Even if this is a rain-forest in the registry of world rain-forests, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a bit of sun now and again. It is up in the mountains, but that doesn’t mean one can’t pretend to be at the beach. Thus, above, chickens at the beach! I can’t quite make out what they’re gossiping about. It’s all very hush hush. Kind of like Ireland when it hits 65 or even 70 degrees Fahrenheit on the one day of the year that there’s a bit of sun. The whole country goes to the beach and talks about whatever it is the Irish talk about when they don’t even know that there whole country has gone to hell. Yikes!
Let’s turn to the trilliums by the trilliums. Saint Patrick could have used these to explain the Most Holy Trinity to the Irish pagans, instead of the clump of shamrock that he used:
After all, trilliums have, as their name suggests, three lily like petals:
Saint Patrick got rid of the dragon like serpents inhabiting the emerald isle. One wonders if that referred to the exorcisms he surely wrought, or to actual count-the-scales snake like dragons. Sometimes people see Satan everywhere, even in dragon-serpent shaped ferns:
But one need not have much of an imagination to recognize that which is diabolic in Ireland.
The decision has been made to throw priests in jail for five years, priests who do not report to the police any sexual abuse of minors that a penitent accuses himself of in the confessional. Meanwhile, the penitent does a plea-bargain and is out in a year. Uh-huh. This isn’t about protecting children. It’s about attacking the Sacrament of Confession. It’s about using the suffering of abuse victims for an anti-Catholic agenda, which is just raping the real victims again.
Why would the ever so Catholic Irish do that, you ask? Because, by and large, the Irish have given up on the faith. Few go to Church and almost no one goes to Confession. There are few preists who have any respect for this sacrament. They don’t promote it. They don’t go themselves.
Also, almost all bishops have long ago given up calling sexual abuse a sin, speaking rather of psychological currents that manifested themselves and need treatment. However ill people can be, sin is still sin. But now, that which is most sinful is no longer sinful, just different in a way people don’t like, for now. Mark my words. Abusers of minors will be a separate class of people, like homosexuals, who will claim rights for themselves, etc., etc., etc.
TEOTWAWKI. So, it’s time for Irish priests to wake up and die right. Hear confessions, and be martyrs.
A note to pedophiles, clerical or lay: Make your way to HSH and I will hear your confession. With the grace of God, I will keep the seal of confession right to the death. By the way, did I mention that Saint John Nepomuk is a special patron of Holy Souls Hermitage?
