Mahony's spiritual rhinestones *

Diogenes offers an incisive comparison between the richness and beauty of the teaching contained in today's Angelus address by Pope Benedict XVI and the blandness and superficiality of Cardinal Mahony's WYD catechesis.

* rhineĀ·stone - A colorless artificial gem of paste or glass, often with facets that sparkle in imitation of a diamond.

I've been pushin decent so long
Singin' the same old song
I know every page in these dusty Modernist textbook
Where hustle's the name of the game
And nice guys get washed away like the snow and the rain
There's been a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Well, I really don't mind the rain
And a smile can hide all the pain
But you're down when you're caught in a trial that's takin' the long way
And I dream of the things I'll do
With a bunch of lawyers and a plane ticket inside my shoe
There'll be a load of compromisin'
On the road to my horizon
But I'm gonna be where the lights are shinin' on me

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know
And offers comin' over the phone

Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Riding out on a horse in a star-spangled rodeo
Like a Rhinestone cowboy
Getting cards and letters from people I don't even know (fade)
