The TV is my Shepherd (a Parody)

The TV is my shepherd I shall not want,

It makes me to lie down on the sofa.

It leads me away from the faith,

It destroys my soul.

It leads me to the path of sex and violence for the advertiser’s sake.

Eventhough Iwalk in the shadow of Christian responsibilities.

There will be no interruption, for the TV is with me.

Its cable and remote control, they comfort me.

It prepares a commercial for me in the midst of my worldliness

and anoints my head with secular humanism and consumerism.

My Covetousness runs over;

surely ignorance and laziness shall follow me all the days of my life,’

and I shall dwell in the house of wretchedness watching TV forever.

(A parody on Psalm 23, in a homily broadcast on EWTN-18 March 2002)

What a dreadful way to live, living in a way that leads to death. But there is another way to live…and this truly leads to life eternal…

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

In verdant pastures he gives me repose;

Beside restful waters he leads me;

He refreshes my soul.

He guides me in right paths

For his name’s sake.

Eventhough I walk in the dark valley

I fear no evil; for you are at my side

with your rod and your staff

that give me courage. (Ps 23:1-4)
