"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Church lady ...


Rushing home from Mass to post online.

  1. I'm certain the Church Lady has a mobile device and could post on line immediately after Mass without going home.

    1. Of course she does. What was I thinking? LOL!

      I wonder if that happens much - live streaming from Mass to show abuses and such?

  2. As a kid growing up on a farm in tornado alley, this film was the stuff of nightmares. I watched it on tv as an adult, and they had edited out most of the truly scary parts--the nasty talking apple trees and a lot of the tornado footage, but I still found it macabre fare for children. "How about a little fire, Scarecrow?" Geez Louise...

    1. Haha! I know. I've often wondered about Glinda the Good Fairy appearing in a sphere of light - it was how Our Lady approached the children at Fatima.

    2. Wow. I was terrified of the flying monkeys.

      Fatima was probably the inspiration since it was 20 yrs before the movie was made.

  3. THIS is how a kids movie should be made...dark and scary..the book is darker as there are a whole lot of things in Oz ready to harm Dorothy. Cut out the trees..sacrilege!

    Margaret Hamilton owns both the bad ass witch role and self righteous petty mean old lady roles.

  4. Mack, were you raised on the unsanitized version of Brothers Grimm stories?

  5. I still remember the first time I saw this movie at the age of 8. I still LOVE it today! Bring on the flying monkeys and talking trees! We need to see the difference between good and evil!

  6. Margaret Hamilton, for all the evil characters she played, was said be a very kind lady who loved children.

  7. Does anyone remember when Mr Rogers had her on his show to demonstrate that she was actually a nice regular lady?

    1. I don't - and I used to watch Mr. Rogers on occasion as an adult. I think I may have seen her interviewed on Cavett or another such talk show. She was nice.

  8. She brought her witch hat to the show, and Mr Rogers asked to try it on.I was sitting on the couch with my home day care kids, and I almost blurted out, "Don't do it, Mr Rogers!"
