Sometimes, I forget myself. But I just had to continue my Big brother analysis. I just realized that when talking about mundus patet: Roman feast of the dead, that now Big Brother is having a funeral, constant mention of R-Eye-P (RIP) and everyone wearing black.
Well today, September 10th is the feast of St Nicholas of Tolentino! who..wait for it is..the Saint of; in Philippines; dying people, and souls in purgatory! now I'm guessing he is venerated in the phillipines, but is saint of death everywhere. Now he does have other attributes but they would only work in esoteric terms, such as he is patron saint of mariners (mundus patet associated with water).
Isnt it interesting, the association between water and death.
i may as well show you all his patronages:
animals; babies; boatmen; diocese of Cabanatuan, Philippines; dying people; Lambunao, Philippines; Guimbal, Iloilo, mariners; diocese of Mati, Philippines; sailors; sick animals; souls in purgatory; diocese of Tandag, Philippines; watermen; St. Nicolas de Tolentino Parish, Naujan Or., Mindoro Philippines
So, lets see the weird associations between this frankly disturbed big brother series, its coming demise, and its connection to Mundus Patet of Ancient Rome, and St Nicholas of Tolentino, and lets ask WHY it has any relevance at all.
Okay, This is the same Big Brother house that was used in BB11, where we had our little flood towards the end, in celebration of Mundus Patet, Nicholas Tolentino is of course patron saint of watermen. Davina Mcaw, the plastic parrot in the house, hardly ever used might I add - "Nicholas, a vegetarian, was served a roasted fowl over which he made the sign of the cross, and it flew out a window". Big Brother house(in)mates have spent alot of time recently talking about how much Big Brother has changed their lives, made them successful and - this is just from wikipedia may I add "He ministered to his flock, helped the poor and visited prisoners" well the housemates could be classed as poor prisoners.
Okay maybe this is a stretch, but there is no reason for Big Brother to finish now, its ratings are up. and there is the roman connection here, remember/realise that the roman PAGAN empire still exists, its gods are now saints, its pope is god on earth, it has been said many times. the church is the whore of babylon, never forget that. So these rituals do occur, and with millions of viewers big brother is the place for it - at least in britain.
Another interesting point is Dave from BB11, the guy who was continually possessed and called it "the glory", he was certainly an effeminate character, not really befitting the stereotype of a straight-laced christian character who was morally straight.
I have to leave it here, because as it is, I'm unable to ascertain what is going on here. Maybe once I've seen the final, which will of course be the Mundus Patet/veneration ceremony. expect to see some priests..even if theyre just actors!
And finally let us never forget the Ol' Nick is saint of souls in purgatory, Big Brother itself is a kind of purgatory, as these poor people have their lives strewn around the media, they await there fate whilst in the BB house, to face judgement on their eviction..question is..do they go to heaven or hell?
well for poor Nadia, it looks like Hell Daily Mail: Suicide Attempt
Also, crucifixion symbology with Dermot's Last Supper.
Why am I constantly disturbed by this show?! Theres something just so degenerate about it. :/
