It was the feast of the Martyrdom of John the Baptist on the 29th August, and in keeping with my habit of living the liturgical year in a 'running to catch up' kind of way, I thought I'd post this here today in his honour.
Coming from a proud tribe of Fenians, a Dub accent comes very naturally to me, and I have to say, it has triggered a new habit of chastising my children in the manner of the little narrator in this video, that is
" Do penance and give up yer aul sins!"
My other favourite line has to be the instruction from JB to his friend to ask Jesus if he is " Really God, or is he a shocking holy saint".
