pain is the staff of life

Queen Shiv snapped this penitent in the South of France this past Holy Week. “Very Da Vinci Code, creepy and cool” she writes. I somehow don’t see this movement catching on in North America anytime soon unless a bunch of them were cast in a TV ad flogging? beer ..or each other..though the get-up would not be out of place on a runway during Fashion Week. A few years back it was all the ‘rage’ for men to carry the cross in imitation of Jesus Christ. Now some are saying J.C. never existed. If He ‘works for you’ then I guess He exists. I think this hooded movement is about other stuff. Intimidation, secrecy, style. And I think a lot of men will be drawn to it.

    it’s about time. there’s never been a modern catholic equivalent to the masons and the klan. our poor men had to make do with the knights of columbus, not very edgy.

    I always just assumed that we don’t get to hear about them unless we are them.
