MEDJUGORJE | IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE..MEDJUGORJE SHOES..???

MEDJUGORJE | THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE MEDJUGORJE...


..as the great philosopher of social communication theory Marshal McCluhan once said...when trying to describe the effects of hedonistic consumerism on its proponents and practitioners...


Consumerism consumes itself

...now a current development in the MEDJUGORJE saga has encapsulated the phenomenon for what it is..a movement characterized by the spirit of the world...

..now available from an independent (claimed) purveyor of fashion are MEDJUGORJE silver glitter pumps..




..it seems just as the ruby slippers in OZ..someone if they purchase the MEDJUGORJE silver glitter pumps  can transport themselves to MEDJUGORJE in spirit...in particular in a spirit of consumerism which all to eerily echoes the words of the Lord ...

 For my thoughts are not your thoughts: nor your ways my ways, saith the Lord.
-Isaiah 55:8

.. one calls to mind the erotic symbolism associated with the red shoes of Hans Christian Anderson and his fairy tale 'The Red Shoes'...the shoes themselves symbolize erotic desires and material urges..as well the hollow-ness of the shoes speak of the need for someone to fill them with their bodily passions thus characterizing the spirit of the world and its fall into concupiscence...



...indeed it is a sad indictment on the state of affairs in MEDJUGORJE..and just as Dorothy in the Wizard of OZ was told by the Glinda the good witch of the North to tap her heels together and repeat after her there's no place like home...indeed the honorific owners of the MEDJUGORJE silver glitter pumps may do the same...closing their eyes and tapping their heels they can repeat the said spell..three times..THERE'S no PLACE LIKE MEDJUGORJE..



..let us be on our guard against the spirit of the world..with its fantasy spirituality..and trust in the Church ...amen
