Fiddler on the Apse

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles ) | Mar 20, 2008

If only for the sake of your blood-pressure reading, particularly if your local liturgist is likely to tamper with the rubrics, you really must check Father Z's blog today.

From the Musical: Fiddler on the Apse
(a parody of "Matchmaker, Matchmaker," from Fiddler on the Roof)

Yenta: Modernist Liturgist,
Please wash my feet,
I’m not wearing sox,
And I’ll be discrete,
Inculturate the American Way,
And please wash my feet Thursday….

There's much more. Don't miss it.
