But what I found even more "coincidental" in the movie was how Father Bob said how Costas would bring home strange nick-knacks and keep-sakes off the streets which he would find that meant something to him.
|The kingfisher Costas found dead on the street.|
|The Sacred Kingfisher that hit my window.|
The Bird that Flew into the Window
|The underside of the moth Costas found.|
Which reminded me of an old post I wrote about moths and butterflies a while back,
Moth Verses Butterfly Symbolism
|The sad clown in a matchbox that Costas had among his possessions.|
I couldn't help thinking while watching Father Bob bringing out Costas' little treasures that also resonated with my own life, just how rough life seems on the surface, but how a common spiritual undercurrent seems to be flowing mostly unseen underneath our conscious lives uniting us all on some metaphysical level.
And just after watching the movie In Bob We Trust I was wondering if the radio show he and John Safran have been doing for years was still on JJJ radio and came across this article below saying the last show would air on December 13th this year.
I also see nothing much else has changed in the news since the movie was made regarding the George Pell saga.

While I find comfort in a lot of the spiritual practices of the Church (not being a Roman Catholic myself) barring all of the going to hell crap, I do cringe at the dogma and politics that goes on by the men on the chessboard of The Empire and how they can just turn a blind eye to the problems staring them right in the face.

I have to say though that this movie makes great Christmas viewing as Father Bob and his work in the Church is what the spirit of Christmas is all about.
I think I will be giving this DVD a spin every year at this time, just as a reminder of what being a true Christian is all about.
A nod to Hitch-hikers Guide to the Galaxy and the meaning of life, the universe and everything?-)
|Adam Douglas Driver|
We were discussing the age of Adam Douglas Driver (ADD?-)
(Douglas Adams?-) in a Facebook group and when I looked up his birth-date at IMDB I found out he was born on the day of my wedding anniversary (November 19, 1983) also.
I loved Adam in the movie 'Tracks'.

And on the subject of Rome and St.Peters, I also found a bottle of St.Peter's Ruby Red Ale at my local bottle shop and it's not a bad drop either...which is strange ;-)
