This is from the blog "Eye of the Tiber" and is an attempt at fall humor.I have a sense of humor, but with nostalgia for the Church of What's happening Now" of the 1970's returning with a vengeance, when hosts were made of spice and honey and other ingredients, is this really funny or is it sacrilegious? I report; you bloviate.
When I was in the seminary of the 1970's the bread we used for the "Eucharist" had honey in it and other stuff. Many complained that the traditional hosts were more difficult to beleive that they were bread let alone Jesus. I had a hard time believing the new and improved ones were bread or Jesus.
Some seminarians called it "chewy" Jesus. Thus you see the seeds of irreverence planted firmly in seminarians of the 1960's and 70's and what has led to the decline of the Catholic Church worldwide.

Hipster Priest Consecrates Fresh Batch Of Seasonal Pumpkin Spice Eucharist
Just in time for the start of Fall, local hipster priest Fr. Kale Adams announced this morning that he has consecrated his first batch of Pumpkin Spice Eucharist.
Although the seasonal pumpkin flavor of Jesus’ body has been condemned by the Vatican, Fr. Adams has told his parishioners that they’re not sheep, but rather, “free souls that can’t be contained by the man or the Vatican.”
“Pumpkin Spice Eucharist allows me to express myself and my love for JC in ways you wouldn’t believe,” Adams told EOTT as he sat down to finish knitting a cover for his iPad. “And listen, to all those establishment bishops in Rome, I was consecrating before it was cool. And that’s why my parishioners dig me and why so many of them have returned to the Church in the first place. You gotta give them what they want. And what they want is Jesus…Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, with a flawless blend of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger.”
At press time, Fr. Kale Adams is trying on his brand new hemp vestments.
