Nice effort, but....


A few dozen people going door to door in a neat federal housing neighborhood, amassing at a door in matching Ts, a special mass with some Jesus laden commands... but what is the point of it all? To say a Hail Mary in a door way? and the effort? And the money? is this really the evangelization that Pope John Paul II asked for? The wonderful letter of praise for Megamission in the 90s that Maciel read at a mass to the Legionaires in Rome from the Pope was a fraud exposed by none other than Bp. Brian Farrell. The video tape of that mass was edited later by order of Fr. Evaristo Sada.

I've never heard this; where can evidence of this be found?

That is just the point. The evidence was destroyed. Haven't you ever read 1984?

It comes from eyewitness testimony: i.e., the person who was ordered to alter the video tape.

(this is a RARE clarification, since I prefer readers to comment, and not me)

Thanks for allowing anonymous comments.

Matching T's huh? Couldn't they choose something more cultish, like matching plain white shirts and dockers for hikes in 100 degree weather in NH? 50 guys walking the streets of center harbor NH with the same hair cut, the same clotehs, same grin on their face, "Hey, are you guys the white shirt club or somethin'?" We're 'or something'. If I'm feeling sentimental, I go to a public park dressed in slacks and play a little pick up basketball, except I call fouls on myself, compulsively.

How about "the towel trick" on public beaches in CT.


But Brother, there's a bathroom to change in right over there...
Oh no Brother, this is what we've always done to get ready for swimming.
