I grew up watching Kirk kiss green women. I never understood the attraction! But I loved the new movie too! diane May 25, 2009 - 7:10 pm I thought Padre Pio had the charism of bilocation…? So he could be in sick bay and on the deck at the aame time…. Mack May 25, 2009 - 7:33 pm Good so far, but where is Patrick McGoohan as #6? shanasfo May 25, 2009 - 7:42 pm Now that would be an episode worth seeing! LarryD May 25, 2009 - 7:49 pm “Boldly go where no one has gone before…” Yeah, that pretty much describes the Curt Jester! Good one! Guillermo Bustamante May 25, 2009 - 11:29 pm Jeff: I can see that you share a jest-humor with me, and are a fan of St. Pío (documented miracle worker), & endorser of Our Blessed Mother apparitions in Garabandal and Medjugorje, not yet “officially” recognized (for the same wierd reasons happening before in Fátima, Lourdes, etc). Well, now in May CELEBRATING FÁTIMA, the student bloger Ms. Dawn Eden did an appeal calling for Marian information, and deleted my comment twice, arguing: “Guillermo, I deleted your comment for personal reasons. You were discussing an apparition that has not been approved by the Church, and presenting it to a Protestant as though it were what Catholics believe. One day, if I post about that apparition, you can discuss it there, but right now I’m banning that argument from discussion–it’s not relevant, and it’s not helpful to the topic at hand. Dawn Eden | Homepage | 05.25.09 – 9:55 |” My comment was: Dawn: We are living the dawning of a Marian age, and the most useful advice to promote her devotion, is written by the greatest Marian, Saint Louis Grignion de Montfort. Her apparitions draw tens of millions of converts, especially today in Medjugorje, where occurred many miracles (I’m witness), and the conversion from the widespread Cafetería Catholicism of… yours truly. Today’s Message of May 25, 2009 “Dear children! In this time, I call you all to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit upon every baptized creature, so that the Holy Spirit may renew you all and lead you on the way of witnessing your faith, you and all those who are far from God and His love. I am with you and intercede for you before the Most High. Thank you for having responded to my call.” Reach http://www.medjugorje.org/ RELEVANT… is a most proper word to take the little time of… looking in that web-site, and read this historic-unprecedented act of Benedict XVI: Spokesman For Cardinal Confirms That Medjugorje Has Been Taken From Commission Into Direct Hands Of The Vatican It came as a complete surprise and it is now confirmed. It is nearly as if the hand of John Paul II himself is in it. Or is it simply that Benedict XVI is a bit more mystical than many perceived? In Europe, the press has reported that the matter of Medjugorje — the famed apparition site in Bosnia-Hercegovina that was so dear to John Paul — has shifted directly into the hands of the Vatican. It is true, we are now told authoritatively. The apparitions will not be accepted or rejected by local or regional Church officials until they are directed how and when to do so by Rome, officials now report — in one of the larger development in this case since onset of the apparitions… Read on. “BY THEIR FRUITS YOU SHALL KNOW” Cordially Al May 26, 2009 - 2:59 am Priests in Space!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Knowing what I do about Padre Pio’s sense of humor, I think he would approve. Marguerite May 26, 2009 - 9:06 am This is in terribly bad taste and disrespectful of a man who bore the stigmata of Christ. Shame on you. Burnt Marshwiggle May 26, 2009 - 9:40 am Ah, I recognize this episode. This is the one where an alien creature in the 23rd century starts life on federation vessels/planets because it removes the 97% water in humanoids who have contracted original sin – turning them to powder. Kirk learns from Johannes Brahms that although the solution to this plague is baptism, requires the long-forgotten Trinitarian Formula (having been replaced by the Russian Quadro-TriniDaily). Since the only surviving religion is Native American spirituality and has no records of the Trinitarian formula, Kirk goes back in time to find someone who knows the Trinitarian Formula. When Padre Pio learns of the 23rd century plight caused by having no priests, he returns with Kirk so that he can administer the sacraments. Maureen May 26, 2009 - 11:07 am Explaining the joke…. 1. Padre Pio, like McCoy, was notoriously cranky and plainspoken. 2. Starfleet ships should have had chaplains. If they didn’t, clearly mission priests would have joined Starfleet, being paid for non-priest specialties and doing their priestly duties during their “free time”. If they did, they still might well have gotten socked under “medical and psychological” (blue), as they’re pretty clearly not command (gold) and might not count as engineering and ship services (red). 3. He’s Italian. “Dammit” doesn’t count as a cussword for him. 4. Big savings on transporters. Fr. Chris Decker May 26, 2009 - 1:14 pm The Marshwiggle’s got it! Spock May 26, 2009 - 3:29 pm Fascinating… Maureen May 26, 2009 - 6:02 pm Love the Marshwiggle’s take. Of course, it wouldn’t be a Catholic episode of Star Trek unless somebody asks Kirk if he’s ever considered the priesthood…. 🙂 Thomas May 27, 2009 - 6:38 pm Am I the only one who at first look thought that was Alec Guiness’ Obi-Wan Kenobi chopped into the picture? Oh, I am? I need help. Plano May 28, 2009 - 4:46 pm Marguerite said “This is in terribly bad taste and disrespectful of a man who bore the stigmata of Christ. Shame on you.” Simmer down and have a sense of humor…besides, the whole stigmata thing was a hoax. Comments are closed.
