Hi evrybody,

What do you thing about this video:
http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=JDp3nPQqL_......;search=
Look at the very beginning, the priest hold his hands closed, each side of the Holly Body. I don't know if it is a usual thing, or if he sets an invisible thread or something else. What do you thing about this video? (Perhaps I should post on Christian Treads!).

Too bad they couldn't get rid of the "bounce."

Looks like they need some help. Maybe a helicopter spin with some blood spurting out of it would liven things up. Perhaps a Hippity Hop Host for the children.

Ugh, this is tough to watch. I really hope it is true because otherwise how terribly tragic and sad.

Geez, that is so bad. Takes you back to the old days when the priests used magic to keep the people in line.
So fake.

Not miracle, shame too that people will try to "help" God along like that.

As usual this is an invisible thread routine that goes TOO long. Smile

Once the thing did it's original 'BOING', what was the point of the extra minute and a half of footage.

Billy, the point is *supposed* to be that you can see the different colored vestments through the two wafers as the priests move around, proving the levitation.

I know this because I read the text. I had to read the text because I completely missed the levitation the first time I watched the clip. I guess I'm just not very susceptible to observing the miraculous. Smile

Yeah, I would never do anything like this.

I believe it. I make pancakes so light that they always float in the air. However, when you stab 'em with a fork, the helium leaks out.

Hmmm looks like a business scam to me...
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

I do admire those green robes. You could hide bunches of bunnies in each sleeve.

Did folk eat the "Hosts" afterwards? Did they feel lighter in spirit or get a thread caught in their teeth?

That the camera is strategically placed and the point of view is an unusual one are cause for suspicion, I think. How convenient it is that these combine to show the "phenomenon" so well. From a slightly different vantage point the whole effect would be lost.

If you were a priest and suddenly your holy toast started to float, wouldn't you look mildly surprised?

This guy looks like he's about to fall asleep, maybe he hasn't seen the floaty toast, or is this supposed to be an every day occurance at the Church of the Fancy Robes?

Someone should turn it into one of those scare videos.
After the first movement, you set there and watch it real close.
If a scary face was to pop up with a scream, it would have got me!!

After watching more attentivly, the priest seem having his hands open and not closed before the elevation, as I thought. But anyway. You are right Billy, the priest seems not to be surprised, and just after the elevation he makes the sign, and looks at his left for taking a bowl (something like that), as it was something very usual! Never this kind of thing happen in a celebration. I would be so impressed that I would be stopped for doing anything else! I can not believe he hasn't seen what happen too!...
