Bis pueri senes?
This is supposed to be a rehearsal of some sort. I dont know for which event.
I really want to just smile and shrug this off. I suspect this isnt what Pope Francis meant when he said that we clerics have to get out there.
This is too far out there.
DISCLAIMER: Some mouth-breathers out there will claim that I tried to compare WYD to some sort of Nazi rally. That is NOT what I am about to do. If there is a better image of non-conformity within a large, uniformed crowd doing something that is just plain wrong, please send it to me.
It is easy for us, in a crowd, in a mob wherein there is that unpredictable n+x factor involved to lose our heads and do what everyone else does in the pressure of the moment. But, Your Excellencies, after watching this, really?!?
The next time they ask you to do something like this, and they will, please be that guy? ALL of you?
Meanwhile . Sirach 3:12-14.
I will keep the combox CLOSED on this.
“Here, exactly, is Fr Z’s blog entry...”
No; you posted Fr Z’s sanitized version. Nice try.
