A parish I once worked at, the Pastor would refer to the Christmas and Easter Mass Catholics as “Poinsettia and Lily Catholics”. :rolleyes:
The Franciscan priest that assisted on the weekends had some interesting names.
Pew Potatoes - They are the ones that stay seated in the pews from the moment they arrive until the moment they leave. They do not stand, kneel, or do anything else. Just sit, typically in the pews towards the rear of the church. Their purpose is to keep the pews intact, so they wouldn’t shift from all of the kneeling and standing.
Wall Huggers - These are those big burly casually-dressed guys that stand along the back wall in the rear of the church, with feet wide apart and arms crossed over their chest. They don’t move from the moment the arrive, until they leave. Their purpose is to keep the church from collapsing by holding up the rear walls.
That Franciscan was my confessor and spiritual director, with a degree in Psychology. He also had a wicked sense of humor. :eek:
