Why I'm reading Dennis Lehane...

...and have been for the past year or so... so many of his books are so good:

"The only thing good Catholics love more than God is a short service. Keep your organ music, your choir, your incense and processionals. Give us a priest with one eye on the Bible and the other on the clock, and we'll pack the place like it's a turkey raffle the week before Thanksgiving."

– "Prayers for Rain," November 1999.

So true. The 6:30 am mass at Immaculate Conception was always full of golfers, clad in tacky garb for the links.

Let the milk of human kindness flow in your bosum, Madam... at least they're not ditching their devotions for their tee times.

Of course, one wonders exactly what is uppermost in their prayers: world peace or a round without hooks, slices and roughs.
