My comment – I thought this was a story, but it is a tale, yes? The world will end soon when the old rivers are tourist attractions. Just under the surface are the old towns, cities, rivers, and their catacombs. I “work with” the Nagas / Mer and know they “love” us so much they want us to be with them, to bring them light and life, so much so they will take us to their nagaloka (realm of the Nagas and Mer) that they will drown us. I love them when the light is shimmering on their skin in the stream, but i have a great fear of drowning and cannot go into water over my chest and cannot swim. Good true and spooky tale which i will reblog so TY.
Great intrigue surrounded the town of priests, which had once been the Catholic capital of Lancashire. Every spire and street name told a story, from the cathedral of St Walburge to Friargate, to the catacombs beneath St Peter’s. Each had its relics and dealt in a great number of copies to tempt the less discerning tourist.
However, Tom was not interested in the rise and decline of Christianity. Neither did he care for the oral tales passed on by the city’s people such as the headless black dog that haunted Maudlands, the wicked fairy on the market with his tricksy ointment, or the Bannister Doll.
Tom had been led to Preston by a new myth about the underground river Syke.
This watercourse had run from present day Syke Street…

I went to an old German Lutheran Church in the Burg last Sunday.I
It was similar to the Catholic Church when Father John was there, but he is away in Jordon helping Syrian refugees, so now there is a Theologian Seminarian Father Ken who took his place in later Masses and who was dry as bones in his demeanor. I think he was out of his ivory tower comfort zone driving all the way up here from Maryland and he had to read the words of the Mass but he Did pull down YHShVH into the host. I talked with him for about a half hour or so and after a bit he started mentioning watching out for “evil demons sneaking into white Wicca” as he called it. I have the feeling he is training to be an exorcist but cannot prove it though i know that under Pope Benedict the number of exorcists was increased about a hundred fold, and somehow i think he may want to exorcise the evil witchcraft demons out of me, LOL. (Postscript – the next time i went that he was there he avoided me like the plague). Father John was more accepting, forgiving and loving and just said “God forgives all” and offered me a blessing and prayer of healing. Father Ken refused to give me any blessing for healing because “i was not a Catholic” but did “pray for me that i convert” basically. I can’t wait until John returns from doing the good work he is doing. This whole statement is not a reflection on either Priest, just my impression as an outsider, was outside.
Now at the German Lutheran Church dedicated to St Michael that i visited the Pastor Larry was Very nice and accepting of my faiths, and did Not try to convert me. We talked for about forty five minutes in his study over coffee and velvet cake, hmmm. What impressed me was that he understood Every magickal, witchcraft, Tibetan Buddhist and Hindu word i spoke to explain my position. I will meet with him again before he goes on vacation, perhaps in his study, perhaps along the river, perhaps over a nice Weissen beer at a local pub.
Some of the notes i took during the service were – as it was Pentecost the men mostly wore red and the women white. Reminds me of the original robes of the Coven of the Catta when Doc Santee and Janee ran it based on European witchcraft before they met Sybil Leek and were initiated into the BTW. He was talking about the resurrection of the body, something which theologically i find absurd, but he spoke of it was a healing of one’s body now, something which i can relate to totally. We become the dying god (choose from several Middle Eastern and North African religions) and then we become the healed perfected risen god. Opposite to the Catholic church, especially the one i went to the week before which did the old Mass in Latin, the altar where the Priest and Acolytes were was Not closed off as in the Jewish inner Temple Sanctuary, but people were encouraged to come on up and huddle together. Soooo may people gave me the handshake and even hug of Peace. Sooo many people were so welcoming, friendly and helpful, and it was nt from the desire to proselytize, but out of True Love, or as we say in our Witchcraft “Perfect Love and Perfect Trust”/ Up in his study he had a hand painted scroll of Michael, a deity wich whom i have quite an affinity. Yes the Catholic church was more blatant about worshiping Mary almost as a Goddess (don’t tell the theologians or Benedict, lol) because it was May aka Mary’s month aka the Return of Persephone in our Pagan religions.
From here i am going to stress WP to its max and try to loan sht loads of pics from St Michael’s having reduced the image size by three quarters. Enjoy and Blessed Be and Blessings to All, and don’t worry my friends and followers, i am Not giving up /Diana Astarte Hekate and Faunus Kernunnos Baphometus for YHShVH and Mariam….
