You're making me giggle again.

The nephew of a laicised Old Catholic Bishop patted me on the head once when I was a kid? Does that count?

I've always been amused by the charts of apostolic succession for assorted "Independent Catholic" movements, especially as there tends to be significant disagreement regarding who ordained who.

I saw the passion play in Oklahoma when I was a child and the guy who was playing St. Peter waved at me afterwards. That should count for something.

I've noticed a change from last week to this week. You should design an Orthograph depicting the correlation between how hard it is to pray (desire to pray?) and fasting/feasting (how much I've had to eat).

I recall a Catholic bishop patting me on the head once. Does that count? *shrugs*

I got whipped with a pussy willow on Palm Sunday by an old Russian woman.

Should I change my name to Cyril?

All you guys crack me up.

Kirk, actually the change of tone was on purpose. "There's a time for every purpose under heaven" and yes meat makes you (or me...) sarcastic, I think that's in the Fathers someplace. If its not, it is now. LOL!

How do you prove succession at all, let alone the interwebz?

Tom said...

"and yes meat makes you (or me...) sarcastic,"

That explains a lot. The week I've had,I'm literally full of bile. The inside of my stomach must look like the Jerusalem Temple after a particularly busy day.

Back on the muesli from Monday.

http://www.catholic-hierarchy.org/ this helps if you are Catholic. Sadly only goes back as far as 1500's. (still a bit far for apostolic succession)

Another good graph. A frequent constant in the equation is the term "Ofeish". All other terms are irrational or imaginary.
