Just a Papist Jackass


sanfelipe007 sent in a donation via PayPal for this flag of the Holy See which arrived last night. It was found online by E.D. Thanks to you both. It should last through WNC storms. I tried to rip open the package with all enthusiasm not paying attention to the hefty staples. One ripped into my hand setting me bleeding. The bandage is now off. Gotta wonder if that’s a sign. But no reading tea-leaves!

Meanwhile, also on my “day-off” the other day, a friend gave me these two donkeys, just to remind me that I’m supposed to be a guard-donkey for the flock as a priest:


It all does good to the heart of this priest. Thank you.

    Looks good. Glad you have your flag again and I think I am both sorry for your injury or glad for one who shed his blood for Christ and the Church. No one can say to you: “you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood.” Hopefully the folds will shake out of the flag. An iron on a LOW heat might do it?

    The situation that most makes me think of being a donkey is carrying stuff for the homeless. Literal donkey work. Homeless people often have a lot of heavy stuff to carry on foot and if you share the burden a tiny little bit they are really grateful.

      And and you remind me to take some clothing to parish apostolate for the homeless this morning. Thanks for that.
