Now, am I just imagining it or did something rather spooky take place during that quaint little pagan ritual preceding the Plenary’s Opening Mass?
You’ve probably already seen the video – an indigenous woman opened proceedings with an acknowledgement of the Cathedral site’s previous inhabitants, who were of course, itinerant and somehow forgot to mention those other former residents of the area – the Irish, English, Italian, Chinese, Polish, Tongan, New Zealand and so on who helped build our nation.
She went on to lecture the Catholics present about their need to learn from Aboriginal spirituality. Just as she mentioned that she was stolen from her family by the “Catholic Church” – note, not by members of that Church, who may well have been rescuing the unfortunate woman from a life of abuse – the altar cloth blew up quite noticeably, before falling back to its former vertical position.
The video of the livestream can be found here (spookiness at around the 12 minute mark). Of course, I may be being too imaginative. (One can get away with such things on an anonymous website, after all.) Perhaps it is the talk of “male and female spirits” that has me on edge. I can imagine all those Plenary participants being exposed to demons, and then returning to the chanceries around the country with some (extra) evil spirits in tow. Or maybe it is the thought of all that smoke, “wafting through the entrance” to the church, which has been offered to devils instead of the pleasing scent of incense which should have risen up to honour the Holy Trinity.
There is another question to be asked: precisely who would even want to watch a livestream of the Plenary’s Masses? The entire event is completely irrelevant to most Catholics, who have far more important things to do than watch their hard-earned offerings being squandered on an unholy talkfest.
In her little speech, the woman makes the unusual claim that her DNA “predates Australia.” Well, it’s likely that the DNA of many people contains genetic markers that are older than that.
But, consider this: one needs to retrace only twenty generations to find that we all have ancestors in common. And another fifteen generations takes us all back to a common family.
So Adam and Eve being our common parents, we are all of the same family. My ancestors just happened to have come via Europe. And they brought some pretty fine technology, culture and philosophy along with them. Perhaps that is the acknowledgment that needs to be promulgated from now on – although I have a feeling the Plenary won’t get behind that idea. It’s simply too Christian..
Instead, the PC (political correctness) Assembly seems committed to implementing its predetermined agenda, come hell or high water. And with all those demons invited onto the sanctuary, hell is what it’s most likely to get.
