Humor Gladly the cross-eyed bear by Jeffrey Miller December 23, 2005 written by Jeffrey Miller December 23, 2005 Catholic Church Conservation does find the wackiest liturgical photos.

Reply Jean December 23, 2005 - 9:42 pm I know someone who collects Teddy Bears and I would like to get him one of those Pope Benedict bears. Where can I get one? Reply Kristina December 23, 2005 - 11:32 pm Those Pope Benedict Teddy Bears were on sale at a popular German department store when I was there in August for World Youth Day. Reply Veronica December 24, 2005 - 2:56 am I love that Pope Benedict teddy bear… it even has the black sleeves Benedict had when he was elected! Nice detail… Reply Lulu December 24, 2005 - 11:39 am Now, be honest… how many times have you read “Witch Week” in the past three days? Reply John December 24, 2005 - 2:52 pm Is this something to be laughed at or should we not be sad that the mass is becoming one big circus Reply Teresa December 24, 2005 - 6:38 pm Personally, I could BEARly stand the thought of clown Masses when I happened upon this GRIZZLY sight. Yet another example of the POLARization that is occurring in the Church between traditional and a liberalized Mass. What is one to think of the suggestion of Trans-CUB-stantiation? Reply Venerable Aussie December 26, 2005 - 6:27 am Hey, that’s funny Teresa. Why do these priests feel that they have to pander to the crazy wishes of the masses. But maybe we are missing something. Perhaps, in the spirit of Narnia, Goldilocks is really some sort of Trinitarian parable. And (sings..) “If you go down to the woods today” for the teddy bear’s picnic then perhaps this has hints of the Eucharistic Banquet. Then again, perhaps the bears are just to remind us of the modern-day churches: bare. PS Happy Christmas! Reply Teresa December 26, 2005 - 10:14 am Merry Christmas to you too, Venerable Aussie! I look forward to your wonderful wit this coming new year as well. Reply Lynn December 27, 2005 - 10:00 pm Great comment, Venerable Aussie! “Then again, perhaps the bears are just to remind us of the modern-day churches: bare” Reply Leave a Comment Cancel Reply Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
