My Favourite Catholic Pick-up Lines

By popular demand I’ve gone and looked them up again. Some are my own creation, some are my fathers (mainly aimed at me!), some are originally from a Canon now living in Camberwell and some are from Patrick Madrid.

My favourite five...

1. Haven’t I seen your face on a Holy Card somewhere?
2. Confess here often?
3. My Guardian Angel thinks you’re cute
4. What's a nice girl like you doing at a First Saturday Rosary Cenacle like this?
5. What lovely scapular brown eyes you have! (Can, of course, insert green if need be.)

And the rest...

  • Your Pilgrimage or mine?
  • May I sit down? I was admiring your Chest - erton. Have you also read Orthodoxy?
  • I have a vocation to the married life. Will you help me out?
  • My Sacred Heart statue started beating faster when I saw you.
  • Ah, so you’re what happened to my missing rib.
  • May I offer you a light for that votive candle?
  • I would like to study the Theology of your body.
  • Hi there. My buddy and I were wondering if you would settle a dispute we're having. Do you think the word should be pronounced HOMEschooling, or homeSCHOOLing?
  • You don't like the culture of death either? Wow! We have so much in common!
  • Let's get out of here. I know a much cozier little Catholic bookstore downtown.
  • I bet I can guess your confirmation name.
  • Hi, I need someone to do a Novena with. (That’s nine dates guaranteed)
  • Sorry, but I couldn't help but noticing how cute you look in that ankle-length, shapeless, plaid jumper. (ouch!)
  • Did you feel what I felt when we reached into the holy water font at the same time?
  • Can I carry your missal for you?
  • Come to my parish on Sunday you can see me in a tunicle.

    If you thought those were lame try these one's... for the evangelical in you!

Have I missed any? Anyone have any more? Or, more importantly, has anyone used them?

Hmmmm. What could be better than telling someone that you think that they are really holy?

Girl you better go to confession, because it's got to be a sin to look that good.

You make even ordinary time seem extraordinary.
