Another John Paul Movie

As you know, I wasn’t happy about the Pope John Paul movie on the Hallmark Channel, so I’m not really thrilled about the upcoming CBS miniseries either.

I’ve agreed to attend the preview because my agent thinks it will be a good for publicity. I need as much love as I can get right now--especially with all the lawsuits going on.

This show better be good. A four-hour mini series could easily put me to sleep. I sure hope it’s not like the televised version of Brideshead Revisited. That series almost caused me to leave the priesthood entirely and start drinking heavily.

If Pope John Paul can only get a miniseries and a cheap movie on the Hallmark Channel, I’m destined for a brief segment on 60 Minutes (narrated by some unknown journalist who is filling in that day).

Of course not, Dear Pope!!! I'm sure that someone could buy your stories and put'em on TV.

Let me talk to your agent.

Your Holiness,

Don't worry! You have time to make your mark and get a feature length movie.

There's lots you can do: Expose some high-level priests' sex exploits, donate some of the church's riches to the poor, allow priests to marry. You'd go down in history. Think about it.

Work for the greater good. No Pope has gone to that extreme before.

You don`t need an agent, you need a guardian angel.

Forget what tanlucypez said about going down. She didn't really mean it. At least, not in the sexual way that you're thinking about.

I think you can get on Oprah... especially if you can bring in a few humbled, punished and repentent priests - you know, the fellows who couldn't keep away from the young folks. Them.
