Conversation chez Cacciaguida: fun with the Paulist Press sale catalogue

CACCIAGUIDA (reading from the dang thing): "The Paulist Liturgy Planning Guide." Omg. "A compact, easy-to-use, and comprehensive resource" -- arrgh -- "for all ministries" -- ackk -- "involved in Sunday planning." Shoot me now. "Contains information and tips for musicians, lectors, Eucharistic ministers, liturgical planning committees" -- hey, I'll join! I wanna be empowered and vibrant! -- "homilists, and celebrants -- all in one volume."

ELINOR: It's all the result of the death of amateur theatricals.
