Cardinal Mahony and a funny chat moment.

On March 2nd, Cardinal Mahony engaged in a chat session with 7th and 8th grade children from St. Rita's School. Here is an amusing excerpt:

Madeline P.: If you became pope what would you change your name to?

Sean A.: not me

Cardinal Mahony: I'm not going to become pope, so I don't worry about a name!!

That just struck me as funny. Here is another one:

Ross W.: If you could make any changes to the catholic church what changes would you make? and why?

Cardinal Mahony: Actually, I am more interested in focusing on Jesus Christ, his teachings and example, and our need to make the Church reflect those more fully. That's a high priority for me.

And then, don't miss this one on sacred music:

Cardinal Mahony: There is a lot of great sacred music out there these days!

Jillian J.: Have you ever heard the song Somebodys Knocking at your door?

Alex H.: yes, there is

Meg P: I like "Seeds Scattered and Sown"

Cardinal Mahony: Jillian, yes!

Cardinal Mahony: Meg, another good hymn!

Madeline P.: we sing that a lot at our masses

Carolyn H.: We will have to sing them for you sometime

Cardinal Mahony: How about "Who let the dogs out?"

Madeline P.: ya

Jillian J.: Yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Michael N: o yeah!!1

katy t.: i love it

Carolyn H.: Classic!

Michael N: !!

Sean A.: That's a good one

katy t.: a classic

Madeline P.: whoo hoo

(Now, correct me if I am wrong but wasn't "Somebody's Knockin at Your Door" a Wings tune from the 70's? Am I off or just showing my age? Maybe it was "Somebody's Knockin at THE Door"...)

Here is the link to the transcript for you to peruse:

I was wondering if you could help me out. I must be very stupid: I just gave my blog a whole new custom template so I put some feeds down the left hand side. I wanted Zenit & CWN too, put I couldn't figure out how to do it or where to find the feed. Would you tell me, in baby instructions, how you did it.

my blog is:

you'll find my email in my profile.

Here is the zenit ticker link:


You should be able to insert these codes in the template where it allows html. Hope this helps!
