I could be missing some context (I can't see wos' tweets).

It was said tongue in cheek. Just thought it a funny thing to bring up in the Catholic thread.

They've been suppressed twice. They've been making them this way for a loooooooooooong time.

Hey, its Father Martin, LGBTQSJ! Good times. He said the bible was wrong about homosexuality, Mary Magdalene was the first apostle, and countless other insane bits of heretical mumbo jumbo. But yeah, it's the rest of us that are crazy.

I'd ask you to fetch the green wood, Wos, but I'm afraid you'd just carve an idol out of it. :D

wosbald is like Uncle Bob.... he posts odd bits of news without comment, and we can't tell if he wants us to take them seriously or if he wants us to help mock them.

There was a manifestation last week at a neighboring parish with an active healing prayer ministry. A lady was referred by our parish because she was ailing and wanted to be prayed over and the neighboring parish really has their act together---trained councilors and a huge hall. A gal I know was praying over the lady in her mid-30s when all hell broke loose. She started screaming in a basso man's voice---something about a crucifix--- and spitting up stuff. At the other end of the hall, one of the other prayer councilors was showing one of the people a relic she'd recently been left by an old priest who was passing away. A supposed relic of the one true cross.
After they made the connection between the relic and the demon, the relic was removed from the building and the demon quieted down. Then they went about trying to track down the diocesan exorcist to arrange an appointment 8O
I'm not sure what's more astounding---a actual relic of the one true cross being in Fresno(if it were not an actual relic it wouldn't have caught the attention of the manifestation on the other end of the hall) or that there actually was a manifestation! :signofcross:

Wow. That's a lack of critical reading skill right there that's surprising in you. Then again, the Diocese of Madison has been blessed with great preachers and lecturers.

Last Sunday, there were an extraordinary number of little children and parents playing in the narthex during Mass.

I had some coffee-&-donut business to manage, and I ended up helping to mind a three-year-old girl while mom was breast-feeding an infant. I distracted the youngster with a scissors and a paper towel. I folded it and made some cuts to create a snowflake pattern.

The little girl unfolded the paper and examined it curiously.

Then she put it on her head and wore it like a mantilla.
