Vain attempts at making Monday more tolerable …

… Catholics love kitsch. This is no secret. We are the proud creators of some of the best sentimental cheap plastic crap ever to be manufactured from China. Here are some blogs celebrating our profoundly poor taste.

Saint Kitsch – Celebrating all that is wonderfully awful in the world of Catholic Kitsch.

Bad Vestments – Dedicated to subjecting particularly awful Christian liturgical vestments or church decorations to the ridicule they so richly deserve.


Now behold! Gaze into the penetrating stare of Velvet Jesus.

    I think the disco Virgen de Guadalupe is my personal favorite.   I really must have one.  I know exactly who I would give it to.

    Is that finger nail less Peter Lorre? The Lamb looks like it is related genetically.

    The lamb looks like one of those big brain aliens from Star Trek.

    I’m praying my husband doesn’t see the Guadalupe-he’s already set on a color wheel for behind the bathtub Virgin Mary in the front yard.

      Madam, your husband is a damn genius.

    Not to worry ’bout the little lammie with hydrocephalus, our earnest Lord with the offset eyes (that Thomas Keane art guy was is piker compared to this painter of light) will correct the malformation once he adjusts his piercing gaze away from my longing heart.
