Though you are right that the Blessed Virgin is not part of the Trinity, the Catholic teaching is that she is regarded with favor because of her role in being the Mother of God (quite literally in the Orthodox and Byzantine tradition she is called the “Theotokos” which means Mother of God.) Because of this, and because nowhere does it mention that there cannot be apparitions from Mary and other saints, it’s pretty much canon teaching that she appeared to the three children at Fatima among other apparitions.

Dang. She looks like my niece. (Happily married and one kid, so no I won’t introduce you. )

I’d say it’s a heaping helping of hysteria with a dollop of misinformation on top.

I am sorry, I can’t let myself get that excited. I don’t think I could bear the disappointment of another nothingburger. I will hope quietly.

Yeah, afraid of that myself. I’m considering 100% remote positions only at this point.

We are losing folks right and left because of the jab requirement. I’m this close >< to putting in my notice too. Finding another job is one way of staying ahead of these bozos.

There are signs all over the place urging you to wear masks in retail establishments in EPA. A totally unscientific survey (my Mk One eyeballs) guesstimates compliance at less than 25%.

I heard this somewhere before and didn’t put two and two together. Time to get to the vitamin aisle of the super duper market.

Not to toot my own horn but I boiled down the whole inflated COVID response to three words at the beginning of this whole brouhaha: “Follow the money.”

That said, this was an informative read. Hope (but doubt) that someone/some group will be held responsible for this crap.
