Update: It turns out that this release of the doves by children within the benevolent gaze of the smiling pope has been a ritual practice on the last Sunday in January since Pope John Paul. And it’s not surprising, and not unusual that the all-white doves are then attacked by resident predator birds. So then the question, why does this pope, named after Saint Francis who so loved the world’s creatures, continue the practice? Let’s assume Pope Francis knew this attack would probably happen. Why would he then go ahead? The symbology (see comments below) just gets more and more convoluted.
UpSo. It appears that none of us are looking at this situation neutrally. How could we? The symbolism is too precise, the timing too exact. When thousands of people are watching innocent children release two defenseless doves of peace with our sainted Francis behind, what could possibly go wrong?
Crow: symbol of the shapeshifter, a master of illusion.
Crow medicine signifies a firsthand knowledge of a higher order of right and wrong than that indicated by the laws created in human culture.
Seagulls are spiritual messengers that demonstrate that a higher communication with guides is taking place. He shows how to see above situations with a higher clarity and teaches that there are many perspectives to consider. . . It is time to listen and watch for the nuances and timing of action.
I imagine most people would view this astonishing, seemingly divinely (?) satanically (?) choreographed symbolic scene as a bad omen for the Ukraine. I’d say it may refer more to Francis himself.
Remember, Pope Francis is a Jesuit, a master of illusion. We need to view everything this extremely clever, right-sounding, apparently “populist” Pope does and says with “many perspectives.”
