PopeWatch: It’s a Miracle!


From the only reliable source of Catholic news on the net, Eye of the Tiber:


VATICAN—Just days after Pope Paul VI moved one step closer to canonization after a miracle required for Beatification was formally approved, an EOTT source inside the Vatican’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints today is saying that a second miracle was approved this morning.

A yet to be released report by the Vatican states that an unidentified priest, through the miraculous intercession of Pope Paul VI, gave an entire homily on the topic of Humanae Vitae during the Summer of 2012.

The unidentified priest reportedly gave the homily during National Natural Family Planning Awareness Week in 2012, which occurs annually around July 25th, the anniversary of the release of Humanae Vitae by Pope Paul VI.

One former parishioner who was present during the miraculous homily told EOTT today that she had “never heard something so obscene” in all her years. “That was the last time I ever stepped foot into a Catholic church. Many parishioners, myself included, left to become members of the Unitarian Church across the street that very day. We felt so much more accepted. Our new church even has Zumba Yoga!”

Some parishioners, although admittedly taken back by the shocking homily, have hesitantly remained in the Catholic Church. “We were so confused at first,” said Sarah Miller, a lifelong Catholic studying Women’s Studies. “He usually starts homilies with a Deepok Chopra quote or a story about a disabled puppy that overcame obstacles, so this was very new to us. It was the summer, so there weren’t as many people at Mass. It was extra quiet. He started to talk about…stuff…stuff I’d rather not mention.”

Although the parish where the homily was given has since lost more than 50% of their parishioners, for some, it has become a pilgrimage site, with hundreds flocking to the site every year to kiss the lectern where the homily was given.

Pope Francis, when asked to comment, said, “We live in an age of miracles!  Last night I had a vision of Saint Pope John XXIII.  He told me that when he was alive he used to tell a joke that when asked how many people worked at the Vatican he said, “About half.”  Now he was going to help me by telling me who I needed to cut at the Vatican.  Then my cell phone rang and the vision ended.  It was Pope Benedict.  I told him about the vision.  He said he had the vision too when he was Pope.  And, I asked?  “We couldn’t get rid of all the people on the list.  All that would have been left would have been me and one of my stray cats.”  My cell phone rang again and it was Saint Pope John Paul II.  He told me that he had the same vision of Saint Pope John XXIII at the beginning of his pontificate, but that Saint John told him that during his reign Communism would fall in Europe and Russia.  Saint Pope John XXIII then reappeared and said that he had been lazy when he talked to John Paul II, because it was a much easier miracle to bring about the fall of Communism than to reduce the Vatican bureaucracy!”

  1. I ALMOST had a miracle at a homily some years ago (true story!): The young priest earnestly said he was going to preach about hands–yes, hands. I thought:”Glory be, a miracle! He is going to talk about a priest’s holy hands [representing Christ’s venerable hands], hands that hold the Sacred Species, hands that absolve, hands that confirm, hands that anoint at the brink of eternity, hand that bless. Alas, he gave a lecture on exercise and hygiene. I left unfulfilled of a mystical experience. Priests with a zeal to preach the truth land up in the boondocks.
