Holy hothouses

A STRANGE new blight has sprouted among the Church's most gifted lay theologians. A never-before-diagnosed disease, identified so far only as Vegetable Madness, has penetrated the soil of Church circles. The disease was first spotted in an article by distinguished boffin Edward Echlin, who wrote recently in this organ on the ever-so-slightly esoteric topic of the spirituality of potatoes. Now an article by Margaret Silf has appeared in the Westminster Cathedral magazine Oremus about "spiritual pumpkins" (see pumpkins— spiritual, I hope— below).

I wonder if this exciting new trend will take mot in the Vatican? I avidly await John Paul II's new encyclical on the spirituality of parsnips. By their fruits (or, indeed, vegetables) ye shall know them.
