Sometimes I wouldn't mind being Fr. Z.

Fr. Z's flight home.
I so wanted a cocktail after seeing this.

I'm not envious, but I must admit, sometimes I wouldn't mind being Fr. Z. 


He's a priest on his own, he can say Mass and live in great intimacy with Christ in the Eucharist.  He lives very well, he doesn't have a lot of responsibility, and he travels a lot, he eats quite well and drinks well - he wants for nothing a gift card can't obtain.  Not a bad gig.

 Father is on his way back to the United States tonight.


  1. "Not a bad gig"

    "It's not such a bad way of getting through one's life," Cordelia on Sebastian in Bridehead Revisted.

    Not many would envy Sebastian's way, but of more interest, which is the more Catholic?

  2. I occasionally wonder what the deal is with him, but manage to remind myself that it's none of my business.

    And I guess if folks want to subsidize his life style, it's also none of my business.

    At least he gets his theology right and doesn't lead anyone astray.

  3. Adrienne writes : "At least he gets his theology right and doesn't lead anyone astray."

    In other words, when a priest does better than being a heretic leading the sheep astray, he's praised and subsidized as if he was the wellspring of heroic virtue.
