Since we're in the Easter Octave, I have a clear conscience posting a comic strip that appeared in newspapers around the country on Easter Sunday.


To see a larger size (or for you Young Fogeys who would like a copy of this autographed by the comic's author), click here.

I laughed out loud when I read this on Easter morning. Our parish priest made a comment about the "C&E" Catholics during Midnight Mass this past Christmas. I almost fell off my pew. I never realized priests knew what that meant.......LOL :)

Thank you for your blog.

Yes, we priests know what that means and we know when your envelopes are not in! *LOL The cartoon captures the great thirst that young people have for the Transcendent. Young people want to really know God in their unique capacity and it is a moral failure on the part of parents not to bring their children to mass. Parents promised 3 times at the Baptismal Rite that they understand what they are doing by bringing the child to the waters of baptism... "To bring this child up according to the Law of Christ and His Church." We want to see God, we all thirst for the Transcendent in our own lives. Why is it such a chore to come to mass 1/168 hours of the week? Is this too much for God to ask?

Incidentally, I learned the term C&E from the pastor of the parish I grew up in.
