Those of us who are of the Catholic persuasion know a good game of "two steps forward, one step back" when we see one...and we also know a good game of "3,000 steps backwards and not a single bit of forward momentum to be seen anywhere this side of Calvary" when we see one. The question for today's church is, which game are we playing? Delve in this this, and other of life's great mysteries with Dizzy & Ges as we tackle a round of Good Pope Bad Pope on Episode 92 - A Tale of Two Clergies!
Awards season is officially here. And Lent...well, it feels like Lent really never left us over the course of this last year or so. And since nothing says "Church Drunk" like taking two good things and ruining them both, we've decided to combine the pomp and circumstance of red carpets and gold envelopes with the sackcloth austerity of prayer, fasting, and almsgiving. Grab a glass of something bubbly and join Dizzy & Ges to determine which of our favorite things are the most Lentiest. Ladies and gentlemen...The Lentys!
So, usually it takes a few weeks to really get into the slog of Lent. By about Week 5, you can almost guarantee that Dizzy will be moaning about how long Lent is, and Ges will be (either intentionally or unintentionally) breaking all the rules. It's kind of an annual tradition. But with Lent 2021, tradition has been thrown to the wolves. We're not even two weeks in, and it feels like all bets are off. Did Lent even start? Does anyone care if we eat fish on Fridays? Is this the desert, or did we just install a sandbox in our own backyard just to keep our toddler from tearing apart the house? For answers to these and other of life's big questions, pull up a chair (and a cock-up!) and join us for Episode 90 - Land of P-Lenty!
