Did you hear about the doves two children released with Pope Francis on Sunday?
Two white doves were released during a prayer as a symbol of peace.
Almost immediately the doves were attacked by a blackbird and a seagull.
How can you see this and not consider its symbolism? Irony is an understatement. I can’t help but to contemplate the dark correlation of this incident and our society today. I almost expected the sky to turn black and Maleficent herself to appear out of thin air to declare war against the good of the world. Seriously it just seems like something out of a fairytale. And for it to happen in the incredibly history and mystery laden Vatican just adds even more fascination to this story.
Fortunately the doves managed to get away. So at least there is a happy ending at the end of this story and good has triumphed over evil….for now.
