Two white doves released by children standing alongside Pope Francis as a peace gesture today were attacked by other birds.

As tens of thousands of people watched in St. Peter’s Square, a seagull and a large black crow swept down on the doves right after they were set free from an open window of the Apostolic Palace.

One dove lost some feathers as it broke free from the gull. But the crow pecked repeatedly at the other dove. It was not clear what happened to the doves as they flew off. …

Vatican hires world’s leading pro-homosexual corporations as advisors

Randy Engel
January 1, 2014
Introduction
In their efforts to bring “transparency” and “efficiency” and “financial reform” to the Government of the Vatican City State (the “Governatorato”), Vatican officials have managed to completely ignore the lack of moral credentials of the mega firms they have hired to carry out these tasks including the world’s top pro-lesbian, “gay,” bisexual, transgender (LGBT) consulting firm of Ernest & Young, now formally known as EY. [1] Nor, apparently, did Ernest & Young officers volunteer this information before signing their formal contract with the Vatican to seal their lucrative consultation deal. Nor, apparently, did the leaders of the Homosexual Collective Internationale feel constrained to publicly denounce this well-advertised, but incredulous business arrangement between the alleged “homophobic” Roman Catholic Church and the London-based corporate giant of Ernest & Young, the world’s most “gay friendly” employer.

Only problem with that is they where not the same specie of birds attacking the doves. Given how much the Church is being attached from outside and from within this likely represents the following:

Crow = the Devil and his forces outside the Church.

Seagull = those in the Church who look like a dove(i.e. Faithful) who have allied themselves with the Devil and/or world.

That also happened when Benedict after being elected appeared in the balcony and released a dove. What appeared then was a gull. Matter of fact I posted a comment about it.

A lightning bolt strikes the top of the Vatican’s St Peter’s Basilica, just hours after Pope Benedict XVI announced his surprise resignation on Monday.

If you read what I wrote, I clearly used the plural form of dove.

Yes, I was wondering if both doves represent the Roman Catholic Church in post 9. Never mind...

You have a point. If I had to guess I would say one is the Church itself i.e Christ, and the second dove represents his true followers i.e. the truly faithful. Think of it as a full two pronged attach by the forces of hell.

Thank you, that makes it more clear to me. Christianity is certainly under attack by the forces of hell and the Catholic Church seems to catch the brunt of it.

Its Total Spiritual warfare between Christ(His Church) and Hell. Hell has already lost, but its up to us to prevent souls from being dragged down to hell during the left over battles. The leadership and including us have done a very poor job teaching the faith, hence the reason for so many of the problems we see gathering at the boarder and ready to burst forth.

Thinking further, it may also represent that there is going to be a full revolt by a large chunk of the priests inside the Church and is a warning to the Holy Father to be prepared as it will also coincide with an attack from outside the Church as well, i.e governments and investigation or perhaps worse and on the level of physical violence against the faithful. What ever way it is, the day is way to long and something evil, diabolical, and quite cunning is about to transpire.

I think things are going to get rough. have you read this article?

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/jan/25/extremist-religion-wars-tony-blair

I would like to believe he’s talking about Islam but I know they won’t do that— concentrate on muslims. I think they will tamp down much more. You don’t support and cheer homosexuality? Well, you’re extremist then. It’s odd, I have stopped being frightened, even when I realize the possibility for very bad times ahead.

I saw it earlier, and your right it will be used to go after those who don’t toe the line as the world sees it. Perversion of every kind is running rampant in the hearts of men, so anything that will remind them of what is right and what is the the truth will become the object of their hate and ultimately action against it.
