It was a meme. It was supposed to be a joke. It is the kind of thing that gives us the real news.
I was scrolling through the memes at Mostly Cajun and came across one that listed speakers at a May conference at the Vatican. The topic was supposed to health and the soul. Check out these names that the Vatican thinks have important things to say,
Deepak Chopra (popular Hindu and New Age guru)
CEO’s of Moderna and Pfizer
I found myself wondering if this was some kind of Fake News from the right. So I did an internet search and found that it was totally accurate according to the Catholic News Agency.
As for the themes, it had this to say,
“In his remarks at the start of the conference on May 6, Pontifical Council president Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi said that the conference was organized around three themes, which he described as three stars that light up the sky: the body, the soul, and the mind.”I have a few friends who are devout Catholics. In case you don’t know any you need to understand that people who are serious about their Catholic faith are as concerned about the leadership and direction of the Catholic church as patriotic Americans are about America.
The rumor is that Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin and Idi Amin were not available for a May conference.
Will this insanity never stop?
