Being Indigenous in the Lost Church of Z

Vatican Religious Articles Store
"Ancestral medicine"? My mother would be happy to know that Pope Francis' Synod on the Amazon will focus on that. When I'd visit when the children were mere infants and they would not sleep my mother would "fix" a bottle for them with a drop or two of moonshine (no, really...this was the mountains in NC). It worked. So happy to know this "ancestral tradition" will be approved and I'll be able to pass it on to future generations. Gotta crank that still up! Thanx PF!

"Neo-colonialism" in the present is being done by Islam, especially in Europe. While the synod frowns on "colonialism of the past and neo-colonialism of the present", Pope Francis approves colonization by Islam into Christendom, heartily encouraging more and more Muslim immigration into Europe. Therefore it's clear that he thinks the only bad type of colonialism is that which was done by the Church in the past. What must he think of Our Lady of Guadalupe?


The synod is a disaster for the Church which will destroy her. She will disappear like the Church in China did after Francis made his deal with the Communists. We'll have to go so far underground that we won't be able to find a Mass for miles. I'm just sitting around everyday wondering at what point Jesus will intervene and hoping Archbishop Vigano is safe wherever he is because it's more clear now than ever (after reading the Amazon synod docs) that he is in grave danger. 

I quipped that the Church will be the Lost Church of Z....which makes me think that, like James Lynch (currently living in Miami), the hierarchy will not take baths anymore so that when one walks into a church building, the stench will be horrendous in more ways than one. Just think - people will be shamed for being CLEAN! 

"Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. My last confession was three days ago and in that time I have bathed three times - once a day. The horror of it all! All that water wasted for just myself! I'm SO SO sorry! Please forgive me! OMG! What have I done! I promise to be more indigenous and never bathe again unless I happen to be near a stream!"

Now where's that 2013 article (by Rose Eveleth) from the Smithsonian on how to make a shrunken head? So much to learn....Oh, why bother. Maybe Ebay has some for sale. Why have a tiny relic of the True Cross when I can have an entire shrunken head to pray to my ancestors?

My grandmother often rubbed whiskey on my gums when I was teething.It did not put me to sleep, in fact, they told me I laughed in the crib all night long.
Not so bad , since the Pediatricians were prescribing Paragoric for teething children.
I remember the warm licorice taste. Sadly, I do not think you can get this fix all anymore....but it worked GREAT!
"Paregoric, or camphorated tincture of opium, also known as tinctura opii camphorata, is a traditional patent remedy known for its antidiarrheal, antitussive, and analgesic properties."

It sounds like someone went to confession with Father Goodvibes! 8-D

Elpine flower, paregoric! I totally remember it, and distinctly that liquorice smell and taste. It's impossible to forget. Worked well as I remember it.

I'm completely positive the children were all healthier then, our moms were generally paying attention, not overly concerned about how their bums looked in jeggings.

The Church was nicely reflected by Notre Dame. God sends us signs, that was a big one.
For our part we are refusing to give this Apostate Church one dime or any support, except, we do attend a diocesan TLM and only give the faithful priest gift cards, no cash for the parish or diocese, not a dime for Rome. This pope, these men, are nothing but evil, and if Catholics are so comatose they support them after being told Catholics need to learn from cannibals and "dialogue with spirits" (demonic) then what can be said.
Catholicism will go on in the remnant, which will only be found in the TLM. You can't have outright pagans as your leaders and expect to still be Catholics, or even Christians.
