Hey, Catholic Church!

GorT and family were sitting in Mass today at our local parish between some early teenagers )who obviously missed getting up for Mass earlier and were sent by their parents to this Mass and while unsupervised, two of them proceeded to loudly whisper through the homily) and a crying baby (who after still not settled by the homily should have been in the back of the church).  During the Eucharistic Rite, the music director had chosen the Agnus Dei (a favorite of GorT) versus the English “Lamb of God.”  My daughter was trying to find it in the missalette to follow along – however, it’s only available in the hymnal, and even then it’s buried.  

In this season of Lent, I find the Latin responses moving and solemn and well placed.  Hopefully, we’ll get a few more in Masses before Easter.

About GorT

GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
