Himself, the Clairvoyant

It has recently come to my attention that Himself accurately predicted the future.
As a larger than usual group of us attended She Who Must be Ob... er, attended my Mom, sweeping into Mass on May 13, he apparently whispered to my sister, "We'll probably sing Mother Machree" (sp?)
Okay, now WHO could have guessed that?
(And no, I am not making this up.)
After the homily, pretty much in place of the Creed, since we skipped that and had a precis of what could have been the Prayer of the Faithful.

Ooooh, wretched thought - suppose he does not PREDICT distasters and horrors so much as call them into being by mentioning them?
Now that's a super power.
(Mine is finding parking spots. Yeah, you scoff now, pretty lame super power, but wait till it's raining....)

One sister just got up and walked out, found a Mass elsewhere.

I'm with your sister on this one. Whilst playing at a festival last weekend, I got up at a very early hour to take care of Ascension "Sunday," partly because of my scheduled sets and also hoping there would be no music. They had a cantor with a wobble and we sang almost every song I can't stand along with Janko's Mass of Wisdom. I left before Schutte's City of God could close out the Mass.
