I love it when a plan comes together!
Just a little '80s, A-Team, flashback for you there, folks! Normally, Fr. Tharp is the one who reveals his evil scheming to bring about great evangelization -- scheming which causes him to shriek with joy, while rolling around on the floor, kicking his hooves. Well, now it's my turn! If your home seismograph is registering any awkward activity, it is because I have thrown myself on the floor, am rolling around, screaming, and pounding my fists on the ground! Why, you may ask? Because the final stages are rapidly coming into place for another new activity in my parish: a Bible Study of all things!

Yes, that's right, folks, Catholics studying the Bible -- Catholics studying a Catholic book! I have been working with a parishioner who is a university professor, and a former protestant who studied his own way into the Church. He wants to lead a Bible study. We have settled on St. John's Gospel by Stephen Ray, published by Ignatius Press. It looks to be a great program. And the part that really has me convulsing in glee is that this all came together in the Year of the Holy Eucharist. Parishioners will be studying St. John's Gospel, which contains of all things the Bread of Life Discourse! Bwahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Growth in faith!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!! It's all mine, mine, MINE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, sorry. I really got carried away there. Now the only trick left to pull off is to get people to come in herds for this offering!
