Well, I had all the intentions of having our choir's rendition of Mozart's Ave Verum played on this episode. However, using a new recorder, as well as the choir did, the recording itself was trash. It was nothing but noise, doing the choir's excellent work absolutely no justice. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Today we continue with our White List, using the disposable hymnal Breaking Bread from OCP.

Shamus O'Reilly (police sketch at left) is hung over from last Friday's festivities. So, my sidekick in a pinch is another technological character, Fr. Jud McFry. I found his voice to be a cross between Chef (from South Park), Snagglepuss, and Don Pardo, and maybe even a touch of David Brinkley, all in one crazy package. Oh, and I think you'll just enjoy rocking out to our new intro. We also continue our White List, using Breaking Bread from OCP
