I spent most of today at my old school.
I attended mass and the priest spoke about the Good Samaritan. You know, the guy the Jews thought wouldn’t go to heaven but Christ said he would because he loved his neighbor ... well that’s what the priest said.
I told the priest how touched I was. I said I considered myself a nonChurchie helping the “Jews” who were being beaten and bashed by the Capitalists. On the other hand the “Priests” and “Scribes” debated issues from the comfort of their fancy mobile phones and computers while the ‘Jews’ were being robbed of land and resources.
Anyway, the priest told me that many religious leaders don’t wanna rock the boat. By the way he also said that Patrick Pruaitch was the Patron of Radio Maria – kool isn’t it, I mean who am I to cast stones. And so the “Jews” continue suffer around the country while the “Priests” and “Scribes” invoke the name of God on Facebook.
Oh, and did you see page 5 of Murdoch’s paper, you the one former Acting PM Sam Abal went bananas over and accused it of monkey business. Well it reports that the former Civil Aviation and Transport plus and minus Works Minister aka current Treasury Minister Don Polye said PNG has recorded 8 years of economic growth. Amazing! He must be referring to the growth of the tall grass and vines that have covered many Aid Posts, Schools and Air fields around the country.
OK now back to my old school. They had their graduation mass. I can’t remember the one I attended in grade 12 but today’s mass was very moving. There was a line in one hymn that plucked my heart strings: “I am your strong arm”... wow! Like, whoever wrote that must have been in looove or something! Anyway so I come home and see my parents happy to see each other. Yep, they found their strong arm; I think I need mine toooo...
So hows things where you are? I miss the sunset view from Scott’s waterfront mansion. I hope they fixed those stairways to heaven that went crashing into hell. I’m looking forward to seeing ‘hurricane’.
Pray I am not late.
Namo NOT wrong
