THE CAJUN CHRIST

...as depicted by Paul at Alive and Young

He Proposed another parable to them, “The kingdom of heaven may be likened to a man who owns a crawfish farm.” While everyone was asleep, his enemy came and tossed in the catfish into his pond and went off. When his pond filled with catfish and crawfish a worker of the farm owner came to him and said, “Boss, didn’t you throw crawfish in dis here pond? Then why dere be catfish in here?”

Imagine a Cajun Glory and Praise hymnal:

Here Ah is, Lard / It be me, Lard / Ah has heards yer shaht ahts in de naht...

or a Cajun Gather hymnal:

All ze welcome, all ze welcome, all ze welcome at mah grill.

Peace,
BMP

You laugh and poke fun, but I've actually attend Mass where a priest has changed the words of the Canon to be more Cajun, in his homily, he gave the words of Jesus Cajun slang and diction, and then the kicker was when the priest told the EMOC not to genuflect towards the Tabernacle after reposing the Body of Christ, but rather to genuflect towards the congregation because that's where Christ lives.

I would not be surprised if there is Cajun music at some Masses. Though, Cajun music might be better than Amazing Grace!! LOL
