... I am packing up and moving to Rome and marrying this man... pronto!



Thank you, Gretchen, for finding my future spouse.

Moderately Goth women are to me as members of the Swiss Guard are to Kat, lol! The problem is, I can't find any Catholic Goth women, moderate or otherwise! :-)

Does his blousson really have both a zipper and buttons!? At least he'll be easy to undress...

Did you photoshop your nose and lips into the picture?

Just another mad Catholic said...

The Crescat said...

Marco... I like the way yout think!

Rick said...

Are you sure he's not gay? The clothes look a tad frilly - if you know what I mean.

Guess the nun this is definitely off then. Looks like suburbanbanshee really brought the point home eh

Christopher Lake, we're out there. In fact, I belonged to a livejournal community Catholic Goths (slogan: Our religion is gother than yours"). Not a lot of posts, though. You could also pray for the intercession of St. John of the Goths (feast day June 26).

missjeanevil,

When I was a 19 and 20-year-old (many years ago now.. sigh) pagan, I was quite Goth. My blond hair was dyed jet-black, fingernails painted black, black eye-liner... and this was *while* I was living in a small, not-so-open-minded Alabama town! What I was I thinking, lol?!

After that, I stripped off the make-up, spiked my hair, rediscovered my inner angry young man, and became an Elvis Costello disciple! From one kind of nerd-dom to another, hehe... I think that's *really* what I'm attracted to in women-- I want a Catholic nerd with a wild streak (like me?)! :-)

However, the older that I get, it seems that God may have ordained me to be single, though I don't like it, and I will almost certainly never be formally "ordained"... We shall see.

missjeanevil said...

Christopher Lake, yours is a familiar story. I will pray for you in your singledom and ask that you pray for me, too. Trying to meet a Catholic man with a COMPATIBLE oddness is like finding a needle in a haystack... at the bottom of the ocean. :)

Christopher Lake said...

Jean,

I thank you for your prayers, and I will be praying for you too. "A compatible oddness"-- nice phrase! I appreciate such things, as I have a B.A. in English-- which, in the job market, apparently means B.S.! :-)

Christopher Lake & missjanevil this might be your moment to know each other, remember God works in mysterious ways.

Christopher Lake said...

Father Gary,

Talk about coincidences-- you're in Rockville. For almost eight years, I lived in Silver Spring and hope to move back there one day! The MD/DC buses (and subway) are sooo much better for my wheelchair than those in New Mexico...! If only I could get back into disabled-accessible housing out there!

(I'm very skittish on the long-distance relationship thing with anyone these days. It is part of what brought me to New Mexico. Didn't work out, and now I'm stuck here...)

Rick said...

@FrGaryV. r u @ St. Mary's? If u r the PacificIslander t hen I might have met u. We talked about our dear bishop, if u recall. Check out my blog as I use examples from our archdiocese & might have included u in a post.

Fr. Gary V. said...

Hi Rick, yes I am at SMR and I am a Fil-Am priest assigned by the Archdiocese of Washington to a city/urban parish.

Kat, I tried to figure out a way to put him in my suitcase to bring him home for you. Sadly, the carry-on regulations have become way too restrictive...

And I can tell CC likes dimpled chins!
