they walked along
weathered, carrying their guns;
like the four horsemen…

down to the O.K.
guns blazing, bullets flying;
smoke clears, the strong stand…

How were the merits of Jesus Christ applied to our souls

The merits of Jesus Christ are applied to our souls through the Sacraments
Especially Baptism
Penance
Which restore us to the friendship of God

A Cowboy is contest: Deanz

There once was a cowboy called Deanz,
Who lived on a diet of beans,
It was windy that night -
I can feel for his plight -
Yes, he needed to change his jeans...

sole garlic bred toads…

Of a shepherd dog's near human brain-
