What is Coming Home to Roost?

January 10th, 2012, Promulgated by Hopefull

Today’s Democrat and Chronicle is carrying the story of cutting down many trees at St. Mary Downtown to try to eliminate the crow problem and destroy the roost of tens of thousands of crows.  The video is from 2011:|topnews|text|Local News

By all means, play the video (first few seconds is advertising).  Is there some supernatural message behind this confrontation at what is perhaps THE most liberal church in DoR?

    That video was INTENSE! Any more so and it would have been “The Birds.” Also super creepy from a supernatural standpoint. I could have done without the close ups on bird excrement.

  2. Hopefull says:

    The book of Tobit, Chapter 2 verses 7-10; bird droppings are associated with blindness. St. Raphael, pray for us!

    Thankfully St. Mary’s now has a very intelligent and faithful assisting priest on staff. Otherwise, the quality of catechesis in this parish would equal the droppings left behind by the birds.

    I dunno. I was sort of seeing it from a practical point of view. If they could get all those birds to chase away all the other pests in Washington Park these days maybe we’d kill two birds with one stone. Pun intended.

    If we had more creative problem solvers, they could have just moved the Occupy Group to Washington Square and saved a lot of trees.

    Hopeful Include ST Lucy!!!

    I drive by there so often, and think of those creepy crows, and their messy infectious droppings, and always it comes to mind the appropriate connection with St. Mary’s creepy infectious theology (so favored by our soon-to-be-retired bishop)…

    Now the groups of occupy tents… it all seems to go together so well…

    Maybe the crows are little demons who are trying to keep people away from the Church???
