This is unbelievable.

On Good Friday I made my confession online, and this morning, Easter day, I received Holy Communion, delivered to me in a polystyrene container by a courier van. It came complete with a DVD of a conveniently shortened version of Easter mass.

So without moving my arse more than ten metres my soul was cleansed. I have to say I do find it heartening that the church has embraced the computer age in this way. Not only convenient for me, but also green for the planet. I call that a win win situation!

  1. WOW man! I'm very impressed!
    Jeez... how come I never got that DVD/Holy C. at home?? Do you have good connections up there?
    This makes me think that someone added my name to the online black list of those who will be burning in hell someday!

  2. Strangely, the hell to which you will be consigned will have no internet connection, and will be all too real.
    Save me a good spot near the fire, please.

  4. You've been conned. The "Father" you confessed to is a young single mother.

  7. Hallo. I hope the polystyrene container was sealed and "taste-neutral" - we don't want the saviour tasting like plastic!
    MJ sent me.

  9. I'm on the Vatican's Sh*tlist so no such luck.

    I also heard that the Taliban (hey mistah taliban, tally me bananas) was having two-for-one beheadings so as not to be outdone by the others. This damn recession is a bugger innit?

  11. Ok... I just have to add that my word verification was "cowticad." I thought you only had horses and sheep around... in your confession you never mentioned cows.
