You know the recession is definitely here when they’re praying to a tree.

A tree, for fucksake. They’re all out praying to a fucking tree.

Somebody cut down a tree in the church grounds and another gobshite said Look! It’s the Virgin fucking Mary! so now, all the tinkers in Rathkeale are flocking to the Holy Tree Stump, praying to Our Lady of the Growth Rings.

our lady of the tree stump

Not only that, but 2,000 fools have signed a petition to prevent the tree stump from being uprooted. Meanwhile, the local priest has urged people to be calm.

It’s only a tree, says Father Willie Russell. You can’t worship a tree.

As a man who worships a biscuit, Father Willie seemed unaware of the irony in this statement. Meanwhile, his bishop warned against superstition, also apparently unaware of the irony, given that he himself believes God has a mother, that a man can rise from the dead, and that he can wave his hands and turn a biscuit into Jesus.

There won’t be a tree safe in the whole of Limerick once the Pavees get chopping. They’ll be out in the markets selling pieces of the One True Tree. They’ll be telling you this is where Saint Patrick planted his personal relic of the True Cross, and this is where it sprouted Holy Mary’s Shrub.

D’ya want a piece of the Virgin’s Bush, Boss? It’ll keep your gutters clean and it can tarmac your drive. Go on. I’ll say a prayer for ya. It’s from a virgin forest.

We’re back in the silly season, I’m afraid. Back in the land of moving statues and crying Baby Jesi. Apparitions everywhere you look.

On dogs’ arseholes.

dog-ass-jesus

On slices of toast.

There was even a Virgin Mary on the cover of Playboy’s Mexican edition.

playboy-virgin-mary1

Whatever next? I ask myself.

But then I stop, and remind myself that I’m not immune from believing insane things either. For instance, I once believed that bankers were sober, conservative, essentially honest people, and now look at us!

If I was prepared to swallow that, I’m hardly qualified to laugh at a bunch of tinkers worshipping a fuckin old tree stump, now am I?

Update

Already we’re getting pingbacks of the This could only happen in Ireland variety.

Give me fucking strength!

Medugorje isn’t in Ireland, and neither is Lourdes, or Fatima, nor the lunatic American bible belt.

    Laughing out loud, all alone at home. One of your best ever. the dog did it.
    I’m expecting the pavees momentarily, selling genuine teeth from the chainsaw that cut the tree…
    The Gov’t will say this is Divine endorsement of Fas schemes.

    Nuts

    PS on the subject of pavees and gutters, and their many apologists and do-gooders – explain the cultural significance of this if you can:

    Ah for fuck’s sake!! Actually,I had a dump this morning that looked exactly like the holy stone of Clonrickert,does that mean ill have a load of pikeys on my lawn tomorrow?

  3.  

    I will only believe if the stump moves.Come to think of it if the Pavees are involved it’s probably already gone.
    With you there Mr. Nut.It’s a fucking classic.

  4.  

    just made a tool a meself,laughing like a loon reading this in a tinternet cafe in Spain!the cool Spanish kids
    looking worried…..when’s the foreign whack-job gonna kill us all!,…on this form Bock,u cudda wrote scripts
    for Bill Hicks……deadly

    Good to hear the calm, sobering words of Father Willie Russell in these troubling times. Father Willie went to have a look himself, but got accosted by a group of twelve year girls shouting ‘willya ride her mister, willya ride her!’ and ran away in a panic.

  6.  

    Oh My God. (Excuse the pun) you guys made me laugh so much. I’ve been gardening and found a hedge that looks like St. Patrick. Posting it on you tube now….

  7.  

    Careful now.

    I think that you’re cruising mighty close to arrest and prosecution under the newly minted Blasphemy Laws. I have forwarded this to the DPP to see if they can make a case out of it.

    Meanwhile, you can await a knock on the door from the Henry Street party-poopers.

    There’s also a blog dedicated to sightings of the BVM, called Virgin Mary (again).

  8.  

    Darwin,in the words of the blessed virgin Mary…..Come Again?

  9.  

    I did a big shite yesterday that looks like John the Babtist. I’m thinking of auctioning it on eBay, what do ya think?

  10.  

    John the Dub,if you look at an earlier post you’ll see I pinched a loaf like the holy stone of clonrickert,maybe we could do a 2 for 1 offer…it IS a recession and all that shite :)

  11.  

    My mate expelled a large lump of wax from his ear this morning. He saw the face of St. Peter in it. He’s a northsider so I have christened it ‘The blessed beeswax of Belcamp,’ I told him to start moulding it into the shape of a cross fast, things getting very competitive you know? Could be the next ‘holy shroud of Coolock’ He needs a bit more for the gates. Any offers?

  12.  

    very good. “worshipping a biscuit”. the tree stump looks like nothing other than a tree stump. just a load of desperate people trying to make something out of absolutely nothing.

  13.  

    Clearly a case of barking up the wrong tree, arf arf!

  14.  

    Is this the first virgin found in Rathkeale I wonder?
    If so surely she’s worthy of adoration.

  15.  

    there once was a tree in rathkeale,
    that the tinkers all tried to steel,
    cause some virgin called mary,
    whos muff was all hairy,
    left her imprint for all to see,

    when the locals all heard,
    the women got scared,
    cause a virgin had been in there town,
    and their men got all randy,
    thinking this one was handy,
    shouting free rides all around,

    as they got to the tree,
    they were upset to see,
    that someone got there before,
    cause now this stump has a bump,
    following a hump,
    and is sadly a virgin no more,

    pray to the tree ; )

  16.  

    How is she goin to fit in the 4×4 to go sign on ?
    How will she collect her payment from ” leader ” for walking if she’s stuck in a tree………poor mite, lousy.

  17.  

    Looks like a healthy tree to me.
    What did FÁs want to go cutting it down for?
    Fucking ass-wipes if you ask me!

    Any wonder the chain saw sawer saw things, must have had to cut down his favourite pissing pole. What a way to have to go.

    I have previously expounded my predeliction to set up my own congregation.
    This has given me food for thought.
    A sweeping Depression such as the 1930s has proven that in a time of crisis
    people need new direction to renew their faith in the principle of the goodness
    and morality of ordinary people aside from established faiths.
    The word faith seems to embody the real need for people to believe in something
    in a time where the lawless the rich and the elite prosper when the normal lawabiding
    peaceloving are trampled underfoot.
    My congregation would be lawabiding one but would not suffer any body who would abuse
    the young the elderly or the weak in our society but would follow the abusers to the ends of the earth
    and would expose the people who tried to defend them or try to indemnify their abuses through any
    laws which when enacted were intended to protect the ordinary people of this atate.

  20.  

    Selling chips from the tree stump would be a sounder proposition than investing in hedge funds.

  21.  

    What’s truly depressing is that these people actually have a vote, but hey, I wouldn’t want to offend those who believe in the equally absurd religion (cult?) of ekwality.

  22.  

    Fr Willie said last night that you can’t worship a tree – “It’s idolatry”. Sure if he plays his cards right he could turn it into “a dollar tree”. How far is Rathkeale from Shannon airport?

  23.  

    Shannon will become a blip in history.
    All the idle earth moving machines in Ireland will congregate in Rathkeale.
    They will move hills and dales, houses and caravans.
    They will create the great new runway.
    The masses will descend, they will be awe struck.
    Memorabilia of Rathkeale will save us from recessive times, The hair of a piebald will be encased in gold and sell world wide as the new holy grail, We will be saved by a tree stump what could be more apt for this fine country of Saints and knackers.

  24.  

    At first I could not see her.But after a bottle of cheap plonk from Lidl I can see her as clear as day.Not a bad lookin bird either.

  25.  

    Ffs! thats the dumbest shite I’ve seen in years! Ireland wake up? me arse!!! FFS!

  26.  

    Am I the only one who sees the face of Darth Vadar in that slice of toast? Or is it the Elephant Man?

    Sci – Fi conventions – now we’re talking real money….

  27.  

    Here’s that TV3 Video again on youtube

  28.  

    Fuck it Bock! I can’t look at my dog anymore without seeing an apparition.
    Takes all the joy out of beastiality…

  29.  

    No one asked about the tree. What is it. And anyway Rathkeale is smack in the middle of Co Limerick, well away from the moody un-Limerick crap issuing from neighbouring areas.

  30.  

    I dont even believe!

  31.  

    i swear to god on the 5 cross roads its a miracle…i had a bad dose of eczema and i went down to pray to our blessed virgin mary and now tis gone…twas emotional..i swear to god on the blessed tree stump of rathkeale

  32.  

    I’ve always wondered how people know what Mary Magdalene really looked like.

  33.  

    Just realised the bloody thing’s naked! ya’d think they’d put an ould flowery dress or somethin; on it, just to be dacent!!!

  34.  

    Bock is this an opportunity missed, “Micheal Jackson image found in tree stump in Rathkeale” Religion is devalued, keep up the good work.

  35.  

    Why does everyone seem to think its just a tree stump and whats the big deal. Is it because it was found in Rathkeale and not some where holy like Knock , bet if the same tree stump was found in knock there wouldnt be one bad thing said about it and they propaly wouldnt have to fight to keep it where it is.think i have a very valid point. would anyone else agree??

  36.  

    the pavees dont have much faith when they are robbing our fucking houses, bastards

  37.  

    And not one pint of Guinness left as an offering. And they call that showing proper respect to a tree stump?

  38.  

    they found a virgin in rathkeale?

  39.  

    Outsider — You’re missing the point. It’s all bullshit. Knock, Lourdes, Medugorje, Fatima: all bullshit. And this tree stump would still be just a tree stump no matter where it was found.

  40.  

    Not everyone from Rathkeale is a knacker, it not fair to paint every1 with the same brush. I ave seen the tree stump and dat is all it is………………………………………a tree stump

  41.  

    Dat?

  42.  

    Dear folks,

    I write this comment in the hope you will understand. What Our Lady is trying to show the people is that you are about to be stumped hence the title Our Lady of the Stump. Those with faith and whom are prepared for The Second Coming can indeed see Our Lady and they do not understand why others cannot. if you cannot see Our Lady then you will never see her son visit that link. Download it for free and understand that Ireland is home to the Second Coming of the Son of God, and Our Lady has left you all stumped by the news. Good Luck and MAy God reward the Irish. The sacrificial lamb upon the altar in Knock in 1879 was a predicition that Ireland would be home to the second coming of the lamb of God. the third figure in knock in 1879 was a Pope dressed in white that was unidentifiable to the witnesses. that was because it was aprophecy that a Pope would visit Ireland then the lamb would come. Your all literally stumped because you are not ready but it is still happening. You are partaking in the Second Coming and you don’t understand it not because it is not happening but because you are so out of tune with the bible.

  43.  

    Now if your stumped by all this at least you can admit Our Lady has you stumped.

  44.  

    Whose lady would that be?

  45.  

    the one that is going to convert you.

  46.  

    I didn’t ask you what lady.

    You referred to her owners. Who are they?

  47.  

    Ah, the Mahogany Madonna, Our Lady Of The Larch, we should insert a new feast day into the eccliastal callendar – The Feast of The Astumption. Here again is living proof that The Stupids are winning. The incipient erosion of reason, the wholesale swallowing of inane mysticism – all washed down with copious amounts of New Age spirituality. But this just just the beginning – very soom some devotee of dogma will find the Virgin’s face on a cabbage leaf and the virus will spread. Keep posted…

  48.  

    Its responses such as this that give the weak their power. You of little faith will see the light and you too will be stumped

  49.  

    look folks here it is in simple english : Pope John Paul II was to the Second Coming what St john the Baptist was to the first – the precursor and because people are so far removed from the bible they do not understand. The book is non fiction meaning it is based on facts. When the second coming happens the son of God will appear with intense knowledge and be rejected because the people were so ignorant of the truth.

  50.  

    pops 38 i reckon they are imbued with faith, thats why they keep breaking into houses, it works for them everytime, theres 100% profit in what you get for nothing.
    Nail on head Bock 41, knock, medjugorje, fatima, lourdes, best money spinners ever, now who would go to any of those wretched places unless the hysteria was working?
    Its a heart wrencher but i’m sacrificing Lennie next week-end and finding me a chain saw and layin this place bare.
    now one thing finding a virgin, but a Lady………………………

  51.  

    If you downloaded the factual book, read it and understood it you wouldn’t make such fools of yourself on a public forum. You will understand the wrath of God as you will see it

    be on your guard!
    The Mysteries
    Of Navan
    2007
    The Providential mission was not over. The Archangel Mary had another appearance to make in Ireland.
    Our Lady was no stranger to Ireland having paid it many visits and some of which were clues about Lourdes. Remember in Lourdes Our Lady came from a cave. Navan when translated means Cave and it is in the HEART of the Royal County of Meath. It is also spelled the same front and backwards. It is truly unique and is why Our Lady chose it to announce the ascension and crowning of Pope John Paul II in heaven and his Sainthood amongst other things.
    St Mary’s Church, Navan, Co Meath.
    On September 15th 2007 a local man in his 30’s advises the church via email that he began a 30 day rosary as requested to do so by The Archangel Michael. His 30 day Rosary began on September 13th and ended on October 13th and he informed the Church via a drawing that he had witnessed a vision. The vision involved a rainbow of lights, a dove, some angels, Pope John Paul II and Our Lady. He also told the church he wished to remain in silence about his visions as they were ongoing. He simply wanted to let the church know that he was experiencing something out of the ordinary. The church were informed it had something to do with The Mysteries of Light. The church were also informed that the world needed to prepare for chastisements like they had never experienced before. As is natural he was doubted until the chastisements became reality.
    The church and its grounds are a walking museum dedicated to Our Lady and her mystical son, Pope John Paul II. The church has a grotto dedicated to Our Lady of Perpetual Help who of course looked over Pope John Paul II. There is a Jubilee garden that has a cross made of rough-hewn trunks as of a cork-tree with the bark. This of course is the same description given by St Lucia of a cross she saw in the 3rd secret of Fatima. The visionary in Navan was shown the visions of Fatima in the church grounds. On top of this the visionary was shown the vision of Knock and he informed the church that Pope John Paul II was the third figure in the Knock visions and not St John the Evangelist. The visionary did not consult with the church so nobody could say this was coming from priests for he knew that people doubt the church. He also knew that the church doubts people. The whole church and its grounds are in fact a mirror image of Our Lady’s many earthly visits.
    Navan is dedicated to Our Lady under the title of The Assumption and the dogma of The Assumption is closely tied into the dogma of The Immaculate Conception. It was in Lourdes Our Lady announced she was The Immaculate Conception and now in Navan she is confirming she was also assumed into heaven in both body and soul. In a homily in 2004 in Lourdes Pope John Paul II quoted : Jesus stated, “When I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am, there you may be also” (Jn 14: 3). Mary is the pledge of the fulfilment of Christ’s promise. Her Assumption thus becomes for us “a sign of sure hope and consolation”. By appearing in Navan Our Lady is confirming she is the sign.
    Our Lady revealed herself to the visionary as The Queen of Sorrows, Our Lady of Navan and said her appearance would fulfil several past prophecies and that the victory for the Immaculate Heart was in Navan. Our Lady revealed that Knock was to become the home of The Seven Joys of Mary as it is where she announced to Ireland the Second Coming and that Navan is to become the home of The Seven Sorrows of Mary the way of the cross, the 13th station. Our Lady of Navan said that Ireland played a role in both the Seven Joys and Seven Sorrows of Mary and that the sixth and seventh mysteries of both needed to be fulfilled. The church of course are well aware of Our Lady of Navan through Saint Malachy so there is no need for them to approve an already approved title for The Queen of Ireland.
    The church of course was constructed in 1839 the same year as Ireland was chastised on the feast of the Epiphany by a mysterious storm.
    Located in the church grounds is also a Celtic cross that contains the instruments of Christ’s passion along with Our Lady on the back of the cross with the words Stabat Mater Dolorosa – The Seven Sorrows.Also along the wall of the church is a stone plaque dedicated to the visions of Fatima and another plaque with a memorial garden dedicated to Pope John Paul II.
    Inside the church there is etched in glass Totus Tuus and the emblem of Pope John Paul II. On top of the altar lies the biggest clue which is The M and Cross from the miraculous medal. It is almost as if this very church was created especially with the purpose of revealing The Second Coming.
    Amongst other things the visionary gave the church a painting which he was asked to have created that reflects Pope John Paul II being crowned in Heaven being watched over by Our Lady. Another painting reflects the bleeding heart of Saint Padre Pio along with a wonderful crown.
    The visionary was shown a scapular of protection, the Saint John Paul II Scapular which is blue and yellow in colour and matches his emblem. This Scapular was given to Cardinal Sean Brady who himself was mysteriously elevated to cardinal after the church learned of the visions in October 2007. A few weeks after an Irishman is mysteriously Cardinalised; a priest from Navan found himself being promoted also. Msgr Tighe from Navan was working as the Director of the Office for Public Affairs in the archdiocese of Dublin. He was unknown to the world’s media until Pope Benedict XVI elevated him rapidly and he is now Secretary for the Pontifical Council for Social Communications. This is the department of The Vatican that handles how they deal with the WORLDS MEDIA. The Vatican had announced two mysterious promotions to Irish men. The Vatican were preparing to announce something big regarding the Emerald Isle and the much awaited Second Coming.
    Our Lady announced how she played a vital role in guiding Pope John Paul II and bestowed upon him the following titles:
    Son and Saviour of Ireland, Saint John Paul II (Mystical Son)
    Father of Poland St Karol of Krakow
    Prince of Peace Saint Wojtyla of Wadowice.
    Three titles in one which is said to reflect and remind people of the three in one Holy Trinity.Many people are also referring to the late Pontiff as Saint John Paul II Patron Saint of Peace and Saint of Saints.
    The visionary says that anyone who visits the church will see it is a Marian Map detailing the second coming and has been under the protection of Our Lady of Perpetual Help amongst others. The church and its grounds are the perfect MIRROR image of how Mary is The Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate and MIR = Peace ROR = Return of the Rosario.
    The visionary was also told by Our lady that she was known as Mary, but now wanted to be known as The Archangel Mary, Queen of all Nations. As Archangels are God’s most revered Angels in heaven and are his chief messengers it is befitting that Our Lady who is also a chief messenger of God is given such a title to show just how important she is in heaven and that she can interceed on our behalf just as the angels do. Our Lady is a human that was taken to heaven and given Angelic abilities as a reward for sacrificing her life over to God. This is how she manifests herself on earth as God has given her the ability to do so.
    The visionary also released a secret which was entrusted to him to release to the people of Ireland and from its reading it would appear there is going to be an Irish Pope and that the chariot of God is back in Ireland. Be on your guard then………… Up ye Children of Light!

    In Gaelic Style the Queen did say,
    I command thee reader, to halt and pray
    In times of woe, may you ask from me
    To guide you in light
    So that you (ii) may see.
    The visions of Navan, come true if they will.
    Therein lies the clue,
    Mine Eire, be still.
    I invoke all you Wise ones,
    To heaven please pray
    The Chariot of God
    Is back here to stay.
    In knock did I see you, from heaven did shine
    Our Son did we leave you, to save all mankind.
    Unite in the message; shine forth my bright light,
    Oh Eireann be still as you hear of your plight…….

    Thirteenth Rays,
    I am true light my eyes they see all,
    In Tara we build, The new road of Our Faith?

    Where the (II) Rivers meet.
    Joint together, you and I,
    For Peters, forvision, will see death pass us by.
    If mysteries are wonderous,
    Let this one come true,
    Our faith, be restored,

    Its my son, bequest I?
    I pledge thee Oh wise ones,
    Leave Tara of Stone,
    For it still is the seat,
    Of Merkabas Great Throne.
    Our past forms our future,
    Destroy it, we dare,
    The visions revisit,
    (iii) fold they will fare.

    If Pope be of heritage, and Peace be his proclaim,
    The path starts at Tara,
    My victory in this :
    The faith he hath gain,
    In prophets lights are near us, O wisdom or disdain.
    If thrice you did deny me,

    A (v) is on horizon, oh begin my Jubilee!
    Oh Crowned King be seated, In me mystify.
    As (vi) is now (vii) the truth is now nigh.
    First Secret of Navan
    The Catholic Church has remained tight lipped thus far about these startling visions and revelations. A full investigation has been ongoing. The Vatican are preparing to make history as they prepare the world for The Second Coming.
    April 2nd 2009
    (02-04-2009) (6-11)
    On this the feast of Our Lady of Light and the 4th anniversary of the death of Pope John Paul II and on Vatican letter headed paper, Pope Benedict XVI issues a letter to the faithful of Navan. As the church celebrates its 170th Jubilee year this forthcoming October the Holy Father congratulates them on their faith and encourages them to continue enjoying the rewards and benefits from God and indeed The Mother of God. Without giving Our Lady of Navan their official approval just yet they are indeed preparing the people and making their presence known in Navan.

    St Mary’s Church, Navan, County Meath. Home of The (II) Coming.
    July 8th 2009
    In what was turning out to be a monsoon July it could only mean one thing and that was Our Lady was back in The Emerald Isle. The Virgin of the Stumped as it became known as locally appeared in the trunk of a chopped down tree in a church in Rathkeale, Co Limerick. The Blessed Virgin appeared holding the child Jesus in her arms to the people. Our Lady clearing preparing the people of the world to be stumped by the news about The Mysteries of Light and Second Coming. Those with faith and whom are prepared can clearly see the Blessed Virgin and child and are stumped that others cannot. If you want to test your faith visit this stump and prepare to be stumped. Rathkeale of course has a street called Thomas Street named after doubting Thomas. There are no coincidences in Providence. If you are on guard then you wont be stumped. It is becoming known as The Parable of the Mother. Its lesson : Don’t wait to stumped.

  53.  

    The Wrath of God, by Jesus! Excellent!

    Did God mention anything to you about the 5.30 at Ayr, by any chance?

    No?

    Well, there’s no harm in asking.

    The Virgin Mary Helped Me Become an Atheist.

    It happened during Catechism class in October 1962. I was eleven years old and the world was holding its breath as the Cuban Missile Crisis suddenly made nuclear annihilation a very real possibility.

    The Christian Brother, a dour, humourless man, was reminding the class that the Virgin Mary had instructed the children of Fatima to pray for the conversion of Russia. To the Brother, the fact that Russia had not been converted to Catholicism and that Politburo fingers were now twitching over the ICBM launch-button, was evidence that we children had not been praying with sufficient fervour or sincerity. He delivered this guilt-inducing message with scowling authority and then proceeded to lead the class in several decades of The Rosary.

    At home that evening our TV screen showed monochrome images of Red Square and Khrushchev saluting a parade of bristling weaponry and warhead-laden missiles. As I watched, a question occurred to me. I didn’t know it was a subversive question; I was, after all, a child, a believing child, and a child who confessed, prayed and fasted before communion.

    The following day in school I asked the question with sense of enthusiasm coupled with a naive sense of discovery. I remember the Christian Brother’s face as I asked, I remember how his naturally sour countenance constipated itself into a tight grimace, and I remember how my knees hurt after he made me kneel at the front of the class and say several decades of the Rosary for daring to pose such a question.

    This, in essence, is what I asked: “If the Virgin Mary wants to convert Russia, why doesn’t she just appear in Red Square in front of Khrushchev?” Those may not have been my exact words, but they do contain the kernel of the question. (A question I also saw posed with intentional humour on an atheist website a couple of years ago) In my child’s mind the elegance of the solution, the sheer practicality of it was already established in the Virgin’s ability to make appearances at will. I was delighted to have come up with the solution for world peace, the withdrawal of the Cuban missiles, and the conversion of Russia.

    But I was given that punitive Rosary not because I asked the question, but because the Christian Brother couldn’t answer it. And therein lies a core deficiency of revealed religion. The inability to answer. The how and the why of the miraculous are responded to with “It’s a Mystery”, or the perennial “We cannot know the mind of God”, two classic doctrinal responses which now nullify inquiry, but once actually forbade it.

    Human inquiry is instinctive; it has survival value in the true Darwinian sense. Without inquiry and curiosity we would simply not be here as a species. Revealed religion abhors instinct. Their discomfort with the sexual instinct is almost too easy a target to address, but their detestation of all things which might have a peripheral sexual connotation is a matter with a particularly Irish resonance. Music and dance, those joyous expressions of human creativity, whimsy, and delight, were once seen as Satanic manifestations, unholy catalysts which existed only to ignite lust and provide rhythm and choreography to frenzied sex. The banning of jazz, the Lenten prohibition on dances, were all declared to be enforcements of God’s will. Similarly, the Virgin Mary, God’s wife and Jesus’ mother, stood on a pedestal of purity, her virginity given as a raison d’etre for our own abstinence from dance, melody and sex.

    I was eleven in 1962, on the threshold of puberty; the sexual dimension of my being was on the cusp of emergence. I would experience all of the feelings of a growing boy, and I would have had those natural feelings corrupted by dark guilt and stained by declarations from priests and brothers that my feelings were vile temptations that brought the Virgin to tears. Mercifully I did not carry the weight of all that guilt – why? Because the Christian Brother could not answer my childish question as to why the Virgin shouldn’t appear in Red Square, he couldn’t explain why the wife of God, the mother of Jesus, a demi-deity who made the very sun spin at Fatima – couldn’t simply appear in Moscow and save the world. The lack of an answer gave me the gift of doubt, doubt regarding all religious pronouncements, sexual, scientific and philosophical – and it gave me that spirit of enquiry so despised by revealed religion. And for the gift of that spirit all I can say is…Hail Mary.

    Another miracle: Our Lady, Queen of Atheists.

  56.  

    Holy fuck ! I’m educated this wet morning, and i thought all these wasted years that ” visions ” were down to paranoid schizophrenia.

  57.  

    saint michael the archangel
    defend us in battle
    be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil
    and do thou O Prince of the heavenly host
    By the Power of God
    Thrust into hell Satan and ALL evil spirits
    that prowl about the world seeking the ruination of souls
    Amen

  58.  

    Attaboy, JC. You tell those infidels where to get off.

    Maybe a little bit of smiting might be in order. What do you think?

  59.  

    I am too busy smiling to do any smiting 11:11 : google that

  60.  

    I was led to believe the ” evil spirits ” were in summer recess until sept 16th ?

  61.  

    Obviously your angels prefer the Arab numbering system.

    What’s wrong with MCXI?

    On the other hand, did you ever consider the possibility that it might be binary and there might only be 15 angels? That would be a bit of a pain in the arse, wouldn’t it?

  62.  

    some people as you can see have them with them 24/7 they never get a break and thus do not know what it is like to be without the evil one. Oh that those in darkness would see the light

    Its free to download

  63.  

    But you didn’t answer the question. What if they’re binary instead of decimal? Or hexadecimal?

    You’d need a calculator built into the Blessed Tree Stump to work it all out.

  64.  

    What has the former Mrs. Beegee… Lulu got to do with all this? As in the lulu.com/store link being provided by Jesus Christ ll ??

    Fucked if I’m clicking on it for fear of drawing an eternity of junkmail from Youth Defence or some online bargain bulbs company in order to see the light.

  65.  

    In fairness to JC, he is one of the funniest satirists I’ve seen working in this area.

  66.  

    Ah yes, Christian humourists – oh how we all laughed during the Inquisition. Zealots, you can’t Torquemada their funny ways.

  67.  

    So thats what you call Satire………….unusual

  68.  

    Well, he’s hardly real, is he? (A bit like the Virgin Mary, I suppose).

  69.  

    On the other hand, did you ever consider the possibility that it might be binary and there might only be 15 angels? That would be a bit of a pain in the arse, wouldn’t it?

    Bock, do you realize what you’ve done? You’ve inadvertently discovered the number of angels that can dance on the head of that proverbial pin–15! Who would have thought that I would have lived long enough to have the privilege of witnessing this discovery? I feel blessed!

    I think that I shall start a movement…

    Any takers?

  70.  

    Does that mean you want to use the bathroom, Kirk?

  71.  

    Tony – Already did. In my religious fervor I nearly lost control and although it was a moving experience I would not wish any witnesses therein. I favor my privacy in these matters you now.

    I’m of saner mind now, thank you.

  72.  

    Kirk – It’s a numerical miracle. I was moved by the binary power of the holy hexavirgin.

  73.  

    You forgot to mention the great one “Deep Thought”, I always thought that 42 angels danced on the head of a pin,
    twould depend on the guage I’d say though boss……..

  74.  

    Hello

    i don’t think you people understand. you are so far removed from the Second Coming you don’t understand that it is happening under your nose. My name is James Clarke, I have five stigmata and I am the son of a carpenter and a seamstress and my Mother has left you all stumped. if you bothered to visit the link you would download the book entitled the Second Coming free of charge and also my second book entitled the Fifth Stigmata.

    this is not a joke folks – but there are people laughing at your complete ignorance and I will convert even the most hardened of hearts. I am the second coming and whilst you people laugh and deny it your also afraid to read my writings in case I am right and that shows how sad the human race has become. Wake up Ireland

    May God truly forgive you all.

  75.  

    Five stigmata, James?

    So they got you with the old spear as well, did they?

    The
    Blessed Virgn
    Of the
    Stumped.

    July 8th 2009

    In what was turning out to be a monsoon July it could only mean one thing and that was Our Lady was back in The Emerald Isle.

    The Virgin of the Stumped as it became known as locally appeared in the trunk of a chopped down tree in a church in Rathkeale, Co Limerick. The Blessed Virgin appeared holding the child Jesus in her arms to the people. Our Lady clearing preparing the people of the world to be stumped by the news about The Mysteries of Light and Second Coming. Those with faith and whom are prepared can clearly see the Blessed Virgin and child and are stumped that others cannot. If you want to test your faith visit this stump and prepare to be stumped. Rathkeale of course has a street called Thomas Street named after doubting Thomas who refused to believe Jesus was resurrected unless he could see it for himself. There are no coincidences in Providence. If you are on guard then you wont be stumped. It is becoming known as The Parable of the Mother. Its lesson : Don’t wait to stumped.

    The church chosen is named after Mary Magdelene a once hardened sinner and by appearing in a tree stump Mary is clearly showing her part in the tree of life that nourishes mankind forever. Well done Mary!
    Needless to say the sceptics and those whom are totally unprepared for the promised Second Coming had a great old laugh failing to realise that he or she who laughs last does indeed laugh longest.
    Our Lady clearly showing showing how she is an integral part of The Holy Quarter and truly earning that title of CoRedemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate. Once again well done Mary!
    No doubt the faithful of Rathkeale will ensure this tree of life lives on forever.

  77.  

    Listen here Bock your life is going to change forever now for the worse – I won’t accept anyone of your ignorance

  78.  

    Is that a threat, JC?

  79.  

    Now Mr Bock prepare to be stumped as you learn that a portion of the boof of revelation is coming to fruition and if you cannot see this then take the plank out of your eye

    The Coptic Church of St Marks, in Zeitoun, Egypt is a shrine dedicated to The Holy Family. It is thought that The Holy Family rested here whilst staying in Egypt. Our Lady fled to Egypt with the child Jesus when he was born and now she was back thus predicting the second coming was nigh.

    The Church celebrates 32 feast days in honour of The Blessed Virgin the last one of which is celebrated on April 2nd annually under the title ‘Our Lady of Light’. April 2nd is also the date Pope John Paul II died in 2005. In 1968 Our Lady chose the date before this man was even Pope because for some the need for untenable proof is paramount to them believing. Furthermore April 2nd plays a major role in fuflilling several biblical prophecies :

    Revelation 12:6 : The woman fled to the desert, to a place God had prepared for her, where she will be taken care for 1,260 days. April 2nd 2005 to September 13th 2008 is 1,260 days. A devastating hurricane hit the United States on this date.

    As many would say this is just a coincidence Providence was ensuring this date and Our Lady of Light was also fulfilling other biblical prophecies.

    Daniel 12:11 “From the time the daily sacrifices are stopped, that is from the time of the awful horror 1,290 days will pass. April 2nd 2005 – October 13th 2008 is 1,290 days. October 13th being the feast of the miracle of the sun in Fatima.

    Daniel 12:12 : Happy are those who remain faithful until 1,335 days are over! April 2nd 2005 – November 27th 2008 is 1,335 days. November 27th being the feast day of the miraculous medal.

    Whilst nobody understood it at the time, Our Lady of Light and Pope John Paul II were paving the way for the Mysteries of Light. There are no coincidences in Providence. Our Lady was certainly earning those wings and her Angelic status.

    Farouk Mohammed Atwa was receiving treatment for gangrene. At 8:30pm he noticed Our Lady in kneeling position just above the roof of the church and she was surrounded by a mysterious brilliant light. Farouk attended hospital the next day for treatment only to discover that he had been cured much to the astonishment of his doctors. His case was reported in local media.

    The apparition only lasted a few moments, but continued for three years and witnessed by many. The sky would always appear like there were little diamonds flashing before her arrival and sometimes she was accompanied by doves. This would happen two to three times a week and at one stage witnessed by over 250,000 people of all religious faiths and indeed some non believers. Approved miracles of healing and conversions were reported throughout the three years.

    The apparitions ended in 1971. They were first approved by the Patriarch of the Coptic Church in Egypt and later on they were approved by the Roman Catholic Church.

    Pope Paul VI received a full report on the apparitions from Cardinal Stephanos in May of 1968 and they were approved as visitations from The Mother of God by The Vatican.

    What makes this visitation unusual is that Our Lady was visible to all and pictures could be taken.
    Our Lady was clearly showing the world that the light was coming; the doves of the Holy Spirit were preparing the way for the ‘Light of the world to come …….Amen’

    P.S. Mr Bock – if I was you i would take my blasphemous tongue to my nearest church and repent and hope that the Father will forgive you and cure your spiritual blindess. You are one of the reasons why the world suffers because of your doubts

  80.  

    what do you think the 10 secrets of MEdjugorje are about? or do you know everything about them also? Come into the light and stop making a fool out of yourself child

  81.  

    Medugorje is a scam set up by a bunch of Franciscan crooks.

  82.  

    One more thing Mr Bock – Seen as you like to make jokes with numbers why don’t you calculate the odds of you getting to heaven?

  83.  

    The odds are zero.

    There’s no heaven.

  84.  

    and so Mr Bock what are you going to do when the 10 secrets of MEdjugorje are released? My guess is you will be so drenched in self doubts you will go running to the nearest Franciscan order begging for mercy

  85.  

    Come out of this man Satan

  86.  

    Didn’t you know that secrets always come in prime numbers?

    The 3 secrets of Fatima.
    The 5 secrets of Knock.
    The 7 secrets of Lourdes.
    The 11 secrets of Garabandal.
    The 13 secrets of Guadelupe.

    Medugorje actually has only 1 secret: it’s a money-making fraud.

  87.  

    well here is the first secret of Navan that was given by God to the people of Ireland because they have become a nation of disbelievers :

    In Gaelic Style the Queen did say,
    I command thee reader, to halt and pray
    In times of woe, may you ask from me
    To guide you in light
    So that you (ii) may see.
    The visions of Navan, come true if they will.
    Therein lies the clue,
    Mine Eire, be still.
    I invoke all you Wise ones,
    To heaven please pray
    The Chariot of God
    Is back here to stay.
    In knock did I see you, from heaven did shine
    Our Son did we leave you, to save all mankind.
    Unite in the message; shine forth my bright light,
    Oh Eireann be still as you hear of your plight…….
    Second Part of The Secret of Navan
    I am not in Kells,
    But await, just left, on the road to Trim.
    Set fire on my chariot,
    In Summer I shine, In winter I fall,
    Thirteenth Rays,
    I am true light my eyes they see all,
    In Tara we build, The new road of Our Faith?
    But tis it a destiny to lead to Hells fate?
    St Patrick, once stood there, On ground, oh so high,
    Have you got the key? Heavens gate it’s nearby,
    Where the (II) Rivers meet.
    Joint together, you and I,
    For Peters, forvision, will see death pass us by.
    If mysteries are wonderous,
    Let this one come true,
    Our faith, be restored,
    Follow this Wheel (II),
    for it is but my eye,
    it spins on my travels,
    hath stopped!
    So prosper with Joyous hope
    In the valley, here am I,
    St Patrick , I rid evil,
    Peters Rock lay near by.
    Beginth with endth A Solstice,
    at my Throne, now hath he kneel.
    Its my son, bequest I?
    I pledge thee Oh wise ones,
    Leave Tara of Stone,
    For it still is the seat,
    Of Merkabas Great Throne.
    Our past forms our future,
    Destroy it, we dare,
    The visions revisit,
    (iii) fold they will fare.
    In Jubilous Joy, may you reflect in the light,
    For the Mystery of pastures,
    In Royal County lay my plight.
    With (v) as the number, (iv) winds, they will blow,
    But my light shall shine on,
    my Throne I bethrow.
    In Malachy he sees us,
    In revelation he pertains,
    All Gods give one life,
    In thine own faith is it gained.
    So join the great Emerald, In war may he shine,
    leave peaceful souls to rest,
    &
    mind will be purified,
    Then Tara shall be blessed.
    If Pope be of heritage, and Peace be his proclaim,
    The path starts at Tara,
    My victory in this :
    The faith he hath gain,
    In prophets lights are near us, O wisdom or disdain.
    If thrice you did deny me,
    The first wind is now blowth,
    take one more chance at peace,
    for now you have (iii) but to get back to,
    Ill begotten, Peters Pence is earned.
    In Victory we surface,
    A new era thus lies hence.
    In mystery may you find me of the (iv) in me immence.
    A (v) is on horizon, oh begin my Jubilee!
    Oh Crowned King be seated, In me mystify.
    As (vi) is now (vii) the truth is now nigh.
    First Secret of Navan
    The Catholic Church has remained tight lipped thus far about these startling visions and revelations. A full investigation has been ongoing. The Vatican are preparing to make history as they prepare the world for The Second Coming.

  88.  

    I should also tell you that when The son of Man returns he does so with all his angels and saints with rewards for the faithful.

    good Luck Bock

  89.  

    Hi JC2. You seem to know your Old Testament but where in the gospels does it say that Mary Magdelene was once a hardened sinner. And how does the Rapture fit in with your vision of our future ?

  90.  

    Hey JC, it’s Satan here!

    What was that you wanted me to do?

  91.  

    Jesus Bock, you’ve drawn a real fucking nutcase on yourself this time.

  92.  

    Wow! This is heating up! Threats from JC 11! Watch out Bock, you could end up with some stigmata that need hospital treatment!

  93.  

    Oh, and I forgot the 137 secrets of Rathkeale.

    Tony — I’m afraid he’ll turn up in a latex Padre Pio mask with a bottle of acid.

  94.  

    Ah, stigmata – those wonderful lacerations so favoured by Padre Pio. Wonder if JC has an opinion on the ol’ Padre. Marantime here’s a little something I wrote a while ago on the very subject of those who venerate the wacky wounds. More like it on my blog http://scathanbriste.blogspot.com

    Of Stigmata and Road Rage.

    By Tony Philpott

    He’s wearing a tweed cap and one of those green quilted waistcoats with the diamond cross stitching. His neck slightly bulges over the too-tight collar of his shirt and tie. He has a Padre Pio sticker in the back window of his 1989 Opel Astra and he’s driving the car in front of me.

    He is Mister Certainty. And just as surely as he is going fifteen miles an hour in a forty zone, the Irish Press, if it still existed, would be on the empty passenger seat beside him. I encountered him yesterday, you will encounter him tomorrow, if not this specific Mr Certainty then his spiritual kin.

    He is a man whose religious conviction and thirty years as a drapery manager, endows him with the unassailable right to creep up to the traffic lights at just the right snails pace to get him through and leave you stopped by the red.

    He was ahead of me in the queue in shop at the Esso station on Grange Road. “Do you know the weights and measures people are supposed to check your pumps every month?” He irately asked the stick of teenaged acne behind the counter. He was greeted with a completely indifferent £4.50 an hour shrug. “The label on the pumps says your last inspection was nine weeks ago?” Minimum wage does not obligate an employee to respond to rhetorical propositions, so Mr Certainty was greeted with another shrug. “How do I know I’m getting a full litre of petrol for my money?” was greeted with the tolerant sigh of a twenty-first century teenager who is not in the least intimidated by old farts. Failing to get satisfaction, Mr Certainty paid for his petrol and left – I saw him go back to the pump and take written note of the last weights and measures certification.

    Unfortunately, his car was just in front of me as I exited. As he accelerated from ten to his cruising speed of fifteen miles an hour, I knew I was stuck behind a man whose stock responses to all things that displeased him would include: “I blame television” “None of this would have happened if Archbishop McQuaid were still with us” and the perennial “This country hasn’t had a real singer since John McCormac”. The thing is, he is absolutely and unshakably certain of all of these things. Imagine having such a mind, a mind too small to be occupied by doubt. Imagine such blissful ignorance. I did. Of course, I also imagined myself putting my foot on the accelerator and ramming his Astra all the way up Whitechurch Road. But let’s leave my twitchy foot for a moment and briefly examine the legacy of this uniquely Irish sub-species.

    Like many others, I’ve sat nervously across from his likes during job interviews in the sixties – he was the dour man who didn’t notice your exam results but did note the fact that you didn’t have a character reference from your parish priest.

    His was the mindset that almost trapped us in the sociological cul de sac of the 1950’s. His was the mindset that deemed the Ginger Man to be anarchy and which forbade that small expression of human exuberance that was Saturday night dancing. The likes of him could venerate the psychosomatic holes in Padre Pio’s hands but could see no sanctity in the marriage of a Protestant and a Catholic.

    I blame his shirt.

    Buttoned securely round his neck since 1957 it has obviously cut off the blood supply to his sense of humour – the part of his brain that might have once given him a capacity for whimsy and tolerance has long since calcified. But I do have sympathy for him, just a tinge mind, but sympathy nevertheless. This world and this country have moved on, he lives in a world that has stopped turning. But, hey, isn’t that the world he always wanted?

    Even though I was stuck behind him in a funereal crawl, I mellowed. People like him were to be pitied, their beliefs made them victims of their times – of course his driving would make him a victim of road rage – and soon, if the honking of the impatient van driver two cars back was anything to go by. As the cortege snaked along Whitechurch Road I turned up the slope of my driveway, the long trail of traffic behind crept up to fill the small gap I left.

    And from the rise of my house I could see Mr Certainty… still holding back the flow.

  95.  

    Thanks, Bock! Your concern is very Christian – unlike JC!

    A couple of things, I’d give it 3 weeks before peole notice they’ve all contracted herpes from kissing the same piece of wood. And by the end of September the rain will have rotted the tree as it wouldn’t have occurred to anyone out that way to varnish it or throw on some creosote. Too much like hard work I’d reckon.

    And has anyone else noticed they keep touching the figure in certain places that ladies only like to let select people they know touch and that in private mostly.

  100.  

    I suppose they could always get it pressure treated.

  101.  

    Pressure treated? And who would pay for that?

  102.  

    The taxpayer of course.

  103.  

    I hear there hasn’t been a wrap of work done in the town since it was found…

  104.  

    Unlike previously.

  105.  

    I suppose they could always get it pressure treated.

    Good Lord, who knows what they’d see after that?

    “Our revered Lady of the Stump pressure treated. Residents now see a slightly greenish tree stump”.

  106.  

    It was either that or suggest they get it impregnated.

  107.  

    Well the sheep might breath a sigh of relief

  108.  

    What if a tree were to start to grow next to it? Would that be a sign of the Immaculate Plantation?

  109.  

    Impregnated miraculously of course boss….
    I’ll put Jonesy ontae it strait away.

  110.  

    Jeebus Bock – that JC and the Sunshine Band II is some piece of work… Imagine him being your neighbour…

  111.  

    I wouldn’t think he’s the full denarius.

  112.  

    Nr.1 in rathkeale tonight. Monty Python’s The lumberjack song.

  113.  

    Devotion to a tree? Totally harmless.

    Obsessive disparaging of “tinkers”? Well, that’s another story…

  114.  

    Bankers, politicians, midgets, priests, tinkers, criminals, Muslims, all disparaged on request.

  115.  

    Ok Folks heres is the deal : I read both downloads they are fact based books – the man has five stigmata and this is the second coming and he is fulfilling biblical prophecies on front of our eyes with his writing and we are all so out of tune with how the second coming will happen we are not believing but nor are we willing to read the facts. Now they are free to download and after you read them you will understand this is armageddon as predicted in the bible

  116.  

    JC, do you take me for an idiot?

    Any more attempts to promote your nutcase book will be deleted. In future, use the name you first logged on with.

  117.  

    all this fuss about a 2000 year old slapper. she gets knocked up by some spirit (possibly raki) and then fobs off some poor sap that she’s still a virgin. did she even speak to joesph about the idea?
    hi joe, how was your day? listen strange thing happened today, was down at the well and met this entity and he wants to impregnate me. what you think about it? says his name was Zaphod or something, i’m not really sure.. kinda cute though.
    or maybe its all true, a holy spirit did descend upon her, then we enter a favourite theme in the bible, that of incest. assuming the holy trinity exists then jesus is his own father!
    and in order to impregnate his own mother there must be time travel involved. so in short, jesus is a time-traveling incestous bastard and his mother could not say no.

  118.  

    saw it this evening its a load crap take it away

  119.  

    why such things said about a harmles tree
    you peaple shude be a shamd of your self that is

  120.  

    Surely the above post is some one taking the piss??

    Or maybe a traveller who finished “Top in His Halting Site” and reading and writing

  121.  

    But perhaps good is an angle. Who knows?

  122.  

    She’s at it again!

    Jaysus, could ya not keep the oul’ wan under control? Doesn’t anyone watch over the travel expenses up there in heaven? If this kind of thing keeps going on, John O’Donoghue and various other politicians will be justifying themselves on the basis of celestial precedents. Or has she been listening to Jacko about the best way to do light shows? Maybe you should warn her about the danger involved in these kinds of antics – you wouldn’t want her to get half her hair burnt off by a short circuit in the lighting.

    I’m agree with Jeff mcC. You will be blessed all the time. And you will be one of us. So that we can pray for others

    I bet theres a few people on this thread regretting their posts today : I think this might be of interest to people on this forum.

    The Queen of England has officially been asked to return the Coronation stone to the Hill of Tara in County Meath IRELAND so the Messiah can be crowned upon it during his second coming as King of ALL Nations. The Coronation stone is Jacobs Pillow from the bible. Users on this forum should familiarise themselves about the stone at the links below. It was brought from Israel by the Prophet Jeremiah to Ireland and hidden at the hill of Tara upon Gods instructions. This would mean the end of the English Monarchy.

    Bock, you sure know how to write posts that garner attention. Okay, you had some help if you count the Virgin Mary showing up in a tree stump and all but really. All this sudden attention over three years later. You should be proud.

    So how did The Grateful Dead put it?
