Give it up for Fr. Len Plazewski, who worked some topical humor into his homily two Sundays ago at Christ The King Catholic Church’s 9:00 a.m. Mass.
He acknowledged that, although not an avid horse-racing fan, he had been rooting religiously for everybody’s favorite gelding, Funny Cide, to win Belmont and thus the Triple Crown. Had Funny Cide won, deadpanned Fr. Plazewski, it might have been an omen that it “would be a banner year for celibacy.”
