Predictions

So Long, Vatican!

In case you didn’t know (and until a few minutes ago, I sure didn’t), the Vatican will cease to exist in right around 11 hours (as of this writing). A little history: Back in 1917, The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three shepherd children in Portugal. She hung out with them for six months and allegedly imparted to them a series of prophecies known as “The Three Secrets of Fatima.” Over the years, the secrets were revealed by one of the children, Lúcia Santos. The first “secret” was that there’s a place called Hell and it’s full of people on fire. (OK, not so much of a secret.) The second secret was that Russia should embrace Communion, and if they don’t there will be a Second World War. (There was, of course, but I don’t know how much it had to do with Russia’s rejection of Catholicism.) The third secret was allegedly revealed in 2000. It contained a bunch of gobbledygook about angels, flaming swords, soldiers and some kind of “cork-tree.” The church said it was a dead-on prediction about the failed assassination attempt on Pope John Paul II. The third secret has always been somewhat controversial, however, with a lot of Fatima believers saying that the Holy See covered up the real secret, which probably had something to do with the apostasy of the Vatican. Sure enough, The Fatima Movement has all sorts of fun info on how the Catholic Church is now entirely Satanic and engaged in a massive cover-up. According to the text of Lúcia’s “real” third secret, the Vatican will be destroyed sometime tonight unless the cornerstone of St. Peter’s Tomb is removed and transferred to Portugal, so that country can serve as the new seat of the Catholic Church. So far, the Vatican hasn’t announced any sort of move, so it’s looking like a goner. While you wait for the fireworks, scroll down the web page for The Fatima Movement and you’ll get all sorts of awesome Pope-hating rhetoric, including “Vatican II: Mass Destruction” T-shirts, badly Photoshopped pics with mushroom clouds hovering over Rome and a countdown clock to the destruction of the Vatican!

Film

Vatican Endorses Jake and Elwood’s Mission From God

We all know the 1980 film The Blues Brothers is one of the most awesome comedies of all time. But now it’s got God’s seal of approval. Just in time for the film’s 30th anniversary, the Vatican’s official newspaper L’Osservatore Romano has dubbed The Blues Brothers a “Catholic classic.” That makes it recommended viewing for all Catholics. True, Jake and Elwood are on “a mission from God” to reunite their band and keep the orphanage they grew up in from bankruptcy, but the film isn’t dogmatic in any notable sense. With the Papal stamp of approval, however, the film joins a list of dozens more observably religious features such as The Ten Commandments, Jesus of Nazareth, It’s a Wonderful Life, Joan of Arc and Mel Gibson’s The Passion of the Christ.
