This is the church I go to. If she also attends, then she almost definitely has reflected upon why someone vandalized it, because we have talked about it and prayed about it at Mass. The Archbishop wrote a long letter to be read at our services this week that is about the history of Residential Schools and the Church's and the congregation's role in reconciliation. I don't know if she is apologizing to the statue in that photo, which I agree would be odd, but maybe she's just looking at the paint on an icon that is well-liked - it has polished spots where people touch it every time they pass. Maybe she is praying directly before it, as Catholics believe that we have personal relationship with Christ. Maybe, as most of have been doing recently, she is praying about Reconciliation, about the suffering of others. Maybe not, but I guess either way the glee at Catholics being upset about vandalism at their churches doesn't seem appropriate.Here's a Canadian Catholic, apologizing to a statue. You know, instead of reflecting on why someone would cover it in red paint and (fucking hilariously) steel wool.
It's far easier to fool a person than convince them they've been fooled.Honestly wondering when people are going to wise up to his grift. Trump Jr put out that they are opening donations for the legal costs to sue, which much like Trumps fund for the legal costs to challenge the election, is going to go mainly one place, his own pocket. He knows he isn't going to win, it's just another way to get free money because he knows how well it worked last time.
I'm SO GLAD I'm vaccinated and the masking bylaw here has been rescinded... And I think wearing a mask SUCKED and I didn't like it. Isn't there a space where we can say "I hate wearing this, but I accept wearing it?"Today I went to a different grocery store then my usual one, since it was more convenient on my drive. Put on my mask, got a few small things, and started to leave.
Some dope "Hey dipshit, you don't have to wear a mask anymore."
Me pulling from my deeper voice "I know, but thank god I live in the greatest country in the world."
Some dope "Huh?"
Me "Sir, here we cherish our power of making our own choices. It is my constitutional right to wear whatever want, and I chose to wear a mask."
Some dope "huh.... yeah... but...."
Me "Don't like it? Are you saying you don't like FREEDOM?"
Some dope "That isn't what..."
Me "I have no time for communists, good day, and GOD BLESS AMERICA."
As I walked to my car he just kind of stared at me for awhile probably unsure whether I was seriously patriotic or mocking him relentlessly. I was okay with that.
