Facing and listening to God together…
At least the Holy Father has good tastes in his office area for nativities. Nothing offensive here:

Bee here:I guess he doesn't want to impose his taste on others....God bless.Bee
And I thought our holy father was Woke! I am both deeply offended and disappointed that the holy father allowed himself to be photographed in front of a racist and patriarchal monstrosity of attempted sacred art! For example, there is no way any person in Palestine in the first century of the common era would look as average, white people from the UK or Northern Europe! I honestly believed, after the delights of PachaMamma, that many of the Vatican hierarchy had become Woke enough to ease up on having the biases of white, western, heterosexual males embedded into almost everything!!Oh, and while I’m briefly here in the unsafe place of this blog, i will state that I thought this year’s Vatican nativity scene was truly magnificent. It combined in a moving way elements of the post-structural, the postmodern AND the post-Christian!!Regards,Claire Clutterbuck.
The baby shouldn't be in the manger for another eight days.
Dearest Claire,Thank you for your contribution. I think I can assure you that this blog is PHYSICALLY a “safe place” for you, however, I very much doubt it will be for you an ideological safe place. Also, I strongly doubt this blog could ever be an emotionally “safe place” for you. In fact I fear, on reflection, Claire, that for you, dear gentle soul, remaining more than 10 minutes on the ideologically and emotionally UNSAFE PLACE of Southern Orders Blog could lead to various symptoms of emotional distress AND symptoms of physical illness too !! Including: insomnia, weight and hair loss, fatigue, substance abuse, tremor and night sweats.....such occurred to me several years ago when I ventured onto this blog for the first time and stayed on and attempted to enlighten the privileged, white, mainly elderly, Catholic males who dominate this blog.....and share with them the core indisputable facts of modern gender studies.......several months ago I attempted a Foucauldian and Derrida inspired deconstruction of parts of this blog for a university assignment.......the result was that over exposure to the patriarchal ideological assertions on this blog led me to relapse into cocaine, Xanax and chocolate cake abuse!I am only here today to read the genius insights of a contributor here who is brilliantly teaching all that the only truth regarding so called standards in art, music and literature is that there are no standards!Yours truly,Lucy Loisy.
Dear Claire,Thank you SO much for your contribution. I believe there is a "Woke" lake near you that you might need to take a swim in.....of course you must "JUMP" into it.......
Dearest Lucy,Perhaps you could join Claire in her "JUMP".......
