Lolcatholics.

After my friend Sarah found a picture of St. Thomas More with the caption, "Im in ur chancery - messin with ur divorce," nothing could stop me!

(If you are unfamiliar with lolcats, i can haz cheezburger should make the concept self-evident.)



















St. Ignatius and Gerard Manley Hopkins




















St. Pius X* and St. Panteleimon**





















* All errors of spelling, grammar, and usage are intentional.

** St. Panteleimon ('All-Merciful') is known as Pantaleon ('All-Lion') in the West, and his hagiography is just that schizophrenic. The stories about his life are all legendary - including the part where he converts the soldiers who are about to kill him and then forces them carry out the execution so he can be a martyr. There is a phial of his blood in Italy which bubbles once a year, just like the one of St. Januarius in Naples; and Wikipedia claims that he appears to Italians in dreams and gives them winning lottery numbers. He has been hijacked lately by Phillip Pullman, to supply the name of Lyra's daemon in The Golden Compass. I wish we knew more about him. But the lack of reliable information has not stopped people from feeling great affection for him.

The chapel in the "we're not the KGB now" hospital is dedicated to St. Panteleimon.

I love your Pius so much I went and dug out a facebook application to let me display a large version of it on my profile - I've stuck in a link to your blog as acknowledgement. Marvellous marvellous.

You have seen Leo XIII advertising Bovril?

Wow. I have never before heard of Bovril, but I'm glad I do now. Can it really define things ex cathedra... or... ex poculo, so to speak? I thought that 19th century Englishmen would have responded poorly to papist hot chocolate, but I guess I was wrong.

I'm so glad you like my Pius! I've been waiting in vain for someone to use him on their blog or something - or even to freak out over his pidgin Latin (cat Latin is a step down from dog Latin, apparently).

It's on our sidebar!

Sorry no credit - I tried to make it a link, but couldn't get that to work. Will try again in the future...

Shouldn't it be "pwtamus"?

(Bovril is a beef concentrate, not hot chocolate. Goodness' sake :roll:)

Isn't it maddenning how people never appreciate one's wittiest or most profound efforts, and instead have combox discussions about the best way to peel an egg (or things of the kind)
