Still ravaged by The Flu, potato blight, and Lenten-induced shellfish allergies, Dizzy & Ges carry on through this most blessed season of prayer and penance. And how could they not, when the Sunday gospel reading dials up a heavy dose of messianic rageousness? It's practically international Church Drunk day when churchgoers around the world celebrate this most unique of all charisms. So flip over a table, grab a cocktail, and settle in for another episode of Church Drunk!
Catholic schools are not really all about rosary beads and nuns whacking your knuckles with wooden rulers. They're also about Communion wine! And, uh...Catholic guilt! Join Dizzy and Ges (two veterans of the Catholic school system) for a celebration of Catholic Schools Week and the education you receive at the school of holy knocks.
The coming and going of the annual March for Life movement always gets us a bit riled up here at Church Drunk. On the one hand...yay life! On the other hand, uh, yay choice! Why are we told that we have to be one or the other, and what does it really mean to be "pro life" anyway? So, what do you march for? March for Life! March for Women! March to your local watering hole and fire up a new episode of Church Drunk!
We all know the story - a little baby born in a manger goes completely off the radar for 30 years, then bursts onto the scene for 3 years of intense world saving. Seems a bit strange that we know so little about those missing years of messianic preparation, though. Right? Join Dizzy & Ges in this episode for a quick recap of what we know, what we don't, and what we wish we knew about the man we call Jesus (even though that wasn't really his name).
We've had an epiphany...and so have you! It's time to celebrate the Wee Three Kings (pretty sure we nailed it on the spelling there) with the Fast of the Magi. Pour a glass of leftover nog and finish the holiday season as Dizzy and Ges explain what gifts they would have brought to the little baby Jesus in the manger.
As the Peanuts gang once sang, "Christmastime is here!" In fact, it has kind of already come and gone. Kind of. If you're suffering an emotional (or physical) Christmas hangover, Church Drunk has you covered. In fact, December 25th really just marks the beginning of the 12 days that make up the Christmas season. So grab a cup of cheer and join Dizzy & Ges for another episode, because the feasting has just begun!
Well, December is nearly over, and with it goes Advent. It would seem appropriate to wrap-up our 4(ish) weeks of preparation with a nice little retrospective, or a look toward Christmas. But since when have Dizzy & Ges been appropriate? Instead, Church Drunk invites you to join us for a very special December edition of Drunk Lives of the Saints!
We're rested and ready for another wobbly wander through the wormhole of faith, reason, and libations! Dizzy and Ges kick off Church Drunk Season 3 by taking a gander at the significance of the season of Advent (one of their favorites!). Grab your tinsel and your nog, and buckle up!
You knew we couldn't resist a little Halloween bonus action, right? And on top of that, Halloween leads us straight to the Feasts of All Saints, All Souls, and Dia de los Muertos. It's, like, a Church Drunk ghost and ghoulie extravaganza! So if you love tricks, treats, skeletons, skulls, and deep dives into demonology...this episode is for you!
