International Catholic Blogference

PrayTell notes the Vatican invitation to talk to bloggers on May 2nd. What–they think the whole Catholic world will just drop everything and come to Rome for a one-day meeting?

What did you say?

Oh, yeah.

There’s that.

When the institution finally enters the 20th century, do you wonder what century the laity will live in? A meeting for bloggers? Is the whole internet shutting down after Easter week?

There’s no longer any need for people to travel internationally to communicate about blogging. We are already international–at least for the countries that let us sneak into their people’s computers and phone and such.

Show of Vatican hands: how many think you still need a computer to blog?

I’ll tell you: if I get to go to Rome, I’m not going for a meeting. I can get plenty of those at my parish.

    Todd, you may have stumbled (or dashed your foot against a stone!) onto the real smoke of Satan let into our sacrosanct post-conciliar environs! And it has nothing to do with BUGNINI!

    Meetings. MEETINGS. BLOODY FREAKIN’ MEETINGS!

    I remember I used to parrot to non-RC peers in worship arts: “Well, we have death by autocrat, but y’all have it much worse-death by committees and their meetings!”
    Ain’t Karma a _ _ _ _ h! We’re now emulating the Prots with those twin inanities and insanities.

    You’re a genius. But you knew that. ;-)

    Todd: give ‘em a break – they mean well, sort of. But then:
