Taliban Catholics


Who goes to Mass on Sunday?

Who does stuff when it needs doing?

Who went to Hyde Park and Cofton Park? (Not me, as it goes, but quite a few people I know who then went to work or school on the Monday.)

Who turned up at Cofton Park at 4.30am and sat in the rain for 5 1/2 hours?

Who stood outside Westminster Abbey for hours on the Friday?

Who are the people buying pushchirs for the Sisters in Glasgow, coffee from the Carmelites in the US, subscribing to the Redemptorists' publications, going on the Rosary Crusade, turning up at lots of other things...?

Who isn't making a fuss about the new translation of the Mass?

Who didn't make a fuss (in a bad way,) about Cardinal Newman's Beatification?

Who is doing a whole host of other things, beavering away...?
Lots of poeple.

Couldn't have put it better myself...

Agree - just one quibble. I don't think there was quite as much rain as you suggest at Cofton Park!
