The Army of Mary

 Today, six nuns were excommunicated for belonging to the Army of Mary.

What is the Army of Mary? Glad you asked.   It seems that in 1965, God started talking to a woman in Quebec named Marie-Paule.   He told her that she was the reincarnation of the Virgin Mary and that the people should follow her.  You can read all about the Army of Mary here:

 The Army of Mary was founded in 1971.  I started my Catholic High School experience in 1980.  Did you think they could have told me about this?   I might have found my calling.  I might have sold all my worldly possessions save for a pair of stout shoes.   I might have traveled to Quebec.   I might have been able to meet Marie-Paule for myself!

Apparently,  the Virgin Mary makes appearances all over the place. You just have to know where to look.  And Marie-Paule is now 86,  so is Mary looking for a replacement when it is time for her to go?    Maybe Baltimore would be the perfect setting for an epiphany.

You can read all about the tragedy of nuns in Arkansas here:

So I ask of you my fellow bloggers,  mainly those of you here in Baltimore – care to join me for a trip to Little Rock?  Those nuns own their own convent and they aren’t going anywhere.  We could be there in a few days.

And I have a nasty paper cut that needs healing.

The road to Heaven is just a breath away!

    You want to be a nun?
    Seriously though, I have great respect for those who want to dedicate their lives to serving God. I think that it truly is a calling and I have only high praise to say about those who are doing it.
    Hope you are having a good week.
