconsidered after remembering your post regards your Trotskyist days. If you start bucking for cardinal though, I'm going to propose you to clean out the Augean stables starting with Los Angeles.

For those of you who missed why we think Fr. Blake is such a mensch, check it out here. Why don't you duffers in the Vatican get off your keisters before you stick that poor diocese with some lunkhead?

Can't stop laughing!

Wonderful! You can be my campaign manager, and when that is in the bag, we'll move onto the next job!

But what would you do if you were Archbishop, consider yourself tagged

seriously, Fr. All the things you said were PERFECT. When the campaign's done I want to be your amanuensis and help you with your autobiography. BTW, for you I'll only charge half-price. What's half of nothing? :-D Wait until you hear the jingles!

If I COULD have one wish it would be to add this prayer just before communion - it's said in the Eastern Rite - see the post
But when you're bishop you can kick that thought "upstairs" to the big guy. Maybe he'll listen to you!

What a scream!!!

This is why American elections are so much more fun than British ones!

The flying pig should be made into a campaign button. Maybe a label pin like the flag ones we see so often lately on our poles.
