At last we've arrived!! Just the sight of the lovely liturgical space here, with all its warm, creative, welcoming felt banners, revived me from the deep shock I've been in since yesterday morning. I'm so looking forward to the Incorporated Liturgy of Reparations and Responsibility Acceptance for Abuses in Regards to Really Mean things done to Witches, Non-human Animals, Indigenous Peoples, and people who like Dancing---especially the dancing! The uplifting strains of syblyng Marty Haugen will erase the uncomfortable silence of "Saint John Cantius" from my mind...I was so pained at how the chyldryn there (so MANY of them...) were oppressed; they were not running around, talking, yelling, eating, drawing, or climbing--not expressing themselves in ANY way! I'm sure the young syblyngs at Spirit of Vatican 2 are a much more self-fulfilled lot....I packed lots of willow bark in anticipation!
