Patron saint of hypocrisy

How can I subscribe to
(your version of) religion
when you only ask God for what you want
and ignore the fundamental principle
“love your neighbor as yourself.”

You’re a vessel of hatred
while praying the rosary
(so my happiness disappears)
but the Holy Spirit won’t force me to
“honor my mother.”

When you implore me to go to Mass
and (in the same breath) deliver a diatribe
about things you don’t understand,
I hold my tongue and think,
“You need Jesus.”
