  1. Ha! I love the idea of how to clean Jesus–it’s like something out of a Jodorowsky movie! It reminds me of boy scouts, when we had to retire a flag. There are all sorts of regulations for flag-carrying: you can’t ever let it touch the ground, you need two people to help fold it in a specific direction, rolling up along the stripes and into the stars if I remember correctly. To retire the flag someone has to read a prayer (I think, I’m going by memory here) while the flag is folded and lowered into the fire. Lucky me, I got to lower the flag once, but the fire was taller than I was so I just had to give it a toss onto the side, but it started to fall out of the cracks where it landed and I had to poke it back in with a stick while everyone stood at attention. Pomp and circumstance, y’all

    Hahah ‘mystical and profound RUBS up against the practical details’ in the search for cleaning products for Jesus….

    Coincidence that Mary Margaret sounds a lot like Mary Magdalene?
