For a start, parts of the church that have not been touched for years have suddenly been cleaned. The Church Mouse’s favourite haunts are now barely suitable for murine habitation. Furniture has been moved, a couple of old heaters (which will be sorely missed by the Friday evening meditation and discussion groups) and some of the Community’s liturgical artefects have disappeared, the choir loft (in reality a storage area) has been spruced up, and the derelict confessionals, which can only be described as a health hazard, have been cleaned out.
Then there’s a certain visitor from David’s Place (a gathering place for the homeless that is supported by George Pell) who has recently been observing the Sharing of the Meal, taking photographs and copious notes – again without explanation.
And today this newsflash from Michael:
I asked (Fr) Clesio, and Bob and Kerry (self-proclaimed "united-in-one-flesh" neocats from Leichhardt) what events where happening at St Vincent’s and they said they did not know. I asked Bob to swear on the blood of the crucified Christ that he did not know what was happening and he could not answer me, just yelled at me for daring him to tell the truth under my stupid oath.
Clesio said the toilets where needed because the church had none, the builder assured me they were only temporary for WY day. I would believe a dunny builder any day before Clesio.
It looks like the pilgrims are coming, folks!
