"A spiritually dyslexic priest venerating DOG"

"Bad boy, your behavior is odd and very atypikon of dogs your size"

"Wow! tough way to lose our newest deacon"

J.D. said...

Okay Philo, er Fido, you're body language is telling me that the Auxillary Bishop tasted like chicken"

Anam Cara said...

"I know it's hard on your knees, but you cannot stay down like that between prostrations during the Canon of St. Andrew!"


I want to know what breed that dog is.

John S. Bell said...

And that's it for the next forty days! Tomorrow, soy meal!

jmgregory said...

"Come on. Please? Just one bite? We don't have to tell Abba. Really, he'll never know!"

John Congdon said...

"I swear, St. John Chrysostom really DID say pets should fast during Lent!"

(That's true, by the way.)

discourse said...

Looks like someone brought evidence to confession.

Ranger said...

What part of "extreme askesis" don't you understand? Now tell me which one of the novices gave you that bone.

Ranger said...

AC - I believe that is an Alaskan Malamute.

Matt said...

"You were supposed to uproot that tree! I knew we should have gotten a clydesdale...and a bigger chain"

Matt said...

"That was my favorite cat.."

Fr. Benedict Crawford said...

Fido, if I've told you once, I've told you a thousand times: STAY OUT OF THE OSSUARY!

Matt said...

"I know we're nowhere near the beach but I thought they'd help my feet breath a little."

Oh, Sobaka, I also miss Fr. Tolstiy. Let us sing his Tropar together. "O priest of blessed memory/Your holy purity was a light to the world/and you did not deign to dine with even the beasts/though in truth/rabbits are not a vegetable."

The Lord enjoys your blog, no matter who won the award.

- I'm only smelling.

You guys are making it tough....
I just finished drawing the "prize". It will be a classic, trust me.

Chocolatesa said...

Lol! I vote for Fr. Benedict's!!!

The Ossuary should win on the basis of offense alone. Offending people who need to be offended is 150% win.

Alexander The Mediocre said...

I also vote the Ossuary!

Gary said...

Are those the relics of Saint Bernard?

ofgrace said...

All you guys are GOOD! I don't envy your task, Steve.

How about:
"What are you complaining about? I haven't even had tuna for 40 days!"

JeffHolton said...

I know you already picked. But I'm adding anyway.

"Evlogeite, Despota!"

s-p said...

Jeffrey, I haven't decided yet, but the competition is tough. I'll decide Friday morning. We may have to have a "caption off".... :)

Andrew Seraphim said...

"No, Rex, Uniates are not fast-friendly."

I'm from northern Saskatchewan so I can say that. Really, I can!

Alternate for Greek monastery?

"Good boy."

God help me.

Allie said...

"Forgive me Abbot, but perhaps you should think about shaving."

Matushka Anna said...

Boy, these were good! I'm wiping away tears!

My humble offering:

"I'm sorry, that 'Vatopedi fish' thing isn't going to fly this time."

Laura Short said...

Chewbaka...I told you...you must keep it to just one bone a day!

Chewbaka!!! Did I not ask you to save a little bite for me?

Hieromonk: You wish to confess again today, Chewbaka?

Anonymous said...

Great captions; but I'm another vote for "ossuary"!

Handmaid Joanna said...

"Brother Dog...do we need to revisit the topic of logismos?"

Anonymous said...

Jame's troparion made me laugh the most, especially the ridiculous last line! :-)

DogoCanario said...

Thank you but no meat for me during Lent.

[I think that it is a Spanish Mastiff.)

Matt said...

(Dog) "So apparently it's cold enough to wear a jacket but too warm to use the sleeves, eh padre?"


(Dog) "You gotta be kidding me with this."
(Monk) "Cells are small, get used to it"

"A guy throw his back out and you just lay there...man's best friend, psshhhh."

Bill M said...

I don't know what the caption should be, but I think that poor dog looks so dejected. :(

(Hmm... word verification today was "holocycl", which sounds like it would be a lot of fun right up until the time someone turned off the projection unit...)

Alexander The Mediocre said...

"Fr Arfy, have you seen my glasses? I can't answer my emails without them...Fr Arfy?...why won't you answer me..?...what are you doing down there..?..what are you doing with the relics...?..Fr Arfy?"


(still voting for the ossuary though...)

The pup could easily be a Šarplaninac/ Sar Planina, also known as a Serbian sheep dog. Google it and compare the pictures.

-Bratislav

p.s. Such dogs WILL eat Uniates if provoked.
